Fathers’ Rights in Iowa

The courts will always favor the "best interests of the child," and so do not have a preference for mothers over fathers, and vice versa, when determining child custody and visitation rights. Fathers have just as many rights as mothers do under Iowa laws.

As a father, you have the following rights:

  • The right to parent your child with appropriate visitation or custody.
  • The right to make decisions concerning your child’s overall welfare, medical needs, education, and religion
  • The right to a fair and equitable child support order
  • The right to petition the court for modifications to child support or custody orders should you or your ex-spouse experience a substantial change in circumstances relating to work, family, or financial situations
