Father As The Custodial Parent

Fathers' Rights Attorney in Riverside: Child Custody Issues

If you were going through a divorce in the 1970s and were a father, custody would likely have been granted to the mother. However, as time went on, fathers were heard in court and the term fathers' rights became a well-known phrase in the divorce field. At the Law Offices of Richard K. Isles, our fathers' rights lawyers in Riverside handle all types of child custody issues. Whether you are a father or a mother, it is important to remember that the court will act in what it believes to be the best interests of the child.

Ensuring Custody Decisions Are Given a Fair Shake

In the last 10 years fathers' rights have blown up to the point where mediators and judges in Riverside and San Bernardino courts have focused on these rights, as well father's roles in their children's lives. With mothers receiving a full education and moving up corporate ladders as men only once did, stay-at-home dads are more common. We see fathers who are accustomed to raising their children while the mother is working or doing what she believes to be in her best interest, although this might not be in the child's best interest.

There are times when a mother abandons the children and the family home, leaving the father with the children day and night. In some cases, the mother may be struggling with addiction issues. In these cases, our California family law lawyers will fight to ensure that the father is given adequate consideration concerning custody. Sole custody may be one option, or supervised visitation may be another. In every case, we will work with the best interests of the child in mind at all times.

Working to Successfully Resolve Custody Disputes

Not every case will warrant full custody to the father or the mother in divorce or paternity actions. Decisions are made on a case-by-case basis and will depend on the unique situation, the lifestyle of the parents, work schedules and a mediator's report. A mediator's report is not set in stone and the legal team at the Law Offices of Richard K. Isles has extensive experience litigating all issues in the local courts.
