Protecting Parental Rights Throughout Northern Virginia

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.

If you are worried about your rights as a father being taken away, call (703) 343-9539 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.

  • The ability of each parent to care for the child
  • The child’s wishes

  • History of domestic violence between the family members
  • The ability to properly care for the child on a day-to-day basis
