Sussex County Fathers' Rights Lawyers

Fathers have been given the short end of the stick when it comes to child custody and visitation in New Jersey divorce cases traditionally. However, laws have changed, and with the right lawyer, the judge in your case can be convinced of your equal, if not better, claim to custody and time with your child.

Is your child's mother trying to minimize the amount of time you will be able to spend with your kids after divorce? Is she going for full custody? Fathers have rights, and our Newton-based attorneys work with fathers in Sussex County and throughout North Jersey to defend their rights and fight for their children's best interests.

Fathers Are Important To Children's Development

Kids need positive male and female parental figures. At Morris, Downing & Sherred, LLP, we work for fairness, and we fight for children's best interests. Mothers no longer win custody cases by default. When we represent fathers in custody and visitation cases, we remove gender from the equation. Fathers and mothers both serve crucial needs for children, but one is not more important than the other.

We help committed fathers succeed in many challenging situations, including:

  • Parental alienation (mother drives a wedge between father and child)
  • Paternity challenges
  • Unfit mother (substance abuse, criminal record or abusive behavior)
  • False accusations of child abuse or domestic violence
  • Child support disputes

Tough Advocates For Fathers' Rights

Our attorneys are compassionate advisers, but they battle in the trenches on your behalf. You can count on our attorneys to know the strategies and the tactics of the opposing party and how to counter them. We know how important your child is to you, and we will leverage our experience and considerable resources for your best possible outcome.
