Protecting You & Your Family’s Best InterestsFather with child

Long gone are the days of family courts resolving cases by treating fathers as less important than mothers. Family courts have come far in recognizing the invaluable role a father plays in his child’s life. While you may fear your relationship may be diminished by an unfair bias on the judge’s part, this doesn’t have to be the case. Our fathers’ rights lawyers of the Law Office of Todd K. Bolus, PLLC have the skill and experience to protect your rights as a parent and promote your family’s best interests.

The bond you share with your child is irreplaceable and deserves to be protected with the same ferocity as the relationship between your child and his or her other parent. In fact, decades of study have proven the significance of a father’s role in a child’s life, as those who have a healthy relationship with both parents are reported to excel in various areas of their life.

Establishing Paternity

The most vital aspect of exercising your fathers’ rights is proving your fatherhood. While this may seem unnecessary, it very much is necessary if your name is not on your child’s birth certificate. Marriage establishes the presumption of legal parenthood but if you and your child’s mother are unmarried, paternity must be proven. Once a final paternity judgment is made, you will obtain full financial obligations and will likely embark on the course of determining custody and visitation.

Fathers’ Rights & Custody

Ultimately, the courts strive to protect the child in question. The judge’s primary concern is making the best decisions for your child’s mental, physical, and emotional health. The state of Kentucky awards 3 types of custody: sole, joint, or shared.

The following factors are considered when assigning custody, including but not limited to:

  • The child’s relationship with either parent and siblings
  • The child’s and parents’ mental and physical health
  • Any history of domestic violence
  • Each parent’s ability to care for the child, including financially
