Even though it is a traffic ticket, traffic courts abide by the same rules of procedure and afford everyone the same Constitutional Rights as in criminal courts. You have an absolute right to not say anything in court. You may not be forced to testify against yourself and you are not required to make any statement in your defense. The judge is not allowed to consider your silence in his decision.

Absent a court order to the contrary, the father is entitled to the same rights as the mother. He is entitled to love and support the child, participate in the decisions for the child, visit and nurture the child, and share a meaningful relationship with the child.
