Who’s right and who’s wrong? That’s a question that is sure to always come up in divorce. However, what about who has what rights? In other words, what rights do parents, particularly mothers’, have in divorce? While many people are under the impression that certain rights are afforded to women more than men in divorce that is not necessarily the case. However, both parties definitely have specific rights and women should know their rights if they are planning to go through divorce.
So what specific mothers’ rights exist in a divorce? Mothers have many rights when they split up with their husbands, or even if they are not married. Let’s take a look at some of those rights:
It’s clear that both mothers’ and father’s have rights when it comes to divorce and paternity. Even if your spouse or the father of your children threatens you and claims that you will have no such rights, that is simply not true.
Unless there are extenuating circumstances involved, like child abuse or domestic violence, or other criminal activity, then just about everyone has rights when it comes to divorce and custody.
