Fathers' Rights Attorney in Rancho Cucamonga

Protecting Fathers' Rights in Custody, Paternity & Support Cases

If you are a father who is separating from your child's mother or obtaining a divorce, you have specific rights to your children. When it comes to child custody cases, California no longer favors the mother automatically, even when the children are younger. Instead, the family courts consider all relevant factors and make a decision based on what is in the best interests of the children.

At The Law Office of Beverly W. Quinn, we have 47 years of legal experience to offer you. We know the laws, we know your rights, and we know what legal strategies protect them. Today's fathers are more hands-on than they used to be, and more mothers are in the workforce than they were in earlier generations. With the changes in our society, family dynamics have changed and fathers' relationships with their children need to be protected.

Fathers choose our family law firm because:

  • We offer free, confidential consultations.
  • Our founding attorney is a certified family law specialist.
  • We are multilingual attorneys.

What are your rights?

If you were married to your child's mother, paternity is automatic so if you are fighting for custody of your children in a divorce, know that the courts no longer assume that a mother will get custody. If you were never married to your child's mother, you face different challenges.

If you are an unmarried father, paternity must be established legally. Even if you can prove that you are the child's biological father, if you were never married to the child's mother, you won't legally have any rights or responsibilities for your child unless paternity is established legally.

Establishing paternity is necessary for:

Once paternity is established by the court, you will have all of the rights and responsibilities of a parent. This means you can request child custody and visitation orders so you can legally visit with your son or daughter. You will also be responsible for paying child support and you will have to pay towards your children's uninsured healthcare expenses.
