Protecting The Rights Of North Carolina Dads In Divorce
Fathers, whether married or unmarried, have both rights and obligations in divorce and child custody matters. A father has rights to custody, visitation and time with his or her child absent circumstances such as domestic abuse or violence. A father’s obligations include child support and financial support. Hiring a North Carolina family law lawyer who will advocate for fathers’ rights is very important for anyone in divorce.
At Daly Mills Family Law all of our attorneys aggressively fight for fathers’ rights. We know that the bond between father and child is an important one that deserves to be protected in divorce and child custody proceedings.
Rights of Unmarried Fathers
Our lawyers are selective in the number of clients we work with so that we can truly get to know you and your family. We will aggressively advocate for fathers’ rights in matters such as:
- Establishing paternity
- Child custody
- Child support
- Post-divorce modification
- Military divorce
- Alimony and spousal support
North Carolina law makes no distinction between married and unmarried fathers in their rights to visitation and child custody. The law also doesn’t allow your ex-spouse to withhold visitation time with your child due to your inability to make child support payments. It’s important to consult with our family law attorneys if your rights to see your children are infringed upon.
Our attorneys help clients who are active or retired military service members living in North Carolina. We understand the unique challenges in a military divorce and spend the time necessary to learn about our client’s individual needs during a divorce. We also handle complex international child custody disputes if your ex-spouse has threatened to or has taken your child out of the state or out of the country without your permission.
