Fathers’ rights in California refer to fathers who want to maintain a relationship with their children in a paternity or divorce matter. Typically, equitable child custody and shared parenting for fathers is the primary goal in a father’s rights case. This is the absolute opposite of the “deadbeat dad” who ignores his children, and pays no child support after separation from the biological mother of his child.
At the Law Offices of Richard K. Isles, our objective is to support the role of fathers wishing tomaintain a healthy relationship with their children or gain custody of their child. Generally, fathers are seeking rights for the following reasons:
- Emotional development of the child
- Asserting equal rights as a father as the custodial parent
- Successful management of child’s behavior
- Awareness of medical issues relating to child
- Involvement in decision-making relating to child
- Avoidance of parental alienation syndrome
- Enabling a stable and structured family environment
- Continuous fathering of child
In the Family Law Court system, a father has the right to be involved in his child’s life when there is no abuse or orders to say otherwise. Today’s breakthroughs relating to fathers’ rights give more equality to fathers who have children, whereas decades ago mothers were typically the primary custodial parent when children were separated from parents in dissolution actions. Times have changed and men are home more often, involved in day in and day out activities including homework, medical appointments, school and sports.
