Fathers' Rights

Huntersville Fathers’ Rights Lawyer

Protecting Your Interests as a Father in a NC Divorce or Custody Dispute

One of the biggest problems for new independent or divorced men is persistence in having a solid relationship with their children. A divorce is likely to change living situations, but this does not cause your relationship with your children to suffer.

On the contrary, NC fathers’ rights exist to benefit gentlemen who continue to have a substantial presence in their children’s lives and secure equal time with children. 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.

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.

Understanding the Importance of Equal Parental Rights

At David Self Family Law and Mediation, we strongly believe in advocating for equal parental rights, especially for fathers, in divorce and custody disputes. We understand the unique challenges that fathers face in the legal system and are dedicated to ensuring that they receive fair treatment and equal opportunities to be involved in their children's lives.

Equal parental rights are crucial for several reasons:

  • Fostering healthy co-parenting relationships: When fathers are given equal rights, it encourages cooperation and collaboration between parents, leading to better outcomes for the entire family. It helps create a more stable and nurturing environment for children, even after a divorce or separation.
  • Eliminating gender bias: Historically, there has been a bias towards granting primary custody to mothers. However, the legal landscape is evolving, and courts are recognizing the importance of gender-neutral decision-making. By advocating for equal parental rights, we aim to challenge and overcome any lingering gender biases in family court.
  • Protecting fathers' emotional well-being: Being an involved and active father is not only beneficial for children but also crucial for fathers' emotional well-being. Equal parental rights allow fathers to maintain a strong bond with their children, fostering a sense of fulfillment, purpose, and connection.

Skilled Litigation in North Carolina 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 in NC. My methodical approach to litigation enables you to feel confident that your children are protected, and your parental rights are secure.
