It's no secret that fathers have historically been treated as second-class citizens in issues related to child custody, child support and visitation. Although many state laws now require Family Court judges to treat both mother and father equally and forbid judges from presuming that a mother is necessarily the only choice for custody issues, men still often find themselves treated unfairly. A fathers' rights attorney can help protect your legal rights as a dad and ensure you're treated justly in court when dealing with parenting issues that affect your children. Unmarried fathers who have signed voluntary paternity acknowledgements should also work with fathers' rights lawyers to obtain visitation and custody rights.
