California law does not assign special rights to one parent over the other. Mothers and fathers are equal in the eyes of the court, with the clear priority being the best interests of children. Family court judges look most favorably on settlement agreements that provide for both parents’ continued close involvement.
Child Custody Rights for Fathers
That said, asserting your rights as a father can feel like a very imposing uphill battle. How hard to fight and where you should give ground are tough, complex issues. Ventura fathers’ rights lawyers at Carla Hartley Lamas Et Al will apply a high level of commitment in representing your rights and interests.At Hartley Lamas Et Al, our Ventura paternity lawyers fully recognize the importance of fathers in the lives of both sons and daughters. Your focus may be on getting equal or near-equal parenting time, ensuring you retain the right to input on major decisions, or other goals. We are impeccably prepared to assess and handle your case requiring:
- Assertive, well-evidenced pursuit of equitable child custody and visitation orders in your divorce – or sole custody if the mother is abusive, addicted or otherwise unfit as a custodial parent
- A successful paternity claim enabling you to establish legal parentage and secure contact with a child you fathered and are willing to help support
- Resourceful defense of your interests as a father if you are facing false allegations of domestic violence, the imposition of a restraining order, or other adversity
Optimizing a Father’s Child Custody Parenting Plan
In many parental disputes, the language joint vs. sole custody, legal vs. physical custody and the like is less important than the specific stipulations in the decree. We help fathers secure the time and involvement they want with their kids. The child custody attorneys at Hartley Lamas Et Al will take great care in structuring a detailed parenting plan suited to your kids’ needs and your personal capabilities.
