Fathers’ Rights

There’s been a tendency in family courts to favor mothers in terms of child custody. However, the courts in Columbia, MO have begun to go against the traditional ruling; fathers are gaining custody more and more frequently. Nevertheless, family law cases can still be difficult for men. If you’re going through a divorce, you need legal representation committed to defending your parental rights. Rutter and Sleeth Law Offices have your back.

Focus on the Best Interest of Your Child

Courts award custody based on which parent will serve a child’s best interests.  The judge considers a variety of factors to determine appropriate living arrangements and visitation schedules for you and your children. Some of the factors your judge may consider include:

  • The medical history, both physical and mental, of you and your children
  • The ages of your children
  • The emotional bond between you and your children
  • Your children’s preferences-whom they’d rather live with
  • Your physical and financial ability to provide for your children’s basic needs-clothing, food, shelter,
    and medical care

Every case is different. The judge may determine custody based on factors unique to your family. Secure a fair ruling with the help of Rutter and Sleeth Law Offices.
