Father’s Rights Attorneys in Nashville

Gordon Law Group, PLC Protects Your Rights: (615) 933-2435

As a father, you have certain legal rights to your children and you shouldn’t be prohibited from being an active, meaningful part of their lives. In the past, many courts would automatically favor the mother in matters of custody and caregiving; however, laws have changed to better reflect the best interests of the children and to include both parents in the children’s lives as much as possible as long as it is in the children’s best interests. 

Why Call Our Nashville Father's Rights Lawyers?

  • Backed by 65+ Years of Combined Experience
  • A Reputation for Client-Centered Service
  • Aggressive Advocacy in Thousands of Cases
  • Proven History of Results Since 1990

Establishing Paternity in Tennessee

One of the first things that needs to be done in order for you to have legal access to your child is to establish paternity. If you were married to the mother of your child when the child was born, it is legally assumed that you are the biological father. However, if you were not married at the time, you will need to take further action to establish paternity.

There are a few ways to establish paternity:

  • Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity: This is a form that must be signed by both parents acknowledging that the mother and the alleged father agree that the child is biologically his.
  • Petition to Establish Parentage: This form is filed by either the mother of the alleged father to have the court order a DNA test to prove who the biological father is. 

Tennessee Parental Bill of Rights

Tennessee has an outline of the rights that every parent can expect when it comes to their children.

The following is a brief summary of these rights:

  • The right to reasonably long, unimpeded telephone conversations with their child at least twice a week
  • The right to send mail to the child without fear of the other parent interfering with it
  • The right to be given notice of the illness, death, or hospitalization of the child
  • The right to obtain educational records from the child’s school
  • The right to obtain copies of the child’s medical records from the health care provider or physician
  • The right to not have the other parent slandering them in front of the child
  • The right to a two-day notice about the child’s extra-curricular activities that parents would typically watch
  • The right to a two-day notice about planned trips with the child and a detailed itinerary
  • The right to reasonable participation in the child’s education
