Custody, Visitation And Decision-Making

You deserve to be a part of your child’s life. As a father, you play an important role in raising your child. Ms. McNelis will make sure that the court establishes your parental rights that include:

  • Custody: It’s rare that a divorced or unmarried father gets sole custody of a child. However, this may happen if the mother proves to be unfit, resulting in a court order from a judge.
  • Shared custody: Equal parenting time with the child’s mother can be proven beneficial for the child.
  • Visitation: You want to play a significant role in your child’s upbringing, and it’s crucial that you maintain regular visitation.
  • Decision-making: This may include decisions related to health and education.

A skilled attorney who understands the issue of fathers’ rights will prove to be your best advocate. You want to remain relevant in your child’s life. Ms. McNelis and her team are committed to getting results.
