Discover These Brutal Legal Realities Unmarried Fathers MUST Face
All too often an unmarried father relies on no more than the mother's promises to let him see his child. When a disagreement arises — and they often do among umarried parents — many men assume the law treats unmarried fathers the same as unmarried mothers. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth.
Here's what you MUST know if you are an unwed father:
Unless you legally establish paternity, you can be forced to pay child support but never be allowed to see your child.
You could owe child support from the day your child is born, even if the mother takes legal action months or years later.
She can give the child up for adoption without your consent. You could still owe child support but have no visitation rights.

What Men Say About Dads.Law
Patient. Relaxing Process
Living out of state and facing a judge for the first time, I was very nervous, but Keith Flinn was great! He patiently explained exactly what was going to happen, how we would handle everything, and even walked me to the courthouse personally. Mr. Flinn definitely made the entire process very easy and as relaxing as possible.
They Stay in Touch
I had a great team that gets things done. Brian has great ideas and actually follows through with actions. They stay in touch and let me know what's going on. My previous attorneys never returned calls. Highly recommend.
These People Don't Mess Around
Had a legal problem with one of those crazy exes. I never knew that was a real thing until I had one of them! Keith Flinn is awesome, we were in court for a couple of minutes before Keith uncovered all the lies! the truth came out case dismissed.
I went from defense to now offense with Brian on my side, Now we're going to recover any expenses we can and keep her from ever coming around me again! These people don't mess around and they have a huge team of lawyers so they can find the right fit.
Hiring an attorney is usually expensive but I was surprised they were as affordable as they are. On the first day of court, they sent three of the big dogs over just to let the other side know we ain't playing! They weren't playing we won! they lost! Don't get stuck doing the Walk of Shame with some "other attorney"
A Great Place
Great place for helping fathers in Oklahoma.
Confidence, Peace of Mind
They have been the kindest and most respectful lawyers I have ever dealt with in my life. Retaining their services gave me the peace of mind and confidence that I needed at such a hard time of my life. I am thankful beyond words for the help they have provided me throughout my time of need.
And I could not be more thankful for the way that they continued to reach out to me wanting to help me when I almost made the mistake of hiring an attorney that could not have done 10% of what these people are capable of. Don’t even second-guess your decision to retain their services in your time of need, and you will be as thankful as I am.
Smooth. Great Job
The legal team assisting me with my divorce case has been doing a great job helping me understand and advise my case. The team made the process smooth. I'm able to get in contact with them when needed. Thank you for your help!
Very professional and courteous! The staff is always nice and very attentive. The team that has been assisting me through my divorce and custody arrangements has truly been amazing. They are very thorough in everything they do! Megan, Keith, and Brian are amazing and I could not have asked for a better team.
