You are in the middle of a separation or you are in the middle of an actual divorce, and you don't know what rights you have with regard to child support. Hello, I'm Robert Todd, and I'm here to answer the question: What are a father's rights during a child support proceeding? Generally speaking, every state has its own laws, so the first thing you want to do is make sure you're looking at the right state's laws that apply to your situation. Generally speaking, that's where the children are located, where the marriage was, and where you are. You may go on a website, check out your particular state's laws with respect to how child support is calculated, when it's due, who it's paid to, how often it's paid, and how long it's paid. If you go on that website and you don't really understand it, this is probably an area of the law where you should strongly consider seeking the services of a family law lawyer who specializes in this and does this on a day-to-day basis who can advise you of what your rights are. In fact, whether you should even be paying child support or whether you should have primary child custody and the like. So if you go on a website and you really don't understand it, strongly consider hiring the services of an expert -- a family law lawyer -- that does child support obligation law on a regular basis. I'm Robert Todd, and thank you for watching.
