When a child is born, both biological parents have a right to know. A child has a right to both parents in their lives. Fit parents decide what is in the ‘best interests’ of their children. Good, average, & poor parents are Fit & Equal parents.
Both parents have a right to be presumed Fit & Equal (equal in terms of both physical and legal custody). If these rights are challenged you have:
1) The right to counsel.
2) The right to be presumed a fit parent, innocent, and deserving of an equal relationship with your kids.
3) The right to Constitutional Criminal protections. In a Criminal proceeding with the protection of a jury, the “state” needs to prove you were a demonstrated serious and intentional threat to your child’s safety and that you acted with mal-intent towards your children.
