Des Moines Fathers’ Rights Attorneys

Protecting & Fighting for Your Paternal Rights

Fathers often feel that they take a back seat when it comes to their relationship with their children. Whether you are a divorced father or the legally recognized father of a child whose mother you never married, you retain certain paternal rights by law. Your relationship with your child should never be threatened or diminished due to unfair custody or visitation orders. You also should never be subject to unfair or excessive child support payments.

If you are in a situation in which you feel your rights as a father have been compromised, you should turn to a reliable family law attorney for legal support. Hope Law Firm’s team of Des Moines fathers’ rights lawyers has assisted countless men in defending those rights before Iowa courts. We understand the important role fathers can play in the stability and care of their children which extends far beyond the financial aspects. Our team will fight aggressively to help maintain or restore the rights you deserve and have been granted by law.

Fathers’ Rights in Iowa

Iowa courts do not consider the sex of the parent when determining child custody and visitation rights. Courts generally are in favor of a child having steady access to both parents. The main factor that the court will consider is what is in the best interests of the child.

As a father, you have the following rights:

  • The right to parent your child with appropriate visitation or custody.
  • The right to make decisions concerning your child’s overall welfare, medical needs, education, and religion
  • The right to a fair and equitable child support order
  • The right to petition the court for modifications to child support or custody orders should you or your ex-spouse experience a substantial change in circumstances relating to work, family, or financial situations
