Divorce Fathers’ Rights
Fathers’ Rights in Family Law Cases
Divorce Attorney in Las Vegas
Fathers are often abused in maintaining their relationship with children. In court they are often given little consideration when seeking custody. Even in pursuing meager visitation rights, they are subject to obstructions and even parental alienation by vindictive ex-spouses. At The Firm we vigilantly defend the rights of fathers in the Las Vegas area. We urge you to contact a Las Vegas divorce attorney for help.
Fathers’ Custody Rights
We defend the rights of fathers to equal consideration in child custody requests to award joint custody or separate custody in favor of the father. We press all the factors that support the father’s claim including ability to provide supervision and guidance, adequate living quarters, access to good schools and close relationship with the children. We insist that the court weigh the father’s merits on an equal footing with the mother’s.
Defense of Visitation Rights
Some mothers think that they can cut off fathers’ visitation rights for real or imagined offenses. Even if a father has fallen behind in child support payments, only a court can terminate rights to visitation. This is because continued and uninterrupted child visitation is in the best interests of the child. Where the mother will not produce the children for visitation, we seek court orders and as appropriate court monitored drop off points.
It is illegal for the mother to seek to alienate the children from the father. This can include telling the children about the father’s misdeeds or telling the children that the father does not care for them. Where this occurs, we take firm action against the mothers including court orders, motions for findings of contempt, switch of custody and even denial of future contact with the children.
At the Firm, we aggressively defend the rights of fathers to custody and visitation. We are militant against mothers who alienate children from their fathers. It is our view that children have a right to a close relationship with their fathers and do not tolerate interference with that right.
