What Are My Rights as a Father?
Studies have shown that children do better when both parents are involved
as a nurturing influence in their lives. The guiding principle of the
courts in family law matters involving children is always centered around
the best interests of the child. Fathers have the right to be involved
in their children's lives, interact, and spend time with them.
Father's rights can encompass many issues pertaining to:
- Claiming and establishing paternity
- Requesting child custody and visitation
- Providing financial support for children
- Collaborating on how to raise the child, including living circumstances,
schools, religion, and medical treatment
Whether you are unmarried or divorced, we can help fathers assert their
rights and preserve contact with their children. We provide personalized
representation and individualized support, from the beginning to the final
resolution of your parental rights case.
