Sometimes, in our society, fathers can get a bad rap. And, as a seasoned family law lawyer, I’ve seen it many, many times over the years where good dads suffer with the reputation of the bad.
But, all of this can be avoided, if the father truly wants it to be, by simply standing up for his rights!
Do Fathers Have the Same Custody Rights as Mothers in Sacramento?
You would think that this is a question that doesn’t need answering, being that a father and a mother should have equal rights to a child that they both brought into the world. All the child knows is who their mother is and who their father is, and loves them both the same. That is, until one parent talks bad about the other and paints a negative picture that makes that child or children favor them instead of their spouse!
As an experienced family law lawyer in Sacramento, I have seen it go both ways – a mom bad-mouthing a dad and vice versa. But, you should know that none of what your spouse says about you matters under the law, and it’s just to intimidate you into not standing up for what you truly have rights for.
According to literature released by Custody X Change (a site that provides a trusted online tool that parents who share custody use all the time for parenting schedules), this type of intimidation is exactly what happens to lots of fathers, mainly because that dad actually will go into court with the negative expectation that nothing he does will really matter, and that the court will take his ex-wife’s side anyway, simply because she’s the mother.
