Fathers' Rights Lawyer In New York City

Protect Your Rights To Your Children

Traditionally, when it came to the best interests of children, a mother has been deemed the primary caregiver and her involvement was considered essential, whereas a father's was not. Presently, society is moving away from that idea and has been recognizing the value of the father's role. This means that child custody and support cases are no longer routinely decided in favor of the mother. Society and the court system identify the rights that a father has to his children and are more disposed than ever to accommodate them.

At Peter L. Cedeño and Associates, P.C., we know that a father deserves to foster a relationship with his children through the same means as a mother. Our divorce attorneys in New York City are dedicated to helping ensure that fathers' rights are protected in family law cases. Whether you are seeking custody of your child or want your voice to be heard in the decision-making process, we are here to help. We can use our 20 years of experience to be an aggressive advocate for your interests.

What Are My Rights As A Father?

A father has basic rights when it comes to raising, supporting, and communicating with his children. Furthermore, this reflects the rights of children to have equal relationships with and support from both parents. Thus, it is in the best interest of everyone that a father fulfills his role in his child's life and maintains a consistent paternal relationship.

Fathers have legal rights to the following:

  • Object against third-party adoption of biological children
  • Seek custody of children, whether as joint or sole custody
  • Parenting time to build relationships with biological children
  • Regular contact with children, through phone calls and other mediums
  • Establish paternity, which is important if the ex-spouse is married to another man
  • Collaborative decision-making for children's upbringing

Of course, courts will always determine the extent to which these rights will be exercised according to the best interest of any children involved. Ultimately, the well-being of children takes precedence to the rights of either parent, which means that parental rights can be revoked if a parent does not fulfill his or her role in a productive, healthy way.

We're Ready To Fight For You

If you feel alienated by your ex-spouse and have been denied the opportunity to form a relationship with your children, you deserve to take action. As a father, you have the right to communicate and spend time with your children, and they have a right to a relationship with you. At Peter L. Cedeño and Associates, P.C., our New York City divorce lawyers are committed to helping fathers establish and exercise their rights.
