If I Pay Child Support Why Don’t I Have Visitation Rights?

In order for a father who was not married to the mother to obtain time-sharing with the minor child, a paternity action requesting time-sharing must be filed. Often child support actions are filed by the state.

The courts generally require a separate paternity action be filed in order to request time-sharing.

However, since time-sharing can reduce a child support obligation, a father not only benefits by enjoying time with his child(ren) but also benefits financially by filing this action.
