Fathers' Rights

We are here to defend the common myth that mothers are favored in family courts. Both parents have equal rights and responsibilities under the law. We know that fathers play an important role in their children's lives, and we want to help to preserve their relationships. At Robinson & Clapham, our attorneys are on your side from day one. We will formulate a game plan to help achieve the best possible outcome and secure your parental rights.

We Help Fathers And Mothers To Form Amicable Agreements

As experienced lawyers, we have witnessed firsthand the negative effects of highly contested divorces on young children. In some cases, parents use their children as bargaining chips to get back at their spouses. That is why we look to help fathers, as well as mothers, consider the big picture, reach agreements, and when necessary, fight for the best interests of their children during litigation. We want to ensure that your kids do not get caught in the middle, and we will step in to prevent this from happening.

What Factors Do Courts Consider In Custody And Visitation Cases?

There are numerous factors that come into play when determining a child custody or visitation arrangement. Below are just a few key issues we will address:

  • The child's age and physical and mental health
  • The physical and mental health of both parents
  • Each parent's ability to provide for the child
  • The child's routines, residence and access to education
  • The child's preferences will be considered if he or she is old enough or mature enough to decide which parent to live with
  • The willingness of both parents to communicate and maintain civil contact while sharing custody

Many parents, particularly fathers, do not understand their rights. We know what you are up against and your rights under the law. No matter the stage of the process you are in,
