Bill stretching parental rights gets Michigan families' notice

Would it be beneficial for Michigan children to have more than two parents? Legislation in California to expand legal parenting could provide more resources for kids when families involve more than two adults who care about a child's well-being. The proposal recognizes "extra" parents who are connected to children through same-sex marriages, surrogacy, fertility methods and adoption.

Bills passed by legislature would boost father's rights

At the beginning of June, legislators in Michigan passed bills which, if signed into law by the governor, would help biological dads assert their fathers' rights to be involved in their children's lives. The bill would be especially helpful in circumstances where the child's mother was married to someone else when the child was born.

Court awards visitation rights to unmarried dad

An unmarried father estranged from the mother of his daughter waged a court battle over custody for the child he only saw once in four and a half years. On April 27, a judge issued an order mandating that the father be granted ongoing visitation rights with his daughter. Single fathers in Michigan frequently have to wage a battle for the right to see their children and be involved in their lives. This case may affect similar rulings elsewhere in the country

Archaic Michigan law denies biological father custody of daughter

An old Michigan law stands in the way of a biological father's right to custody of his daughter, while the man who the state says has all the rights is in jail on drug charges. The man is now the inspiration behind a bill that will allow biological parents to petition for child custody in some circumstances.
