In consideration of the government guidance for COVID-19, our office is moving appointments to virtual settings either through phone or video conferencing. We are still taking consultations and meeting with clients through these methods. If you believe your case requires in-person interaction with an attorney, please call the office and we will work with you on a case-by-case basis to ensure that we comply with required social distancing. Please note that the courts throughout Northern Virginia have announced that with the exception of emergency hearings and protective orders, all court appearances through April 26, 2020 are continued and will be rescheduled when the courts resume operations. It is possible that this date will be further extended. If you have questions about your specific case, please contact the attorney assigned to your case.

Fathers’ Rights Lawyers In Fairfax

Protecting Parental Rights Throughout Northern Virginia

There are many misconceptions that during custody proceedings that all responsibilities will be awarded to the mother of minor children; however, this is not always the case. Fathers have equal rights to the raising of their children and should have a say in their children’s day-to-day lives. At the Law Offices of Michael Kevin Murphy, PLLC, we can help fathers secure a favorable outcome for custody proceedings, divorces, and visitation, and help create a stable future for you and your family.

For most people, dealing with lawyers is difficult. We get that. When a fathers’ rights law matter comes up, powerful emotions often make it even more difficult to deal with, and no one wants to take time off from work or drive a long distance, worrying about traffic and parking, only to sit in a strange law office waiting to meet a lawyer for the first time. We understand that. We found a better way a long ago. Setting up a video teleconference with one of our attorneys, for an initial client consultation or a follow-up, is easy via “Zoom”, “Facetime”, “Cisco Webex”, “Skype”, or other means of video teleconferencing.  Just give us a call or send us an email and we’ll make it happen.  And wear whatever you’d like. We will too.

If you are worried about your rights as a father being taken away, call (703) 721-7640, between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Mondays through Fridays and schedule a consultation with our Fairfax fathers’ rights attorneys today.

Establishing Paternity, Custody & Visitation

There are a few things that can be done to ensure that your rights are protected. Establishing paternity, ensuring that your name is on the birth certificate, and hiring an attorney can all be strong footholds in protecting your parental rights.

Judges of family law cases will work to keep the child’s best interests in mind during a custody battle, but some factors that may influence their decision for custody can include:

  • The ability of each parent to care for the child
  • The child’s wishes
  • Who has custody at the time the custody application is submitted
  • History of domestic violence between the family members
  • The ability to properly care for the child on a day-to-day basis

When you work with the Fairfax fathers’ rights lawyers from our firm, we will take the time to understand you and your case, get to know your family, and create a personalized approach to your situation. You can rely on our trusted team to provide valuable legal representation and diligently protect your rights a father.
