A couple with children outside of marriage faces many of the same difficult decisions and challenges as a divorcing couple if the relationship breaks up.
Child custody and visitation orders must be established, and the arrangement best for a child may be a point of serious dispute. In other situations, a mother or father who has not had custody or visitation must pursue these rights for the good of a child.
