Fathers Have The Same Rights As Mothers

It is important for fathers to have active roles in the lives of their children. The trends in the law tend to agree with this statement as well. Do not believe the myths that women are favored in custody battles.

At the Law Offices of Maribeth Blessing, LLC, we will explain your rights as a father and guide you down the path that best protects your interests as well as the interests of your children. We can help you keep a strong relationship with your child.

The Law Does Not Favor Mothers

More and more judges throughout the state are leaning toward shared custody arrangements. No longer do the courts favor one gender over the other when making child custody determinations. There are many factors that must be analyzed, including:

  • Which party will encourage contact with other family members
  • Present and past abuse
  • Criminal records of the parties involved
  • The relationship of the child with the parent
  • History of drug or alcohol abuse
  • The mental and physical condition of the parties

At the Law Offices of Maribeth Blessing, LLC, we have an extensive understanding of these issues and will work with you to ensure your family is protected.

You May Need To Establish Paternity First

There are certain instances in which paternity must be established in order to be able to assert your rights as a father. We can guide you through the process of requesting a paternity exam and be by your side to answer any questions you may have along the way. Once paternity is established, we will be able to pursue all different types of custody plans, including physical and legal custody.
