Your Mothers’ Rights Lawyer
Mothers have the same rights to allocation of significant decision-making responsibilities (custody) and parenting time that fathers do. However, while mothers frequently are seen as given preferential treatment by the courts, that’s not the case.
Your rights require protection if the father fights and claims that he should have an allocation of decision-making responsibility for the children, even if you have been the primary caretaker for your children in the past.
If you are concerned about your rights as a working mother or as a single mother during or after a divorce, it is important to address these concerns. It is critical to make a plan with an experienced lawyer who is familiar with representing both mothers’ and fathers’ rights.
