Discrimination against unmarried fathers

Other Names:
Active prejudice towards separated fathers
Prejudicial treatment of single men with children

The legal status of unmarried parents in certain countries is inferior to that of married parents, and their children's rights are therefore restricted. Lack of child-care facilities may make it difficult for unmarried fathers to earn an adequate living, and in certain countries the legal status of unmarried parents is weighted in favour of women.
