Getting Child Custody for Fathers in North Carolina

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.
