What are my Rights as a Father?

On Behalf of | Nov 13, 2019 | Firm News |

When you are going through a divorce in Colorado, your worst fears often involve your children. Will I get custody of my children? How involved will I be? Will the mother keep me from seeing my children? What if the court allows her to move away? These are all real fears that could affect your life—and your relationship with your children. Luckily, Colorado is a very proactive state and takes father’s rights very seriously. Even so, you need an experienced Greenwood Village divorce attorney on your side throughout the process to ensure that your rights as a father are protected every step of the way.

When divorce turns ugly, mothers may try to keep their children away from their fathers. They can do this both emotionally and physically. This is known as parental alienation and it is not acceptable. If you are experiencing parental alienation while you are going through a Greenwood Village divorce, your attorney can fight to see that you maintain your rights to see your children. You have rights as a father and those should not be overlooked.

Child Custody and Father’s Rights

More courts are seeking to allow equal parenting time as long as it is in the best interests of the children. Before child custody is awarded, however, the courts will take into consideration your work schedule, your ability to provide for your children, your relationship with your children, and the amount of time you spent with your children prior to the divorce. The law is on your side and the courts recognize fathers more than ever before.
