Fathers' Rights

Dutchess County Fathers’ Rights Attorney

Protecting Fathers’ Rights to Custody & Visitation

During a regular divorce proceeding, it can be understandably easy to lose track of all that is going on if you attempt to handle it without the advice and guidance of a divorce attorney. Amidst the hustle and changes, people may have their best interests pushed aside. In some cases, they are intentionally forgotten or ignored.

In recent years, there has been concern over fathers’ rights, or lack thereof, in divorces, especially when it comes to child custody. There seems to be a social bias against men that assumes they do not have the parental instincts necessary to care for and raise a child. At the Law Office of Dennis R. Vetrano, Jr., LLC, our Dutchess County fathers' rights attorneys are here to reverse that bias and support fathers in their time of need.

Ensuring Equal Rights Remain Equal

There is nothing in New York State’s legislature that claims a father in a marriage has less parental rights or responsibilities than the mother of his children based solely on the fact that he is a male. Men deserve an equal chance to prove that they should have primary or sole physical and legal custody of their children. Only state-approved issues should be weighed when determining custody rights.

You may not be granted full or primary custody of your children if:

  • You are not financially stable
  • You have a violent criminal history
  • Your occupation requires that you travel frequently

The absurdity of challenging a father's rights by virtue of his sex becomes even clearer when you consider same-sex divorces. In a marriage between two men, who should be considered the father and lose some of their inherent rights? To keep matters fair and balanced, as they should always be, parents must be viewed equally in the eyes of the law, whether they be a father or a mother.

How can a father win custody of his child? Our blog shares insight on the New York laws regarding child custody for fathers.
