Fathers have and deserve the same rights as mothers do. Today both parents work to support their families, and sometimes, the stay at home parent is the father, not the mother. Speaking with an attorney is necessary to understand your rights.
There is a special bond that exists between a father and his children. Studies show that there can be negative effects on children that do not have a father in their life.
Children without fathers are more likely to use drugs, drop out of school and commit violent crimes. During a divorce or separation the court decides child custody, child support, and visitation rights for the parents. You will need to prove to the court that it is in your child's best interests as their father to spend as much time with you as possible.
Many fathers feel helpless and angry and are forced to go through an emotional, stressful fight just so they can in contact with their children. Some are forced to defend false abuse allegations and many are stripped of their assets. If you are a father seeking child custody and access, please do not hesitate to contact us for advice today.
