Fathers’ Rights: Protecting the Rights of Fathers

As of January 2013, a new law in Arizona now recognizes the equal parenting rights for fathers who are going through a separation, divorce, or unmarried fathers who want equal custody.  Mothers no longer receive favorable treatment over fathers in custody cases, whether married or not.  Both mother and father are viewed equal in the eyes of the law and either may qualify for primary custody of a child.

Arizona law places a duty on father and mother alike with legally protected parenting rights and responsibilities.  The same custody laws apply to soon-to-be fathers and mothers.  These rights and responsibilities may include:

Fathers or soon-to-be fathers are as entitled to these legal rights pertaining to children, as are mothers.  If you are a father or soon-to-be one and have concerns about your legal rights and responsibilities in fatherhood, contact our offices at (602) 254-8880 for a free consultation and legal expertise to protect your parenting rights. We have successfully handled Fathers rights cases in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert, Tempe, Glendale, and all across the State of Arizona.

What are Fathers Rights in Arizona?

Family laws applied in Phoenix and throughout the State of Arizona may pose challenges to fathers seeking to protect their parenting rights, or gain joint child custody.  Cantor Law Group divorce lawyers are knowledgeable on the obstacles faced by fathers, such as:

  • parental alienation when partners or spouses may attempt to reduce a fathers’ rights to child access and parenting time
  • prior divorce settlement instruction resulting in excessive spouse alimony/support and/or child support payments

Prior divorce settlement agreements can be legally modified to give fathers fair treatment.  Our divorce lawyers are experienced in divorce settlements and successful modifications.  If you are a divorced father or currently experiencing divorce, and require proven legal representation for protection of your rights, get in touch with us for assistance.

If you are in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Tempe, or anywhere within Arizona, contact one of our fathers’ rights attorneys here at the Cantor Law Group for professional and confidential advice on parenting rights.  Our initial consultation is free-of-charge and may help you receive the information and advocacy you need to uphold your rights as a father. Please give us a call at (602) 254-8880 to schedule a free consultation.
