Centennial Fathers’ Rights Lawyer

Have your rights as a father been compromised?

The Fathers’ Rights Movement is growing all across the country. Today, courts are focusing more on the wellbeing and best interests of the child, and strive to arrange shared custody in a way that encourages both parents to maintain strong relationships with the child.

The attorneys at Jones Law Firm, PC in Centennial are committed to protecting your paternal rights. As a father, you should never have to feel like a visitor in your child’s life.

How have courts changed in determining child custody?

The Colorado state code § 14-10-124 speaks about how to determine child custody. These laws were put in place so that the courts would practice gender neutrality and realize that fathers, just as much as mothers, have an equal right to seek residential custody.

The courts will:

Act in a way that they consider to be in the best interests of the children involved

Examine who previously was the primary caregiver

Examine who is more emotionally and financially stable

Although the state of Colorado professes to be gender-blind in regard to parental rights, fathers still need to know the facts on fathers’ rights issues and have the support of an aggressive and competent Centennial family attorney. If you find yourself in the unfortunate and unpleasant situation of having to fight for your natural parental rights, we can help. Read some helpful tips for fathers in child custody disputes in this related article.

Over the years our firm has stood up for the rights of fathers time and time again. Check out our past cases!

Why Are Fathers Important?

Though courts used to favor mothers in custody hearings, that’s no longer the case. More and more often, courts are recognizing the important role a father plays in his child’s life. Children that grow up without having a relationship with their father are more likely to struggle with:

Poverty

Behavioral issues

Criminal activity

Teenage pregnancy

Drug and alcohol abuse

If you want custody of your children, you’re within your rights. If it’s in their best interest to have a relationship with you, then you may have a case – which is why it’s so important for you to seek legal guidance.

Parenting today is a team effort; it requires time, responsibility and effort from both parents. It is no longer acceptable to just assume that the mother is the fit parent for the child based on her gender-specific role.

There are many valid reasons why a child custody order may need to be changed. Often, child custody orders are modified because the child’s needs or activities change, because of a job change, a new spouse, a relocation, an illness or a disability. Sometimes,…

Can Workers’ Compensation Be Taken for Child Support?

Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. Meaning, if a worker is injured in a workplace accident or if they become sick with an occupational disease, the worker can file a workers’ compensation claim regardless of their own degree of fault. While workers’ compensation covers medical care and provides monthly benefits to the injured worker, it does not compensate the individual for 100% of their pay prior to their injury.
