Confidential. No Obligation.
I will always be grateful to my provider attorney. Thanks to his dedication, determination and professionalism, I now have custody and legal rights over my daughter's well-being.
I have received more support from my provider attorney than I have from our system here in Mobile in about 3 years. I appreciate all that has been done for me. Thank you all.
What a unique and creative way to work with an attorney. I was expecting to spend a few thousand dollars, but instead I got the paperwork I needed done for a few hundred and handled the rest myself.
Fathers Rights - Family Law
Many people assume that mothers have more rights to their children - particularly custody rights - than fathers.
This presumption is incorrect.
While it is a common stereotype, no state grants a presumption of the right to custody to mothers. All courts look at what is in the best interest of the children.
Many Fathers Get Custody of their Child
Sometimes, in fact, granting the mother primary custody is not in the best interest of the children at all. Some fathers will actually have a custody advantage, such as where the mother has a history of drug abuse, where the children have extremely strong emotional attachments to their father, and where the mother may be standing in the way of a healthy relationship between the father and the children, just to name a few. In most cases, the law dictates that the parents start on equal footing when it comes to the court's decision regarding custody.
Understanding Parental Rights
Beyond custody, parental rights refers to a parent's right to make decisions for or act on behalf of his or her children. These rights belong to both parents, unless the parent has acted in a way that would harm the child, such that continuing to exercise these rights is no longer in their best interest. Examples of decisions that fall under parental rights include deciding where the children will attend school, the healthcare the children will and will not receive, and the religion the children will practice, as well as spending quality time with the children, regardless of which parent is granted custody.
Defend Your Right to Be a Father to Your Child
All children deserve to enjoy the care of both a mother and a father in their lives. If you are a father who wants primary custody of your children, you should not be deterred from seeking custody by any gender stereotypes that exist or by your presumption that their mother has greater rights than you do.
Moreover, regardless of the ultimate custody arrangement the court orders, you should insist on being involved in the decisions affecting their health, care, and well-being and being able to spend meaningful time with your children. With very few exceptions, this is your right!
Your unbundled attorney can help advise you on what you can do to prepare to make the best argument to the court about why you provide the most safe, stable, and healthy environment for your children, as well as how to move forward to protect your right to be intimately involved in raising your children.
Why Use Unbundled Legal Help™ Services?
Recent studies indicate at least 2⁄3 of people that file in court do not have a lawyer representing them. We all know the importance of hiring an attorney, but the fact is most people "go it alone" because they simply cannot afford one. Typical starting retainers can be as high as $5000 or more.
With Unbundled Legal Help™ Services, we have attorneys that offer unbundled legal services which can significantly reduce the cost of working with an attorney.
When you hire an attorney on an "unbundled" basis, you are billed for fewer hours, which costs you less money.
Instead of hiring an attorney to handle your entire case start to finish, you can hire the attorney to handle specific parts, which "unbundles" these tasks from the parts you can do yourself.
Unbundled legal services is not a good fit for every case. Hiring an attorney for full representation may be what you need, but before you commit to spending thousands of dollars up front, find out if unbundled can work for you.
