Father’s Rights

Father’s Rights is a popular phrase these days and the crux of the matter is whether fathers are discriminated against by the courts. Many years ago the laws were set up to favor the mother and even operated under the “tender years” doctrine, which presumed that children under seven needed to spend most of their time with their mother.

But in our current legal system, the law gives fathers equal standing as parents, and we will advocate for clients who are fathers to ensure their custodial rights will be respected and that they will not be unfairly penalized financially (in payments of child support or maintenance) because of assumptions about dad as the sole breadwinner, when in reality in most families both parents work full time.

If you’re a dad, you’ll want to make sure that you’re represented by an attorney that will fight for what’s rightfully yours.
