One of the major consequences of divorce is its impact on the relationship dynamic between a parent and child. Transitioning from a single household to two separate households affects a parent's ability to care for his or her child. The amount of time a parent can spend with his or her child may be limited by a parenting time agreement. Fathers have found it increasingly difficult to get enough time to spend with their children. At Lana Panagoulia Law, PLLC, we are committed to protecting a father's rights to raise his children.
Attorney Lana Panagoulia has experience practicing divorce law in all areas, including fathers' rights. To learn more about parental rights of fathers, contact an experienced Ann Arbor lawyer at 734-769-5262.
Attorney Helping Fathers Fight Child Custody Disputes in Washtenaw County
In Michigan, a court will use the best interest of the child standard to determine custody and visitation. Although a father may meet several best interest factors, he may still find himself on the losing end of a child custody dispute. Fathers have the same rights as mothers to raise their children, so it is important that their rights are equally protected.
We believe that it is important for a child to have a meaningful relationship with his or her parents, because it is crucial for his or her growth and development. We strive to help fathers maximize the amount of time they can spend with their kids, so that the kids will have the opportunity to grow up under the guidance of two parents. Our firm can help fathers obtain custody of their children or arrange for a parenting time schedule that is specifically tailored to meet their needs. If the mother is not honoring the parenting time agreement, we help fathers present this information to a court.
Fathers Contesting Child Support
We also assist fathers with modifying their child support if there is a change in circumstances. If a visitation agreement allows for a father to spend more time with his child, the court may reduce the amount of child support owed by the father. Child support payments may also be reduced if the father is laid off from his job. Our firm also assists fathers who want to contest paying any amount of child support if paternity is at issue.
