Fathers Have Equal Rights in Syracuse
If your only experience with divorce is that of your parents or a relative, it may be easy to develop some misperceptions about the process. The divorce and child custody process, after all, has changed through the years. For example, one of the biggest misconceptions is that in a divorce when children are involved. Many still believe that mothers are given preference in such circumstances. But fathers have equal rights in Syracuse.
The Reality of It
The reality is while a parent is given preference over a non-parent when a mother and father are involved, neither parent is given preference in New York. Family courts in the state are charged with acting in the best interests of the child. In fact, in matters regarding custody, the courts view access as not a right of the mother or father, but a right of the child.
This means a father can get full custody of a child in New York. If he can show it is in the best interest of the child. This is where the representation of an attorney experienced in Family Law is so critical. This is true whether you are a father or a mother.
