Michigan Expands Rights Of Biological Fathers

It’s no secret that men get treated differently than women when it comes to family court.  Governor Rick Snyder recently signed new laws into place, giving more rights to biological fathers in the state.

Kids need their dads, there is no debating that.  Now it’ll be easier for biological fathers to be a part of their children’s lives, even if the mother was married to another man at the time of birth.

The law updates a previous law, written in 1956, that presumed that the man married to the woman was the father of the child, and therefore responsible for supporting the child.  The biological father was denied rights, or even acknowledgement of fatherhood.

The new law will provide a court-ordered DNA test and gives biological fathers the rights that they would receive if the woman was not married.
