Nassau County Mothers’ Rights Attorney

Protect Your Rights As A Mother: (516) 252-0223

As family laws continue to develop, a mother’s rights are not given as much priority as they once were. In recent years, mothers are required to fight tenaciously in order to achieve favorable divorce settlements and custody agreements. As a result of the fathers’ rights movement, courts no longer grant full child support and child custody to mothers by default. In addition, this movement has made it more challenging for mothers’ to receive enough spousal support and child support to meet basic needs. Due to these recent developments, it is crucial to obtain the services of a qualified family law attorney who can help you fight for your rights as a mother. Anthony J. LoPresti, Attorney at Law is here to help you succeed. Our Nassau County family law attorney would be proud to inform you of your rights and help you protect them.

Do You Have Questions About Your Rights?

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Questions

  • As A Mother, What Rights Do I Have?

    Answer

    Unfortunately, there are no set rules regarding parenting time in custody. While there is a presumption in favor of joint legal custody and meaningful parenting time with both parents, the outcome of your case will be based on what is in the best interests of your child. When making initial custody determinations, case law requires family court judges to take a number of factors into consideration. Family court can be complex and confusing. As such, it is vital that you consult with a highly reputable family law attorney.

  • What Are The Benefits Of Establishing Paternity?

    Answer

    If you are an unmarried mother, we encourage you to collect child support from the father of your child. In order to do so, you must file a court petition to establish paternity. The court will send a blood test to the alleged father in order to ensure it matches that of your child. Once the court has determined the identity of the biological father, you may require him to pay child support. In addition, you may require him to pay for the child’s medical insurance.

  • Why Do I Need To Hire A Mothers’ Rights Attorney?

    Answer

    While you may believe that you and your partner/spouse/ex can come up with an amicable solution, this is often not the case. A family law attorney from our firm can help you navigate through the various issues that may arise. Due to the serious nature of your case, we advise you against navigating the legal system alone.
