Fathers' Rights in Long Island, NY

Defend Your Paternal Rights and Child's FutureĀ 

Many people assume that child custody and child support are automatically gifted to the mother of any children. That is not the truth, however. Fathers have the same protected parental rights as mothers do under New York law. If you believe that your rights as a father are being compromised, you should speak with a Long Island family lawyer from our firm at your earliest convenience.

Protecting Your Rights as a Father in Long Island

Under New York law, child custody and visitation decisions cannot be based on a parent’s gender. Instead, the decision must always be based on what is in the child’s best interests. Fathers’ rights can include the right to child custody, the right to child visitation, and the ability to make decisions as a parent. In more and more cases, fathers are also receiving child support payments after a divorce.

Factors Influencing Child Custody Decisions in NY

In child custody cases, a family or divorce court will consider factors such as:

  • Who is the main caregiver
  • The parent’ work schedules
  • Each parent’s parenting abilities
  • The preferences of the child (when older)

Whether you are seeking sole or joint custody, pursuing visitation rights, embarking on divorce, or are involved in a paternity or other family law case, you can depend on our fathers’ rights lawyer. We are known for delivering the tenacious representation that gets results. Don’t hesitate to see what personalized, powerhouse representation can achieve for you.
