Helping Fathers With Custody and Parenting Time Matters
One of the biggest issues following a divorce is the question of child custody. Although the court is interested in having both parents be a part of their children’s lives, there can be a bias toward granting most custody rights to the mother. The attorneys at our Provo child custody law firm will always work with the best interests of the child in mind. If it is better for the father to be granted most, if not all, custody rights, we will work tirelessly to prove this to the court.
Regardless of which parent is granted custody, the noncustodial parent will almost always have, at a minimum, the right to parent-time, sometimes known as visitation. We fight to ensure that the noncustodial parent, either father or mother, has these rights enforced so that he or she may continue to be involved in the life of his or her child.
Helping Make Sense of Custody Terms
There are a lot of misconceptions regarding the definition of custody and what it entails. A parent may have legal custody, which gives the parent the right to make decisions concerning the child’s upbringing in regard to education and religion, amongst other choices. Physical custody refers to where the child is considered to reside. Joint custody can be granted to both parents, but this does not necessarily mean that the time spent with the child will be split equally.
Our Utah divorce lawyers can help explain in-depth the different types of custody available, as well as fathers’ rights and mothers’ rights in regard to parenting time and child support. We can also handle other matters related to divorce, such as property division, qualified domestic relations orders and alimony (spousal support).
