Fathers' Rights Lawyer in Batavia, IL

Divorce Attorney Protecting Fathers' Rights

As a father, you have rights of your own. If you are experiencing problems with child support, custody, visitation rights or other issues involving divorce, please contact my law firm. If you are experiencing feelings of confusion, frustration or anger because of a divorce or separation from your child's mother, you may be able to seek assistance from a Batavia divorce attorney. Common complaints I have dealt with are that the father works so many hours in order to provide child support that he does not have time to see his children and that the father does not receive enough if any, visitation or custody rights.

In some cases, it is in the child's best interest for the father to have custody of the child or children, but the mother receives it instead. The "best interests of the child" are considered by factors such as:

  • The affection and emotional connection between the parental parties and the child
  • The ability of the parental parties to give the child the love and education necessary
  • The permanence of the home
  • The mental and physical health of the parents
  • Domestic violence cases or threats
  • The preference of the child

In order to receive custody, location, domestic history, and relationships are of greatest value.

Representing Husbands and Fathers

Custody is not appropriate for every father, but each and every father should have equal opportunity to receive custody. It is my goal to see this through. Over the past years, opportunities for fathers to take a bigger role in parenting has increased because more women are entering the workforce and providing more and more of the family's income. My firm is available to help develop a strong strategy for litigation that is best suited to the emotional and physical needs of fathers and husbands that are experiencing a difficult circumstance.

My goal is to set up a plan of attack for each individual that is personal and specific because cookie-cutter plans rarely bring successful results. Areas of family law that need adequate legal supervision for men are divorce or separation, fathers' rights, alimony, child support and custody, modification, visitation rights, and property division.

It is my desire to support your personal and familial rights from your own angle and in the process, bring about a positive resolution. People have responded favorably to my work and women even refer me to the men in their lives, such as sons, brothers, and new mates, as an experienced divorce attorney who will fight for the rightful privileges that govern being a husband, whether current or former, and a father.
