Fighting on the Behalf of NY Fathers
When going through a divorce or family court case involving children, child custody, child support, and visitation are going to be issues. A father may be concerned that courts favor the mother for sole custody, but this is not the case. New York courts decide on child custody and visitation issues based on the best interests of the child or children, not gender of the parents or sexual orientation.
Because the best interests of the children are what the courts use to decide primary or joint custody and other visitation arrangements, there is no assumption that either parent would be a better candidate for sole custody (primary custody) simply due to a parent's sex. This is why it is important to have a skilled attorney to provide you with a powerful legal voice before the family law court.
Many fathers suffer damaged or broken relationships with their children when the mother or legal guardian fails to honor the court’s visitation schedule, denies visitation, or relocates with the children without court approval or notification. If your parental rights have been violated in any way, do not hesitate to retain the aggressive advocacy of our talented team.
