Fathers' Rights

Kansas City Fathers' Rights Lawyer

Are you facing a divorce as a father?

Fathers can often face extensive trials as they pursue a divorce and seek to establish their rights as a father. In many cases they can be discriminated against when they are discussing topics of child custody, child support and visitation rights. In the past, mothers would typically be granted automatic child custody rights, but that is no longer the case. Mothers and fathers alike are entitled to a full chance of obtaining child custody and other provisions with their child. If you feel that you have been discriminated against, it is important to speak with a Kansas City family law attorney from our firm at your earliest convenience.

Every father has a right to be involved in every aspect of the upbringing of his child or children, including education, medical and religious decisions. It is a difficult portion of family law, especially on fathers, because some courts tend to still favor the mother when making decisions involving the life of the children. Many fathers desire to receive an equal share of time with their children or to obtain sole child custody. Children in a divorce may also benefit from this determination. As a result, the best interest of the child will be our firm's focus as we seek to protect the rights of the father involved in this case.

Searching for an attorney for fathers' rights in Kansas City?

At The Reynolds Law Firm, LLC, we aim to protect the rights of fathers throughout Missouri. Safeguarding your rights often includes establishing paternity. Our firm can help you institute your position as the rightful father of the child. If this is successfully accomplished, you may be able to have a say in how your child is raised and parented. Paternity is most frequently used when a child is born or a pregnancy occurs outside of marriage to the child's mother. Birth certificates automatically prove that the child is legitimately yours, but if that is not the case, genetic testing may be required to establish paternity.

Kansas City Attorney Protecting Your Rights

As your Kansas City divorce attorney, we can help ensure that you are not left without a significant presence in the life of your child. What rights a father is entitled to can influence the result of child custody, visitation and child support agreements.
