When it comes to divorce and custody, one concept that people often misunderstand is the fact that fathers have rights, too. A common misconception is that the mother always gets the better end of the bargain when it comes to divorces and child custody rights. Actually, this is not the case: Fathers are entitled to the same rights that mothers are, though some need a fathers rights help program to help them.
At National Family Solutions, we can help you determine your rights. We feel strongly that no father should be kept out of the life of their child. Research agrees with us; children who have strong relationships with their fathers tend to do better overall (in school, in relationships with others, and during adulthood) than those who do not. Keeping children from their fathers is not fair to the child or the father.
Sometimes, however, fathers rights help is needed to navigate the legal system. If your child’s mother is trying to keep you from your child, we can help. Even though you might not have the money to pay for a private attorney, you still have the right to use the legal system to gain rights to your child. This is where we come in with low-cost, effective advocacy and resources. Sometimes, fathers make mistakes when it comes to securing their rights.
For example, they might assume that the mother will be awarded custody and they discontinue having a relationship with their child. Other times, they move out of the family home and don’t make themselves available to their children. Some dads are afraid that pursuing custody will make the situation harder on the children and will elect not to fight for them. In the end, though, this can lead to a broken relationship that is difficult to repair.
In some cases, fathers deserve sole custody or primary custody of their children. In these cases, we can provide fathers rights help to assist you in getting the child support you deserve from your child’s other parent. If you have been denied visitation with your child, now is the time to seek out fathers rights help services. We believe a father’s right to custody is important and are here to help you fight for it. You deserve to pursue a relationship with your child and your child deserves the chance to bond with you, too. Do not give up your rights; we can help.
