Father’s Visitation Rights

Men seeking a divorce attorney must understand that any competent and ethical lawyer will act in the best interests of their client. The most beneficial qualities that a lawyer can offer their client include:

1. Analysis and Strategy
2. Meticulous Preparation
3. Polished Negotiation
4. Credibility in Court

A lawyer’s preconceived notions for or against a particular gender will not benefit the client’s case before a judge. For this reason, Charles Bendig offers equal representation to both men and women. Instead, we focus on the rights and interests of the client.

Do father’s receive fair treatment in court?

Historically, there was a perception that family courts were against men. Men believed that the courts would always award child custody to the mother with an accompanying judgment for the father to pay child support and spousal maintenance (alimony).

In reality, Ohio family courts are focused on the best interest of the child, not the archaic stereotypes of men’s and women’s roles. The court will determine which situation is best for the child. The court will not assume that men should pay spousal support and child support, opening the possibility for men to receive support payments.

How do I choose the right attorney to defend my visitation rights?

What is most important is whether the lawyer has the experience, skill, credibility, and resources to yield the results you need. We understand the unique issues that men face in family court. We are zealous advocates for all of our clients, regardless of gender. This commitment demonstrates our respect and dedication for our roles as unbiased lawyers in the justice system.
