You love your children and want to be there for them. You know you have legal proceedings ahead of you in order to achieve your goals, and this has you worried. It’s easy to believe that courts favor women, and you don’t know what to expect.
At Ken Lawson Law, we understand your concerns. Our attorney is passionate about helping fathers assert their rights and continue to build a relationship with their children.
Understanding Old Biases
For various reasons – whether outdated gender roles or old-fashioned stereotypes – fathers are often seen as unwilling or incapable of adequately caring for their children. The truth is, however, that most fathers can provide their children with the same care, affection and parental guidance that a mother can.
In Tennessee, there is no presumption in the law that a mother is automatically entitled to custody. While some judges are more traditional than others, courts can and do award custody to fathers based on the best interests of the child.
Whether you need to establish paternity or want a better custody arrangement, we can help. We will work with you through every step of the divorce process to ensure that all aspects of the proceedings respect your rights.
