Raleigh Father & Mother’s Rights Attorneys
Maintaining Your Rights & Your Relationships
Going through a
divorce as a parent can make things extremely complicated. Whether you are a mother

spouses to find the middle ground in
child custody and
visitation issues. Without proper legal representation, you could be at risk of having
your parental rights violated.

How We Can Protect Your Rights
In North Carolina, both parents generally have equal rights to their children.
This means that a judge cannot favor one parent because of their gender.
However, a parent’s rights may be limited if the court has reason
to believe that time spent with their child would not be in the child’s
best interest. For example, if one parent has a history of domestic violence,
their access to their child may be significantly restricted.
There are many situations in which a father or mother’s rights must
be protected. Perhaps your child’s other parent is preventing you
from seeing your child. Maybe your former spouse is not complying with
visitation orders or is failing to pay child support. If any of these
circumstances are true for you, our lawyers can help you protect your
rights and seek legal repercussions.
Our attorneys are committed to protecting the rights of mothers and fathers
in all types of family law matters, including:
Defending Against Accusations of Being an Unfit Parent
During your child custody dispute, your child’s other parent may
accuse you of being unfit to parent your child. A failure to defend against
these accusations could cause you to lose custody of your child, even
if the accusations are unfounded. Our
family lawyers can help you address these concerns and challenge any effort to take your
children away from you.
Every child deserves the opportunity to engage in a supportive relationship
with both of their parents. Whether you are a father seeking to establish
your parental rights so that you can spend time with your child, or a
mother trying to establish paternity so that you can have adequate finances
to support your child, we can help. Reach out to
Hopper Law Office today to explore your options and determine if DNA testing is necessary
to establish paternity.
