Equal Parenting Rights for Fathers
When it is deserved, we believe that equal parenting rights should exist for both Mothers and Fathers, so long as it is in the best interests of the child. Coley Hennessy Cassis Ewasko’s pursuit of fair and equitable resolutions to the disputes that arise during the dissolution of a marriage or relationship sometimes require us to advocate for equal rights for Fathers. Experience shows that many Fathers struggle when attempting to gain equal parenting rights. When the best interests of the children and all parties involved require the Father to maintain an equal share of parenting duties and rights, the Family Lawyers at Coley Hennessy Cassis Ewasko will fight on behalf of Dad’s Rights.
Representing Fathers in Need
When disputes arise over Custody of children, Division of Family Assets and determination of Spousal or Child Support, the law is complex and the process can be lengthy. Of course, our law firm is dedicated to fairly serving the interests of both Mothers and Fathers. Our experience tells us that we can do a service to Dads by assuring them that they also have a right to be treated fairly in these Family Law disputes.
Financial Considerations for Fathers In Divorce
The financial aspects of a Divorce typically involve property issues, spousal support claims, and figuring out how to fairly apply the Child Support Guidelines to the facts. If your main issue is one of preserving family assets, saving on spousal support, or determining a fair amount for child support, we have an excellent track record in such cases.
Parental Rights of Fathers
In some cases, Divorces involve the attempt of a parent to remove the other parent from the lives of their children. Unfortunately, many Fathers become disenfranchised and are forced to go through an emotionally taxing and stressful battle in order to simply maintain contact with their own children. And, some Dads experience chronic depression as they are unfairly stripped of their assets beyond reason.
Whether you are a Father or you are a Father-To-Be, you have certain legal rights and obligations towards your child. Your rights include visitation rights, custody rights and out-of-province custody rights. You may have the right to file for joint custody of the child or for shared parenting. And your obligations consist of supporting the child financially. If you are an unmarried father our lawyers can help you file for paternity to establish your parental rights and represent you in any child support order you have received.
In some cases, during a divorce, one parent can turn the child against the other parent. And, in extreme cases, Fathers can be subjected to false allegations of physical or sexual abuse. These unfortunate, but common occurrences are referred to as cases of parental alienation. The Family Lawyers at Coley Hennessy Cassis Ewasko strive to advocate for Fathers who are being treated unfairly and put an end to these unfortunate battles in the interests of the children and getting life moving in a better direction.
