We See The Big Picture In Family Law

Helping Fathers Fight For Child Custody Rights

When a man is involved in a family law battle, specifically in a case involving his children and his rights as a father, he may face an uphill battle. Minnesota family law courts have historically been biased in favor of mothers. While the landscape of Minnesota law may be changing, in many situations, fathers still require aggressive advocacy in divorce proceedings.

Your rights as a father are vitally important, and our fathers’ rights lawyer, Todd Dwire, recognizes that. At Dwire Law Offices, we offer supportive, experienced and effective legal services to fathers involved in various divorce and paternity cases in Apple Valley, Burnsville, Eagan, Lakeville, Prior Lake, Savage and Shakopee.

Understanding Fathers’ Rights In Minnesota

As a father, you want to spend as much quality time with your child (or children) as possible. Whether through child custody or parenting time agreements, our Lakeville fathers’ rights lawyer will help you achieve a schedule that makes sense for you and your child. Men who come to our law office know that their interests as well as the interests of their children will be protected throughout the divorce process. In paternity cases, this may involve DNA tests.

Child support is determined by mandatory state guidelines. If you are a noncustodial parent and will be paying child support, our attorney can ensure that the support payments are determined fairly. Similarly, our attorney can also ensure that alimony is determined in a fair manner.

While fathers’ rights have improved, judges and guidelines can still be biased toward mothers. With knowledgeable legal counsel, you can feel confident that your rights and best interests as a father are protected. You can avoid making the common mistakes fathers make.
