Fathers’ custody rights are something that can easily be overlooked in our society. In this society that we live in, the mothers almost always end up having more rights on the children more than the fathers do. But every situation is different.
If you are reading this article right now, I can assume that you are most likely a good father, and would like to know what your rights are as far as your children are concerned. However, the situation written above does not have to apply to you.
Every child has the right to spend the same amount of time with its father and mother. Just because you and your ex-spouse or ex-partner did not work out, it does not mean that you and your children cannot work out either. I understand that every situation is different, but some parents tend to take out the frustrations on their children if certain things do not work out the way that they would like. You and your ex-spouse may not have ended things up in a great way, and it is very possible for your ex-spouse to try and use the children to get you back, somehow.
I hope this is not the case with you, but if it is, do not let this happen to you. Know and learn about fathers custody rights, and protect your present and future relationship with your children.
The first and foremost important advice I can give to you is to call a lawyer who specializes in this kind of case and ask for a legal advice. Most lawyers are willing to give you a free consultation for a few minutes. If you truly value your relationship with your children it is critical to hire a knowledgeable lawyer to help in your case, and to ensure that your fathers custody rights are protected.
You may have to spend some money, but the peace of mind that you get in making sure that your relationship with your children is not affected, is much more worth it in the end.
In addition to finding a lawyer you may also want to keep looking online and at your local library to get better versed on fathers custody rights. The more knowledge you have, the better.
There is tons of information available on the net. Just be careful and make sure that the information that you are getting from other people on the Internet is accurate.
