What Are the Parental Rights of Unmarried Parents?

Unmarried parents can sometimes have legal complications when they decide to separate. Unlike their married counterparts, unwed fathers, for example, are not automatically presumed to be the biological parents of their children, even if they are listed on the birth certificate. This lack of legal connection can prevent a mother from receiving child support from the father and a father from getting custody or visitation rights.
