In a recent article featured in Attorney At Law Magazine, STG Divorce Law Managing Shareholder and Best Selling Author Raiford Palmer discusses why he thinks divorced dads should get more time with their kids and why equal time laws may not be the best way to do it.
If you’re a divorced dad, you might be wondering how you can get more time with your kids. After all, they’re half yours, so shouldn’t you have an equal say in how they’re raised? Unfortunately, the law doesn’t always see it that way. In many states, child custody is determined by what’s known as the “Best Interests of the Child” standard, which takes into account factors like which parent is the child’s primary caregiver and which parent can provide the most stable home environment. This can often leave fathers feeling like they’ve been short-changed when it comes to parenting time.
When it comes to divorce, dads often get the short end of the stick. The laws are constantly changing and can often be confusing. The good news is help is available, and you don’t have to go about it alone.
