When you and your child’s mother are no longer together, it’s in your best interest to know your rights so you’re protected. A qualified Vigo County father’s rights attorney can help you protect those rights.
One of the biggest points of contention in any separation or divorce involving children is that of child custody. It’s important to address these issues promptly so your children aren’t any more affected by your divorce than they need to be. The last thing you need is to feel as if your rights are being taken away or not know when you’ll see your children next.
Fortunately, as their father, you do have rights to your children, and the Indiana court system recognizes this. A Vigo County father’s rights lawyer at Rowdy G. Williams Law Firm is standing by to protect your rights to your children. We’ll work diligently to ensure that you aren’t taken advantage of during this trying time in your life.
A Father’s Right to Visitation
Often, the father of the children will be the non-custodial parent. This means that your children will primarily reside with their mother while you have a set visitation schedule. Keeping a consistent visitation schedule helps ensure that you are able to have a relationship with your children and allow you to spend the quality time both you and your children deserve.
As the father, you have a right to scheduled visitation, extra time to accommodate schedule changes, and frequent communication with your child. You also have the right to obtain important information about your children, such as medical records, school reports, and the like.
Most importantly, as their father, you have the right to raise objections and concerns should the other custodial parent make the decision to relocate to another state. Your attorney will do whatever it takes to protect these rights.
Enforcing Your Rights
It happens far more often than it should: a father being kept away from their child without valid reasons. Whether you are in the throes of a custody battle or your child’s other parent has refused to comply with an existing custody arrangement, you have rights to your children and we can help you enforce them.
Vigo County courts take these situations very seriously, and if one parent interferes with your parental rights, they could be facing felony charges. If things have gotten out of hand, we’ll be prepared to enforce your rights to the fullest extent of the law.
