If you are a father who is going through a divorce or considering a divorce, it is crucial that you consult a New York divorce and family law attorney who can protect your rights as a father. In the not too distant past, it was customary that the mother in any divorce would get custody of the child or children. The father would be left with mere visitation rights, if any, and would typically be expected to pay child support and often spousal support as well.
Thankfully, this situation is improving. With the help of fathers and attorneys throughout the U.S., we have seen more instances of custody being awarded to fathers and joint custody agreements that allow both parents to be involved in the upbringing of their child or children.
A father, just like a mother, plays a vital role in raising a child to be happy and healthy in mind and body. By working with a lawyer experienced in defending fathers’ rights, you are taking an active step toward ensuring that you can remain involved in your child’s life. You are also helping to pave the way for other fathers in the future whose rights may be challenged.
At Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C., we firmly believe that fathers’ rights should be protected and upheld in any contested divorce, uncontested divorce or legal separation.

Working with an attorney regarding your divorce is something that will not only benefit you, the father, it is something that will benefit your child or children because they will have a father in their life. This rich relationship that you have with your child should not be terminated because you are going through a divorce. A divorce is the end of your adult relationship with your wife, not the end of your relationship with your children.
