In New York, Fathers have the same custody rights as Mothers.  However, in practice, Fathers often feel that the odds are against them and the courts are biased against them.  At the Badanes Law Office we will vigorously fight for your parental rights.  We are dedicated to protecting a Father’s rights to be an equal partner in the upbringing of their child.

It is often assumed that Mothers always win custody battles.  However, the law is clear, a Father has the same rights to obtain custody as a Mother.  A court’s decision cannot be based on gender.  Instead, the court must consider the “best interests” of the child and apply several factors in its determination.

Many Judges recognize that Fathers have the same rights as Mothers.  However, it is still extremely important to make sure that you hire an attorney who will zealously fight your rights.  The Badanes Law Office is dedicated to protecting Fathers’ Rights and will help you in implementing a game plan in gathering the evidence to help you in your case.
