Protecting Father’s Rights In Family Court
Fathers deserve to be treated as equal parents when it comes to the raising of children and the granting of particular rights and responsibilities associated with child rearing. In the past, the courts may have favored mothers as a more “natural” choice for raising children. But, it has been a long time since the courts actively and openly took such stances.
This does not mean that fathers are fully protected against the possibility of personal bias on the part of a judge. It also does not mean that every father is going to be treated as well as he should when it comes time to make determinations on issues such as:
- Child custody and visitation – Whether your child custody determination is part of a divorce or as a stand-alone legal issue, you deserve representation that has the skills necessary to genuinely help you.
- Child support – Fair child support determinations can be critical to ensuring your financial stability. No one should have to face unrealistic financial obligations because they have a child.
- Paternity – You may be forced to prove you are a child’s parent to be able to build or continue to enjoy a relationship with your child. From DNA testing to developing a parenting plan and setting child support, we can help you assert your rights as a parent.
