Fathers' Rights Attorney in Denver
Have your rights as a father been compromised?
The attorneys at Jones Law Firm, PC are committed to getting their clients seeking fathers' rights the best results possible. These days, traditional parenting roles are ever evolving and the family dynamics have changed. The mother is no longer required nor expected to be the stay-at-home primary parent. Likewise, the father is not necessarily relegated to be the sole financial supporter of the family, having only a minimal role in the day to day raising and nurturing of the children. That was the old traditional assumption, but times have changed.
Parenting today is very much a team effort requiring time, responsibility and effort from both parents equally. It is no longer acceptable to just assume that the mother is the fit parent for the child based on her gender-specific role. So theoretically both parents have an equal chance of attaining primary residential custody. Children are not property however, so the decision of child custody and guardianship should be based on the best interests of the child. The Colorado state code § 14-10-124 speaks about how to determine child custody and goes into great detail of all aspects that will be considered before making a decision. 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. So if you are a father finding yourself in the unfortunate and unpleasant situation of having to fight for your natural parental rights, contact a Denver fathers' rights lawyer at our offices immediately.
These rights are put in place so that fathers never have to feel like visitors in their child's life. Fathers also deserve visitation or parenting time with their child and the Fathers' Rights Movement has grown is size 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 both parents can maintain a strong relationship with the child. Unfortunately, before fathers began fighting for their rights, the courts would simply determine custody based off of gender-specific stereotypes. While it has become more feasible for non-custodial fathers to get visitation, it can still be a difficult process. If you feel that your rights as a father have been violated or compromised in any way, contact our legal team today for assertive legal advocacy.
