Rhode Island Fathers' Rights Attorney

How can I protect my rights as a father?

After a divorce, you may feel like your rights as a father are minimal, or that your ex-wife will automatically be granted child custody. Unfortunately and especially in the past, mothers have sometimes received preferential treatment in our court systems when it comes to who will keep the children in their home.

But all family courts are now instructed to place the well-being of the child above any other consideration, and neither parent will automatically be granted certain rights. If you have recently divorced or want to renegotiate your visitation rights, speak to a lawyer to go over your legal options.

How I Can Assist You

The Law Office of Patricia A. Sullivan is here to protect your rights as a father. I have over 30 years of experience practicing law and I genuinely care about your family and its long-term health. It is essential that you can communicate openly with your attorney in a way that allows you to be comfortable. I take care of clients every year, making sure to be responsive and available during this difficult time in their lives.

If the father is not granted custody of the children after a divorce, it is common for him to be required to pay child support. You will want to make sure that your child support settlement is a reasonable amount and your visitation rights are protected. Even if you are not seeking full custody, your visitation schedule determines how often you will see your children, and you deserve to have that opportunity protected. The best thing you can do for your children is to demonstrate how they will benefit from your continued presence in their lives.
