Assert Your Legal Rights With a Trusted Charlotte Family Lawyer

As a father, you want what is best for your child. Unfortunately, fathers and mothers do not always agree on what is best for their child and the court sometimes has to step in and make decisions in the best interests of the child.

As a father, you have inherent parental rights that are equal the mother’s parental rights. While most courts recognize that children benefit from spending time with both parents, many fathers feel that they are treated differently during litigation that are mothers. The right attorney can help ensure your position is heard and your rights are honored.

How Do I Assert My Custodial Rights?

In the event you and the mother of the child cannot reach an agreement regarding custody of your child, either of you can file a custody action, asking the court to make the decision for you. Once the court case begins, you will participate in mandatory mediation and with the assistance of a mediator, you will attempt to reach an agreement. If after mediation there is still no agreement, then the judge will hear the evidence related to the best interest of the child and will make the decision.

As a father, you have the right to be a part of your child’s life and to participate in decision-making. Our father’s rights attorneys will work hard to represent you and ensure that you receive the best possible outcome for your particular case.
