Fathers' Rights

Fathers’ Rights Lawyer in Huntersville

Protecting Your Interests in a Divorce or Custody Dispute

Child custody is one of the most difficult issues a father faces during divorce. As a Huntersville fathers’ rights attorney with over a decade of family law and divorce experience, I am dedicated to protecting your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment.

I represent fathers in North Carolina in all aspects of child custody and visitation, including:

  • Primary and joint custody arrangements
  • Visitation rights
  • Grandparent visitation
  • Modification of custody and visitation orders
  • Enforcement of orders
  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
  • Decisions related to religion, education, and upbringing of the child

I offer my services as an experienced litigator and mediator in these complex matters. To learn more, call (980) 223-3340.

Making Sure Fathers Receive Fair Treatment in a Divorce

Children are best served when they maintain contact with both parents. In the past, courts have historically favored the mother in child custody cases. While the law often requires parents to be treated equally in all custody and visitation decisions, many judges still believe that a child belongs with his or her mother. I am committed to making sure that custody decisions take the interests of the father and the children into account. I work to help you achieve an optimal solution to your custody case.

Skilled Litigation in Family Court

In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect your interests. When one parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations fail. Sometimes a parent may even pose a danger to the child’s well-being. In these cases, litigation is the most appropriate forum for establishing a father’s rights. My methodical approach to litigation enables you to feel confident that your children are protected, and your parental rights are secure.
