Help With Parental Rights
For many years, parental rights consisted of mothers being granted custody and father receiving some form of visitation (and a child support obligation). Now, parents often have more of a co-parenting role, with custody being more evenly divided.
At Law Offices of Edward A. Brown, P.A., we are able to help parents arrive at parenting plans that work with these more complex arrangements.
“De Facto” Parental Rights
“Parental” rights are evolving. Maine law now recognizes “de facto” parental rights for people who are not the biological or legal parents in some cases, so long as these folks have actually acted as parents to the child. See Pitts v. Moore, (2014 ME 59), and The Maine Parentage Act, 19-A M.R.S.A. §1831. We have experience in these types of cases.
