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

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

Children returned and Assets retained… enough said!
I retained Mike and Rebecca to represent me in what even the presiding judge admitted was one of the most complex cases he'd ever seen. Basically, my ex spouse manufactured allegations against me which she used to remove our minor children from the Commonwealth to return to her home state without my knowledge or consent. I had to fight tooth and nail to try and clear my name and get my kids back. Well, Mike and Rebecca did just that. They met every legal challenge professionally and with decisions that were in the best interest of the children. The result is that ALL of the children have been returned home to Virginia with me having primary custody AND I retained ALL of my assets. Note: I am also a lawyer who knows great legal work...this is such a case. The best interest of the child(ren) is THE standard.
Without his guidance and representation I am confident that I would be lost and without my children.

“Mike Murphy and his team helped me negotiate a very favorable divorce settlement. Their advice and counsel allowed me to keep 100% of my military pension, sole ownership of my two homes, and helped reduce my spousal support payments from seven years to five. I never dreamed a settlement this favorable was possible, but Mike and his team made it a reality.”
