Ask A Lawyer: How Can I See My Daughter?

Spencer Williams, Cordell & CordellQuestion:

 

What rights do I have as a father? My daughter was born 3 months ago and now her mother (a one-night affair) will not let me see my child. What can I do?

 

 

 

Answer:

File a Petition to Determine Father-Child Relationship.  This will set up legal custody, physical custody, visitation and child support.  Document all of your attempts to see and visit your child in a custody journal or calendar.
