Father & Mother's Rights Four Decades of Experience Guiding Clients Through Legal Matters

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 or a father, your priority is to maintain an active and healthy relationship with your child as the years go by. It can be difficult for divorcing 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.

At Hopper Law Office, our Raleigh father and mother’s rights lawyers help clients approach these types of contentious situations carefully to minimize the stress for everyone involved. When you work with us, we can ensure that your rights are respected and upheld in a manner that does not needlessly bring detriment to your spouse. We understand that your children are your most precious asset, and we are committed to helping you both spend time fairly with your children.

Call Hopper Law Office at (919) 876-3300 today to speak to a dedicated legal professional.

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.

Establishing Paternity

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.
