Mothers' Rights in Divorce
Protect Your Rights to Custody, Support & Visitation
In past decades, family courts gave mothers priority in divorce cases, especially when they involved orders for
child custody and
child support. As the years have passed, the laws have been altered so that no bias is shown toward one parent or the other. Nevertheless, fathers and even the courts can be hostile toward mothers who attempt to obtain custody or support orders. If you are a mother and are seeking a divorce, make sure to protect your rights by hiring a skilled Long Island divorce attorney to handle your case.
Samuelson Hause & Samuelson, LLP knows your rights in detail and will do everything possible to ensure that you are fairly treated and considered for child custody, child support, and maintenance (alimony). We will fight skillfully against any bias or prejudice against you simply because you are the mother and will present as strong an argument as possible to prove that granting you custody or support will be in the best interest of the child. We can also help you obtain a
visitation order if you are not granted custody. Contact our firm today to
