A Father Has Rights Too

By Brian D. Perskin & Associates, P.C.  Apr. 21, 2011 1:20p

Not too long ago, custody was awarded to the mother in a divorce. As more and more states are becoming more “up” with the times, New York State is following suit. If you are a father who is heading towards an uncontested divorce or a contested divorce, you should contact a New York family law attorney for legal assistance.

Child custody, child visitation, child support and spousal support can be some of the most heated and contested divorce issues ever addressed. For some couples, the question of who the children will live with and who will pay child support is simple and understood, for others, the answers to those questions may not be so easy. In modern times, more fathers are staying at home with the kids while the mothers are the primary wage earners. This switch in the normal male and female roles in the home, may complicate, who is best suited to have primary custody of the children and who is to pay child support. On the other hand, the mother may not be the most “fit” parent to raise the kids. Drug abuse, alcohol abuse, child abuse, neglect or mental instability may be a concern in regards to your spouse.

Whether you have a serious issue that needs to be addressed by the family court when determining custody and visitation, or if you want to make sure that your rights are protected and you are granted a fair visitation schedule, that maintains and encourages your relationship with your children, then you should hire a New York father’s rights lawyer. When you are getting a divorce, and you have children, you cannot afford to represent yourself, and risk losing valuable face time with your children. Although you are divorcing your wife, you are not divorcing your children.
