Fathers’ Rights

Protecting the rights of fathers

The law in Arizona now recognizes the equal rights of fathers during separation and divorce.  Mothers no longer receive favorable treatment over fathers in custody cases, whether married or not.  Both mother and father are viewed equal in the eyes of the law and either may qualify for primary custody of a child.

The law places a duty on father and mother alike with legally protected parenting rights and responsibilities.  The same laws apply to soon-to-be fathers and mothers.  These rights and responsibilities may include:

  • time for parenting of child or children
  • child custody
  • adoption notification
  • child financial support

Fathers or soon-to-be fathers are as entitled to these legal rights pertaining to children, as are mothers.  If you are a father or soon-to-be one and have concerns about your legal rights and responsibilities in fatherhood, contact our Scottsdale divorce attorney for a free consultation and legal expertise to protect your parenting rights.
