Fathers’ Rights We're the Calm Beneath Your Storm

Long Island Fathers' Rights Lawyer

Protecting Fathers' Rights in Divorce Cases

As a father, you have the same exact rights during a divorce or custody matter as the mother. It wasn't too long ago when judges would automatically grant the mother custody of the children, ordering the father to pay child support and alimony without even acknowledging his rights, needs, or wishes. Although times have changed and fathers are now given the respect that mothers receive, there are still cases in which the role a father plays in the life of his children is underappreciated. If you are a father, and you are going through a divorce or custody matter, you can trust an experienced and dedicated Long Island divorce attorney at Samuelson Hause PLLC to know the New York divorce process and help you assert your parental rights. We can make sure your needs and wishes are acknowledged, respected, and upheld.
