What Are Father’s Rights?

Courts have historically favored mothers in normal child custody cases. However, family law courts today understand the importance of both parents taking an active role in their children’s lives. Father’s rights support active participation by fathers in custody, visitation rights, and equal treatment for child support. Fathers also have rights to claim paternity, object to third-party adoptions, decision-making in their child’s life, and maintain a relationship with the child. A father’s rights attorney can represent a father to make sure they get fair representation in family court.

How Can a Father Get Joint Custody?

Child custody can be decided by the parents in a divorce or separation. In an ideal situation, the parents can come up with their own custody and visitation plan that works for both and is in the best interests of the child. In child custody disputes, the court may have to decide legal matters. Custody can include physical custody and legal custody. If a father has joint physical and legal custody, the father can spend substantial time living with the children and can make legal decisions for the child, including decisions about education, healthcare, and religion.

Can the Mother Deny Visitation?

If parents have a child custody order and visitation schedule, one parent can’t unilaterally decide not to follow the visitation order. If a parent wants to deny visitation, they must go to the court and get a modification for the child custody and visitation order. If the other parent refuses visitation, you can take the case to enforce the child custody orders.

Can I Visit My Child If I’m Late on Child Support?

Child support orders and child visitation orders are separate. If you are behind in your child support, the other parent can’t refuse your valid visitation without a change in the court order. It is important to make sure the other parent is following the child custody schedule so you can spend quality time with your child.

How Can I Enforce Child Support in Wisconsin?

Child support is generally based on Wisconsin child support guidelines. The guidelines take into account factors including income, parenting time, other child support, and the needs of the child. In some cases, the child’s mother may owe child support to the father. If the mother fails to make child support payments on time, you can talk to your family law attorney about how to enforce child support so you can provide for your child.

Can I Keep My Child Away From Their Mother?

If you believe allowing the child to stay with the mother puts the child’s life in danger, you can go to the court to modify the child custody orders. Courts will generally prefer the child to spend time with both parents. However, the court may limit visitation or custody if there is suspicion the child is in an unsafe environment, has been abused, or there is domestic violence in the household. In some cases, a father can petition the court to terminate parental rights for the mother, which would allow the child to be adopted by a stepparent.

How Do I Establish I’m the Father?

If a mother is denying you are the father or trying to prevent you from having contact with your child, you can establish paternity through the courts. The mother or father can petition the court to determine paternity. A genetic test can be used to establish paternity, giving parental rights to the father. Contact a father’s rights lawyer for legal advice in Wisconsin custody battles.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances – such as being charged with a crime – where you should always seek experienced legal help.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It’s important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice’s billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Father's Rights Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who’ve been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer’s experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It’s a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
