Paternity refers to the legal establishment of a biological father's relationship with a child. Establishing paternity determines the rights and responsibilities of the father, including child custody, visitation, and child support obligations. Attorney Paul Moses has handled countless cases establishing paternity and the rights of fathers to be involved in raising their children and he would be happy to discuss your case and your questions. Call us at 406.630.3032.
At our Firm, “Fathers’ Rights” is not some radical, angry man, “anti-mom” approach. Instead, we employ a unique, pro-children approach to divorce and separation represented by our Four Core Values –
Therefore, it is an important goal of our Firm that fathers are not reduced to the role of "Uncle Dad" through infrequent sleepovers with their children, occasional trips to the mall or movies, a random dinner before
"returning home to mom," and little to no involvement in day-to-day decisions.
Consider taking your children's future into your own hands today and consult with an attorney who has years of experience fairly and aggressively, although also respectfully, advocating for fathers.
Under Montana law, both parents have equal rights and responsibilities when it comes to raising their children. This means that fathers have the right to seek custody or visitation and be involved in making decisions regarding their children's welfare just as mothers do.
Yes, fathers have the same chance as mothers to be awarded custody in Montana. The court's primary consideration is the best interests of the child, and gender is not a determining factor. The court will assess each parent's ability to provide a nurturing and stable environment for the child.
The law in Montana does not look favorably on such behavior, regardless of which parent is the one interfering with parenting time and involvement. Therefore it is important that a father document his interactions with the child and the child's mother, especially any instances of a lack of cooperation or conflict. It's still a very a smart idea to contact a Montana attorney with experience handling paternity and fathers' rights cases.
Yes, unmarried fathers have the right to seek custody or visitation rights in Montana. However, establishing paternity is crucial for unmarried fathers to assert their rights. This can be done through voluntary acknowledgment, genetic testing, or a court order.
If a father genuinely and respectfully believes the mother is unfit to have custody, he can petition the court for custody and present evidence supporting his claim. The court will consider the best interests of the child and evaluate the evidence presented by both parents before making a decision. In cases such as this, you DO NOT want to go it alone before a judge, so give strong consideration to hiring a qualified family law attorney in Montana.
No, but you can do your own brain surgery, too. In either instance, the results will be the same: bloody and irreversible. So while you are not required to have an attorney, it is highly recommended to seek experienced legal representation if you have questions about or are interested in issues related to paternity or establishing your rights as a father in Montana.
