Fathers' Rights Attorney in Syracuse, New York
Many fathers enter the divorce process fully expecting to get a raw deal when it comes to child custody and visitation. The good news is that courts are increasingly willing to consider creative custody and visitation solutions that provide a father with more time with his children.
I am Laurin Haddad, a family law attorney with extensive experience in child custody and visitation matters. I am creative in my approach to developing alternative custody and visitation arrangements and disciplined in defending my clients' rights.
At my practice, I represent fathers as well as mothers in matters involving:
- Child custody
- Visitation rights and parenting time
- Modifications in custody and visitation
- Child relocations
- Termination of parental rights
- And other custody and visitation matters
Call 866-986-4862 toll free or send me an e-mail to arrange for a consultation. I have experience working on both sides of several issues. I will use the knowledge gained from all of my experience and knowledge to protect your needs, whatever side of the issue you are on.
Asserting and Protecting Your Rights as a Father
The overriding principle in custody and visitation matters has always been what is in "the best interest of the child". In the past, this often meant joint legal custody, primary physical custody for the mother and visitation time for the father.
These days, courts are open to arrangements that accommodate flexible working schedules, the career demands of working fathers and mothers, and the specific needs of the children. Possible solutions can include shared or equal physical custody (for example, alternating weeks with each parent), extended visitation time around holidays and in the summer months, sole custody for one parent, even to the father, and many other possibilities.
I will work closely with you to understand your relationship with your children, your working situation, your former spouse's work situation and other relevant factors. I will then work to develop a plan designed to achieve custody and visitation solution that is workable, achievable and which enables you to enjoy a meaningful parental relationship with your children.
Negotiation or Litigation?
I can often achieve an acceptable and workable solution through negotiation. Negotiated arrangements can often be achieved at a lower emotional and financial cost than a litigated outcome. If necessary however, I will go to trial and work energetically to achieve your goals, while protecting your rights at all stages of the legal process.
