Advocating For Fathers’ Rights To Their Children
Public attitudes toward fathers as fit primary caregivers have largely evolved. However, many still tend to view the mother as the most suitable custodian for a child or assume courts will rule in such a way.
At Burbank & Collins, P.S.C., we help fathers in Louisville and central Kentucky to stand up for and exercise their parental rights. We work to make disputes involving the best interests of your children fair and based on the facts, rather than on gender bias.
A Long History Of Asserting Fathers’ Rights
We are not only passionate about asserting the rights for shared parentage; it is a personal topic to our firm. Our firm successfully litigated one of the earliest fathers’ rights cases in Kentucky in the early 1970s. With such a long history of fighting for the rights of fathers, we can bring substantial experience, knowledge and resources to your case.
Focusing Disputes On The Facts, Not Gender Bias
In child custody disputes, the main objective of the court is to do what is in the best interests of the children. Many fathers assume that primary custody will go to the mother. However, the law is clear that both fathers and mothers have equal rights as it concerns their children.
Our goal is to exercise those rights by focusing the dispute on the facts, rather than what is traditionally assumed to be most appropriate. We can address fathers’ rights in a wide array of cases, including:
- Child custody disputes
- Child support orders
- Child relocation requests
- Modification or enforcement of orders
- Parenting-time arrangements
- Paternity disputes
With nearly three decades of experience in working with complex family law issues, lawyer Reneaux Collins understands the complicated nature of fathers’ rights cases. Ms. Collins leverages her unique experience to fight for your rights as a parent. Whether you face a custody dispute or are requesting a modification to a previous order, we will pursue an arrangement that reflects your rights, contributions and involvement in the lives of your children.
