is ca a mother or father state?

Father with childThough it may seem like the system is biased towards mothers, this is not lawful. The law is neutral and unbiased, however, a judge may refuse to follow this law and try to give the mother preference. However, the trial court judge does not have the final word on custody issues. If a court in California has treated you this way, you have family law appellate rights.

Children deserve to spend time with both parents. Without a father, they will be lacking essential life lessons and it will be your children who suffer the most in the end. By utilizing a fathers' rights attorney, you can effectively demonstrate the reasoning and need for your children to have equal custody or parenting time with you. If you feel that the children’s mother is not fit to be a custodial parent, you can also take legal action to rectify this. Whether you need a modification order or want to pursue legal action against the mother, it is essential that you are backed by an experienced lawyer.

Importance of Fathers

Fathers play an extremely important role in child development. Studies show that children that have a relationship with their father are less likely to:

  • Be impoverished
  • Have behavioral problems
  • Go to prison
  • Drop out of high school
  • Commit a crime

At the Law Office of Michael R. Young, we will zealously advocate your rights to be part of your child’s upbringing.

Fathers Rights & Joint custody in ca

California state law urges judges to award joint custody when it is possible, as children should be given the maximum contact possible with each parent. In general, the state holds the position that the interests of the child are best served by maintaining relationships with both parents. Our lawyers are in agreement with the state, and we strive to ensure that no parent is denied access to his or her children because of superficial presumptions based on gender. Our fathers' rights advocates are prepared to work tirelessly to prove your case, both in negotiations and in court.
