Father's Rights

Phoenix Father’s Rights Attorney

We Can Help Protect Your Rights to Your Children

During a divorce, oftentimes a father’s top priority lies with maintaining his rights to his children. If you are a father, unmarried father or a father-to-be, you are entitled to certain rights pertaining to your children. In Arizona, the law no longer gives favorable treatment to mothers in child custody cases. In accordance with an amendment to custody law implemented in January 2013, both parents are now given equal consideration in determining custody – now known as legal decision making .

At Arizona Family Law Attorneys, we can help ensure that your rights to your children are protected in the event of a divorce or separation if married. Named Attorney of the Year for the East Valley for 2010-2011 by the Family Lawyers Assistance Project (FLAP) and Avvo Clients’ Choice, Phoenix Divorce Lawyer Shawnna Riggers is intricately familiar with the legal system and can provide you with excellent guidance aimed at maintaining your father’s rights.

What Are Father’s Rights?

Simply put, the term “father’s rights” refers to a father’s privilege and responsibilities to maintain an active presence and support role in the life of his children. These rights can be restricted, however, if the father has a history of inappropriate behavior or if it is deemed that his presence would be harmful to his children.

Father’s rights can include:

It is not uncommon for a father to be alienated from his children following a divorce or separation.
