Fathers' Rights: You Have an Advocate
When the court is presented with a divorce case involving two spouses and one or more children, the court assumes that the husband is the father of the children in the marriage. If the fatherhood is challenged by either spouse, however, a paternity test may be necessary to prove or disprove fatherhood. Fathers are legally granted the right to spend quality time with their children unless the court considers them to be a threat to the well-being of the child. The court will consider the prior relationship with the child, work schedule, the father's ability to raise the child and more. The firm has fought aggressively for fathers' rights in court.
