Father's rights in Pennsylvania

When fathers call our office with questions about their rights in custody disputes, we stress that they have at least a 50% custodial right under Pennsylvania state law. We encourage fathers to determine what they want in a custody agreement, and then go for shared legal custody. It is widely accepted among family development professionals that shared custody arrangements benefit the children of divorced parents. We refer fathers to informational resources that shed light on their legal rights and the developmental needs of their children.

What can I do to have an active, routine involvement in my child's life?

Now is the time to speak out and protect your priceless right to be a continuing, integral part of your children's lives. Do not get into that mindset of "she lets me see the kids every other weekend" or be defined as the every other weekend father.

In today's society there are an increasing number of dads who are the "Mr. Moms" and primary caregivers of their children. If this may be you, then you are one of the growing number of fathers who should and could have primary custody of your children. We vigorously advocate fathers' rights when the circumstance strongly indicates that it is in the best interest of a child that the father has a primary role in his children's lives.

If you are and have been involved in your child's life and activities, you must have your voice heard now. Waiting oftentimes results in limiting your rights by prematurely establishing a "status quo" of time spent with your child at the beginning of your separation which defines how much time you will have with your children at the end of litigation or negotiation.

Sweeney Law Offices will provide you with essential information and critical legal guidance you need to preserve your relationship with your children and to ease the trauma that divorce inevitably inflicts on them.

If you are concerned about an impending child custody matter, stay in the home and call an experienced father's rights lawyer like Mildred B. Sweeney at 724-390-4464 or 866-540-4180 Toll Free today. It is important to maintain your relationship with your children while you work toward an effective custody agreement. If you have questions about your rights in a custody, visitation, or paternity matter, contact an experienced Pittsburgh fathers' rights attorney via email.
