In the past, there was a general presumption that mothers are the parent who provides much of the care and general nurturing that is most important. However, fortunately, the equal rights for fathers movement has gained speed since the 1970s and made a huge impact on family law as a result. Now, it’s a general rule in New York and elsewhere that parents who file for divorce will share joint custody even if the children’s primary residence is with the mother. The main goal of protecting a father’s rights is to maintain a meaningful relationship between the father and child even after divorce or separation. If you are a dad and need a fathers’ rights lawyer who can help protect your rights as a parent, look no further than the Law Offices of Eyal Talassazan, P.C.
Generally speaking, children are happier if they are cared for, loved, and supported by their actively involved father, as well as their mother. This makes for healthier and more functional members in a divorced family. Unfortunately, after divorce, all mothers may not agree with this assessment. Mr. Talassazan is a Nassau County family lawyer who has worked with countless fathers since opening his Garden City office doors in 2014.
In a worst-case scenario, a mother can file for divorce, get sole custody of the children, and then move out of state. This can be detrimental to a father-child bond, and, by extension, to a child’s psychological welfare as he or she grows up. As a firm that focuses on family law issues, we have a deep grasp of the legal and emotional issues involved. We work with fathers to get to the heart of the matter and figure out a fair and equitable custody plan or visitation agreement, even when we have to go to court to do so.
There are several issues to consider when protecting your rights as a father and parent. These include:
In the era of the dual-income family or even the mother as the main income earner, it is by no means a given the mother is the primary caregiver. Mothers will always have a unique bond with their children, but fathers do as well, and you need an attorney who is ready and willing to protect that bond at all costs.
With so much on the line, don’t hire just any attorney to represent you; hire a dedicated fathers’ rights lawyer from the Law Offices of Eyal Talassazan, P.C. We are here to fight for you and your rights as a father, every step of the way.
