|Parentage (For Unmarried Parents)||
When parents aren’t married and decide to split up, a Parentage case asks the Court to decide parental rights and responsibilities (custody), parent-child contact (visitation) and child support. If you and your child’s other parent don’t agree about issues affecting your child, it may be easier and better to have a Court order that says where the child will live and how long the child will visit the other parent. If you have a child support order in place, you can ask the Court for help if the other parent doesn’t pay.
