Our Colorado father's rights lawyers work with men to establish and maintain their rights as fathers in the face of a divorce, separation, or alienation by another parent.
The Important Role of a Father in a Child's Life
When men are involved in family law litigation, whether through a divorce, paternity, or custody case, a skilled lawyer can ensure their full roles as fathers and care providers in their children's lives is protected and maintained. Father’s rights to continue to have a say in major decisions for their children and to have significant parenting time with their kids can be well protected under Colorado laws. Depending on the age and development of each child, parenting time should be arranged to keep both parents active and involved in the children’s lives.
Studies show that children without fathers in their lives are:
- Twice as likely to drop out of school
- Two to three times more likely to use drugs
- Two to three times more likely to have emotional and behavioral problems
- At an increased risk for sexual abuse
- More than twice as likely to be incarcerated
