Poughkeepsie Divorce & Child Custody Lawyers
“Oh my God I am going to lose my kids”
Going back to the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s the court did follow a theory that it was in the best interest of the children to be with their Mother. Through the 1990’s and early 2000’s there has been a shift in courts away from this misplaced theory to understand that it is in the best interest of children to have a substantial and meaningful relationship with both parents. I have often consulted with distraught clients who are either divorced or breaking up with significant other who exclaim “Men are never going to get a fair day in court” and feel they will never see their kids again
Having won custody and substantial visitation rights for many of my male clients, I can tell you this is no longer the case. If you have the time to spend with your children, in the majority of the cases I will be able to draft a custodial access schedule to meet the needs of the children to spend the quality time they want with their father.
Father’s do not give up on your children just because you think you can’t win.
Please call me for a free consultation to discuss the exact details of your case.
