The rights of unmarried fathers in respect of their children were, until July 2007, regulated by the Natural Fathers of Children born out of Wedlock Act of 1997. This entire Act has now been repealed by the Children's Act 38 of 2005. Previously, it was not possible for an unmarried father to acquire automatic rights in respect of his child in terms of the Natural Fathers of Children Born Out of Wedlock Act.
