How to Protect Your Rights as a Father in Massachusetts
Some examples of your rights as a father may include:
- Your right to claim paternity
- Your right to prevent third-party adoption
- Your right to provide financial child support
- Your right to maintain a close and ongoing relationship with your children
- Your right to spend frequent and quality time with your children
- Your right to request a joint custody arrangement
Child Custody & Visitation Issues in a Divorce
When dealing with child custody issues, the courts are not legally permitted to show preference to either the father or the mother. In some instances however, there are still automatic preferences shown to the mother, making the father's rights come secondary even though the court is adamant about ruling in favor of the child's best interests. Our firm has extensive experience representing fathers in child custody battles and we have had great success. We simply have to demonstrate to the court that you are equally as capable of caring and providing for your children in comparison with your spouse or partner. Our firm can educate you on the many different types of child custody arrangements and we can assist with establishing or modifying a custody court order. Let our attorneys help you enforce your custodial and visitation rights.
Unmarried Fathers & Paternity Cases
If you are the unmarried father of your children then you have the right to seek out paternity before the child is born in order to gain legal rights to the child and to prevent your infant from being adopted without your consent. You only have 30 days after the child is born however, to file your notice for paternity. Any man who believes that he is the legal father of the child must give notice with the state registrar of vital statistics. We have assisted many clients in establishing or denying their status as a parent. In many cases mothers will come demanding child support payments, but if you are not the biological father, we can prove your case through paternity proceedings.
Are your visitation rights being denied?
If you are being denied visitation or you feel that the mother of your children is using your children against you, we can assertively present your case in court in order to ensure that your legal rights as a parent are protected. Don't make the mistake of thinking that your rights are invalid. You have rights as a father and it is important that you are aware of them; knowledge is power and ignorance is your worst enemy. As a father in a child custody, child support or paternity battle you may not know where or who to turn to for answers. By pre-arming yourself with the proper information, you have a much higher chance of obtaining a favorable outcome in your case.
