If you are a father facing a divorce with a combative ex-wife, or if you have been denied visitation rights by your former partner, a dedicated Orlando Fathers Rights Attorney could help. A lawyer with experience handling men’s issues will have a thorough understanding of both state and national laws concerning dads’ parental rights. A qualified men’s divorce attorney will be adept at negotiating shared parenting arrangements, countering false abuse allegations and pursuing full custody if necessary.
A legal paternity action can establish a child’s biological father, and in most cases that father obtains certain rights. Once that is done, both parents are required to share equally in the care and upbringing of the children. A father can also seek sole custody if the mother is morally, physically or mentally unfit to raise the child.
As the social and family mores surrounding the treatment of fathers in divorce and custody cases have changed, some courts have moved to allow more time-sharing opportunities for dads. However, the vast majority of courts still favor the mother in a majority of custody and visitation cases.
Hiring an experienced Orlando Fathers Rights Attorney can be one of the best decisions you make to protect your rights as a parent. A lawyer with years of experience will know how to effectively represent your interests in a courtroom trial. A lawyer with a national reputation for success in complex family law matters will be skilled at navigating the complicated maze of the legal system to achieve your goals.
