Fathers’ Rights Lawyer Los Angeles
Protecting fathers’ rights is important to Land Legal Group, as we believe both parents play an integral role in raising a child.
At our family law firm in Los Angeles, we concentrate on the best interests of the children who are in the middle of paternity suits, divorce proceedings or custody battles, to ensure they receive the best care possible from both parents. Fathers’ rights are important to our firm, as it is often the mother who receives primary custody of the child. This makes it imperative for men to know that they can play a larger role in the lives of their children, and in fact have the legal right to do so. Our experienced and dedicated attorneys will outline the rights you have as a father.
We provide free consultations to fathers who are inquiring about how to create a better life for their child or want to be involved in their lives. We understand that fathers’ rights can be a mystery to most, and that everyone’s circumstances differ. For these reasons, we give our undivided attention to each of our cases in order to provide a fast and fair resolution to our clients’ questions and concerns. As a father you have numerous obligations when it comes to supporting your child. You also have rights to contributing to their upbringing, and we can help you take the reins and legally enforce those rights.
What are Fathers’ Rights?
In Los Angeles and elsewhere in the nation, fathers’ rights are often overlooked after the initial paternity confirmation or divorce proceedings. The truth is, if the father is not the primary custodian of the child, he is responsible for paying child support, and his rights are a direct result of that obligation. As a father, your rights are expansive and can include:
- Blocking adoptions by another (Second husband, etc.)
- Care giving decisions & guidelines (Where and who can watch the child)
- Extended visitation rights
- Relocation by permission only
- Rights to vacations, holidays and school break blocks of time
- Consistent scheduled contact
- Traveling rights
In the end, fathers’ rights exist to provide the best life possible for the child by allowing both parents to be involved in their child’s life.
Finding a Family Law Attorney in Los Angeles
At Land Legal Group, we provide a dedicated and compassionate lawyer to discuss each case based on the information that is provided by the courts in the initial ruling of custody. Next, we delve into each parents role in the child’s life, and their outlined future participation.
If you are paying child support and are denied visitation, scheduled contact or communication or are simply not consulted on life-altering decisions that are made on behalf of your child, your rights as a father are being violated. Our committed attorneys want to help you be the best father you can be, and with your financial support comes the obligation of the mother and the courts to recognize your existence as a parent.
