Unmarried parents face special challenges — financial, emotional and legal. There is no “common law” marriage in California, meaning just because a couple has children together, does not necessarily entitle them to any of the rights as a married couple. However, the separation of a child’s parents is just as difficult and confusing than two divorcing parents.
Remembering that children want and need a relationship with both parents is important, and can facilitate a negotiated parenting plan. Other times, a child feels forced to “take sides” in their parents’ disputes, and this can lead to the alienation of one parent. Alienation is very damaging, and often requires the intervention of the court.
