Denver Fathers' Rights Lawyer
Have your rights as a father been compromised?
The attorneys at Jones Law Firm, PC are committed to protecting our clients' paternal rights. As a father, you should never have to feel like a visitor in your child's life. The Fathers' Rights Movement is growing all across the country. Today, courts should focus more on the wellbeing and best interests of the child, and strive to arrange shared custody in a way that encourages both parents to maintain strong relationships with the child.
How have courts changed in determining child custody?
The Colorado state code § 14-10-124 speaks about how to determine child custody. These laws were put in place so that the courts would practice gender neutrality and realize that fathers, just as much as mothers, have an equal right to seek residential custody.
The courts will:
- Act in a way that they consider to be in the best interests of the children involved
- Examine who previously was the primary caregiver
- Examine who is more emotionally and financially stable
Although the state of Colorado professes to be gender-blind in regard to parental rights, fathers still need to know the facts on fathers' rights issues and have the support of an aggressive and competent
Denver family attorney. If you find yourself in the unfortunate and unpleasant situation of having to fight for your natural parental rights, we can help. Read some helpful tips for fathers in child custody disputes in this
