Fathers' Rights

Burbank Fathers' Rights Lawyer

Why It Is Important to Establish Paternity

Establishing paternity provides legal security for a father when it comes to their relationship with their child. Fathers who do not establish paternity could experience serious difficulties in the future regarding visitation, child custody, and child support. California Family Court will not recognize you as your child's legal parent or grant you any rights if you have not established paternity first. Anyone looking to establish paternity in the Burbank area can benefit greatly from retaining a Burbank family lawyer from Cutter & Lax, Attorneys at Law. Our firm can help you establish paternity and fight for your fathers' rights.

Your Rights as a Father

In the past, fathers had a disadvantage when it came to family law and their children. Mothers were shown preference in cases of custody and child support, while fathers struggled to win fair visitation rights. Today, our society has come to realized that mothers and fathers are equally important in the lives of children and have equal rights to custody, support, and visitation. Family courts focus on the best interests of the child when making decisions and will consider both parents equally and fairly based on their relationship with the child, their income, their capacity to care for the child, and other such factors. Hiring a family lawyer ensures that you have a strong advocate to argue your case and fight for court orders that are fair and just.
