Father’s Rights

Courts historically have awarded custody to mothers under normal circumstances; however, courts today more frequently award custody to fathers. Fathers, generally, have the same rights to their child as the mother. These include claiming paternity, objecting to third party adoptions, having a voice in making decisions, and maintaining a relationship with the child.

Protecting Father’s Rights

To get the best result in conflicts regarding a father’s rights, obtaining the services of a Golden attorney practicing father’s rights law is imperative. In determining the rights of a father, such as for custody, courts use the standard of who will serve the child’s best interests.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney’s experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney?

In general, how much an attorney costs will often depend on these four factors: billing method and pricing structure, type of legal work performed, law firm prestige, and attorney experience. Depending on the legal issue you are facing, an attorney may bill you by the hour, settle on a flat fee, or enter into a contingency fee agreement. The type of legal work you need help with will also play a role in cost incurred.
