When children are involved, get a trusted attorney. The possibility of losing custody of your child is daunting. This time can be especially confusing for fathers. Will a judge assume their mother will take better care of them? What can I do to improve my chances? Could I really lose my child? When custody of your child is in question, seek the counsel of the experienced and professional family law attorneys in Charlotte at Dummit Fradin. We have handled thousands of cases during our 25 years of experience. Needless to say, we have the skills and resources required to protect your rights as a father.
In North Carolina, there is no presumption as to which parent is more fit. Both parents are deemed to be fit and capable of caring for their children. Child custody is determined based on the best interests of the children. Both parents are afforded the opportunity to present to the court why they would be a fit parent. Factors the court considers in making custody determinations include the safety of the children and acts of domestic violence. However, a judge may consider any factor that he or she deems relevant to the best interest of the child.
At Dummit Fradin, we have a long history of fighting for equal rights for our clients, including men in child custody and child support cases. That means we will seek a fair custody arrangement allowing for joint legal and physical custody for fathers. While it may seem like you have an uphill battle, trust in our Charlotte father's rights lawyers to fight for you and make sure your rights are protected.
