New York Fathers' Rights Attorney

Understand Your Rights as a Father During a Divorce

Some decades ago, divorce proceedings tended to favor the mother in matters regarding the children. Of course, times have changed, and the courts' application of the law has evolved to reflect this. In any matter regarding shared children in a divorce, fathers have rights equal to the mother's rights. Issues such as child custody and visitation are determined based on the best interests of the children and any factors relevant to this central issue are taken into account.

In this day and age, it is common for mothers to be gaining more traction as breadwinners and serious forces in the workplace. Men are therefore becoming more and more common figures in the family environment—even taking the place as stay-at-home dads to help raise children while the mother pursues a career. It is for this reason that fathers have rights that should be protected during the divorce process, which may include the right to receive child support.

How Can Eiges & Orgel, PLLC Assist You?

Fighting to Help Fathers Retain Their Legal Rights

Unfortunately, fathers' rights are often threatened by injustices in the legal system, as well as other factors. For example, the issue of paternity may arise either because the parents were not married at the time the child was born or because the mother has called it into question. Your ex-spouse may be failing to abide by your visitation arrangements.

Your New York City divorce lawyer can guide you through the steps you need to take to protect your rights, whatever the circumstances. If your ex-spouse is not paying the child support owed, your legal counsel can assist with enforcement actions. You may also be able to obtain modifications of support arrangements when circumstances warrant.
