father's rightsSeveral recent court cases have focused media attention on a father’s equal custody rights. Though courts may not discriminate against fathers, it has traditionally been difficult for fathers to win custody of children. If the mother is also filing for custody, a long and difficult battle usually follows. However, with the help of a father’s rights lawyer, this situation can be much less stressful.

Father’s Rights to Custody!

Attorneys can help fathers win full or joint custody of children. While the lawyer is preparing the custody petition, the father should continue to make regular child support payments because this speaks to his character. The father should adhere to the child visitation schedule and call the child regularly when the youngster is not in his custody. Building a strong relationship with the child and being aware of how the youngster is doing in school shows that the father cares. Father’s rights is more than just winning in court, it involves doing the right thing for your children.

The parenting plan, which should include visitation records, should be submitted to the court at the custody hearing. Fathers should note their attendance at religious, educational, and social events in which their children take part. School plays, birthday parties, and sporting events are a few examples. By attending these events, a father shows that he has a meaningful relationship with his child, and proves that he deserves the fathers rights he is in court to defend.

Fathers should prepare space for their children within the home. The judge will ask about housing accommodations and plans to handle transportation to and from school and after-school activities. Fathers should have a plan for each day and present this to the court. They should be fully aware of the responsibilities that custody entails. A good father’s rights lawyer almost always wins custody cases so fathers should be prepared for the outcome.

Though it may be difficult at times, a father petitioning for custody should remain respectful of the mother of the child. His treatment of the mother can be a factor in determining custody. If the father treats the mother in a rude or disrespectful way, this affects the child. A judge recognizes this and considers it when making a fathers rights custody decision.

It is never too late to fight for custody of a child. An attorney will explain father’s rights and prepare a case for joint or full custody. By developing his relationship with his children, preparing living space in the home, and creating a parenting plan, a father increases the chance of a desirable outcome. More fathers are being awarded custody everyday, enabling them to create a lifetime of memories. Fight for your father’s rights today–don’t give up, your children are depending on you!

  1. Hi, I need help. I’ve been with my boyfriend now for 3 years and recently got engaged. He has a 7 year old daughter. Her mother works several hours a day and the girl doesn’t see her often. We want to take her out of the school she is in now because she is falling behind along with the other students in her class but the mother will not let us even have her on independent study every other week wen we have her. It also cost’s us a lot of money to drive her 30 miles into school and back because the bus wont come to our drive and its never on time. The mother wont listen to anyone but the higher authority… the teacher. The mother recently moved back in with her parents of which I have a feeling the mothers dad touched the little girl inappropriately because she would NOT let her father help her wash her hair because she was afraid he would see her. He has never done anything to her and is very caring of her as well am and she will only let me help her bathe.We really need to get full custody of this little girl or she’s going to be a mess when she is older. Her schooling will be behind because the mother doesn’t want to be a mother and take time to take her kid to a school that will get her caught up and on the right track. And cant be positive towards her daughter and speaks ill of the father to several people as well as slaps her child across the face in public. PLEASE HELP US!!!!!! Please

    1. This sounds like the exact type of case where a father’s rights attorney can help. Documenting all of these things is the first step. filing for custody is the next step. What you want to do is to order a psych evaluation of both parents to have the mom who doesn’t care evaluated so that an expert can report to the judge that she is unfit. Ask to appoint a “Child representative” or a “guardian ad litem” to represent the minor child, that lawyer will look out for her best interests and will fight for whats best for the child.

  2. BM is demanding child support from my bf and wants fulll custody now out of no where. She cheated on him when the baby was born and he even bought a house for them. she married the guy she cheated on him with, had another child, then divorced him cause he ‘abused’ her. my bf has been sending her money since they split. we have been dating for 4+ years, and this whole time shes had about 4-5 boyfriends, moving back and forth from CA to TN (where her parents live), can’t hold a stable job, out partying and drinking and now demanding child support and custody for no reason and We always drive to TN to pick up the child. she offered to give the child to us cause she dont have time to take care of her and all of the sudden she has a change of heart and threatening us? what can i do? HELP

    1. This is tough. first thing to do is get an order in court that stops here from taking the child to other states. Then, filing a petition for Temporary and Permanent Custody will establish his demand for keeping the child. Get started immediately. This is not cheap, fast, or easy. Get ready for a battle, and don’t give up, you are on the side of the righteous!

  3. For the past 3years ive shared joint custody of my 2children in 2008 my kids mother got arrested and is now on parole for mail fraud..She collexts 1,000 amonth from me and lives in a 2 bedroom apt with my 11yr old son and 8yr old daughter ..I want FULL custody of my kods i just purchased a2family house and im engaged with a baby on the way

    1. This type of situation is all too common. Mom wants the kids so she can bilk the father out of child support money; all the while she breaks the law, refuses to take care of the children properly, and feels as though no one can oppose her terrible parenting because father’s don’t have the same rights as a mother. Well that is not how the law works anymore! Hiring a father’s rights attorney is the first thing you should do–and you should do so immediately. You will need to file an Emergency Petition for Temporary and Permanent Custody based on the illegal activities of your ex. You will need to prove the allegations that you allege and this is where an attorney is especially useful. In many states, asking the judge to order an Emergency Intervention is also a good idea,as this court appointed “intervenor” will find out the truth and will report back to the judge, sealing her fate.
      Don’t waste any more time! Fighting for your father’s rights requires swift, fast action! Good luck!

  4. My BM has fought me and I file a police report on her as well as voice messages saying she will kill me or want me dead and also my mother as well .

How do I go about getting custody for my baby girl… Please help me all I want is my daughter and I will do anything to keep her with me court wise

    1. When an ex makes serious threats to your physical well-being, as well as others in your family, you have no choice but to contact the proper authorities and make it clear to them that you are frightened and need help to protect your family. This is what Orders of Protection are specifically for. A good idea is to speak with an attorney for a free consultation and see if you can handle it on your own or whether you need the help that only an attorney can provide. but make a police report soon and do not waste time-this is serious!

  5. GOING BACK TO 1989 WHEN THE EQUAL RIGHTS ADMENT FOR WOMEN WAS PASSED
    !!! THREE DAYS LATER 2 JUDGES HERE IN MADISON COUNTY NY WERE ASKED HOW THEY WOULD GIVE CUSTITY TO A SINGLE MOM VS A SINGLE DAD. THEY SAID THE MOM AS A RESALT THEY WERE ASKED TO STEP DOWN OFF THE CASE ON GROUNDS OF SEXAUL DISCRIMATIGON .. AS A RESALT I GOT CUSTITY OF MY SON AS I WAS ABLE TO PROVIDE HIM A BETTER HOME AND LIFESTYLE!!!! SO REMBER THE EQUAL RIGHTS WORKS BOTH WAYS AS BY LAW A JUDGE CAN NOT BAST A DECISION ON SEX (MALE OR FEMALE) AS IT IS DISCRIMATION. IF YOU ASK THE JUDGE HIS PREFENCE IN A MOM VS. DAD WHO THEY RULE IN FAVOR OF AND THEY CLAIM A PRESIFECT SEX THEN YOU CAN ASK THEM TO STEP DOWN…. IF THEY DO NOT STEP DOWN THEN IT IS MISTRAIL BE THE SEXAUL ADMENT ACT .. THAT WAS THE DESIGN OF THE FATHERS RIGHTS ACT THAT WAS STEMMED QUICKLY AFTER THE EQUAL RIGHTS ADMENT ACT!!!!
