Fathers’ Rights Lawyer in Hingham, MA

 

Protecting Parental Rights throughout Plymouth County

Today, mothers and fathers have equal rights in family law cases, but it wasn’t always like that. Historically, fathers have been less likely to enjoy equal access or custody of their children. Though courts have removed that gender bias from our laws, it may still linger in the court system and affect a father’s innate parental rights.

At Sawin Law, P.C., we are committed to fighting for fathers throughout Plymouth County and protecting their rights. Our fathers’ rights lawyer in Hingham handles all types of cases, including paternity, custody, visitation, and child support.

See how we can help you by calling (781) 713-1212 or contacting us online.

Paternity

If you have a child out of wedlock, the mother is automatically granted sole legal and physical custody until you establish paternity. Establishing paternity may require the father to undergo DNA testing to prove his parentage. Once paternity has been confirmed, you will have equal access to your child and can create a custody order and parenting plan.

Some of the many benefits of establishing paternity include:

  • The child receives financial support from both parents, and mothers receive the support they need to raise their child
  • Biological/legal fathers can exercise their parental rights and enjoy custody/visitation time with their children
  • Children enjoy a relationship with both parents as well as extended family members
  • Children will be eligible to receive inheritances from both parents
  • Children will know their family’s medical history

Our fathers’ rights lawyer in Hingham has extensive experience representing both alleged fathers and mothers in paternity cases.

Child Custody & Child Support for Fathers

Judges have broad discretion when determining custody. As long as you have been established as the child’s biological/legal father, you should have an equal right to custody of your child as the mother. If the child’s mother is an unfit parent, you may even be granted sole custody.

The same principles apply to child support determinations. If the child’s mother has sole custody, the courts may require you, the father, to pay child support. We can make sure you do not overpay (or under-receive, if you have sole custody) child support.

At Sawin Law, P.C., our goal is to present your case effectively to the judge to ensure that your parental rights are not violated simply because of your gender. We are prepared to stand up and fight for you no matter how challenging the case may seem.

Chris and his staff made it easy and effortless for me.

I was going through a pretty ugly custody battle. The process is hard enough to navigate but with the times being what they are in 2020 I couldn't imagine going through this without Chris's help. I ended up with custody of my son and pretty much everything we were asking for. Chris and his staff made it easy and effortless for me. From one Marine to another, Semper Fi brother and thank you for all you've done.

Chris is a rare find.

I have known Chris for quite some time and am consistently impressed by his character and professionalism. I see Chris every Tuesday for a networking group and each week he has another success story for helping someone get what they're owed. Chris helps run the networking group and if his punctuality, willingness to go the extra mile, and attention to detail he displays as NRBA's VP is any indication of his professional practice, Chris is a rare find.
