Orange County Fathers' Rights Lawyer

Personalized Attention & Compassionate Counsel

There was a time when courts typically awarded custody of minor children to mothers, as mothers were assumed to be more nurturing parents. Times have changed, and fathers now hold equal parental rights. If you are a father facing challenges concerning child custody or visitation, or are seeking to establish paternity of a child, it is important to get an experienced Orange County fathers' rights lawyer on your side.

We have proven skills to negotiate a settlement whenever possible. We also have the trial experience to aggressively fight for you in court when all else fails. We are committed to personalized representation, actively pursuing the best possible outcome in your case.

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.
