Get The Facts Regarding Fathers’ And Grandparents’ Rights

Many fathers and grandparents assume that they do not have custody or visitation rights with their children or grandchildren. In the past, mothers were often favored in custody disputes — but that has changed. Fathers and grandparents now have more options for asserting their rights.

At Scott Law Group, PLLC, we can help you understand the law, your rights and take meaningful steps to protect your relationship with your child or grandchild. At our firm, we don’t play favorites. We represent mothers, fathers and grandparents with equal passion. We also proudly work with LGBT families in North Carolina. When you need to protect the best interests of the children in your life, we are here, ready to stand with you.

We Help Fathers Assert Their Rights

North Carolina does not prefer one parent over another in child custody or visitation arrangements. However, after decades of mothers receiving the favor, it can be difficult for courts to overcome an unconscious bias against fathers.

Whether you are going through a divorce and are worried about losing custody of your children or you are unmarried and have concerns about access to your children, our fathers’ rights attorneys can work with you. We can explain your custodial rights, fight for your parent-child relationship and help establish your paternity rights.

What Are Grandparents’ Rights?

Sometimes, a parent will leave their child with a grandparent. In these situations, the grandparent needs to make legal, medical and educational decisions for the child. In other circumstances, a grandparent may suspect that the child is in danger or in an unhealthy situation caused by the biological parents.

Gaining grandparent or other third-party rights is complex. You need representation on your side that has the experience to get results. Scott Law Group, PLLC, will take the time to evaluate your situation and provide an understanding of what you can expect to achieve.
