Complicated family disputes can be even more challenging for fathers. In many cases, fathers may worry they could face disadvantages involving custody, paternity and child support. If you are a father facing divorce or another family law dispute, it is important to have a clear understanding of your rights as well as potential obligations in your case. Attorney Lisa Zuckerman is experienced in fathers’ rights and will fight hard to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
Any domestic violence allegation can have a significant impact on fathers’ rights. If you have been accused of spousal or child abuse, you need an experienced advocate to protect your rights, especially if false allegations are made to cast doubt in a divorce. Without representation, you could lose rights involving custody.
Custody and Fathers’ Rights
While a traditional relationship may make a mother the primary caretaker, modern family arrangements could mean that a father has primary care duties. In other instances, both parents share these duties equally. Attorney Zuckerman will fight hard to protect your rights and the best interests of your children in a custody dispute.
Parental Rights of the Father
Fathers must take action as soon as possible in cases involving paternity. Until the court establishes an unwed father’s custody, he will not have the right to physical or legal custody of the child. We can assist you in pursuing a court order to establish custody. We can also assist in defending you against unmanageable child support payments.
Fathers’ rights are changing and new legislation is giving men more leverage in court; however disadvantages can still be a pitfall for the unwary. When entering a legal dispute, it is best to work with an experienced and trusted attorney who can aggressively protect your interests. We will enforce your civil and constitutional rights as a father.
