About This Episode

logo-huffington-postThe recent New Jersey ruling blocking an unmarried father from being in the delivery room during the birth of his child has brought to the forefront an issue that desperately needs attention: the rights of an unmarried father.

Cordell & Cordell Principal Partner Joseph Cordell wrote in his latest Huffington Post column with the increasing trend of having children out of wedlock, it is time to readdress the rights – or lack thereof – held by unwed fathers.

The case in New Jersey has put a spotlight on just how little control a father has when he is not married to the mother of his child.

“Being married does not automatically make you a good parent; just as being unmarried doesn’t automatically make you a bad parent,” Mr. Cordell wrote. “Unwed fathers deserve the same opportunity to be a part of their child’s life, and it’s time we stop making them work so much harder to obtain basic parental rights.”
