Father’s Day is just around the corner. Are you a concerned dad? Concerned about your children and your rights? Custody is not just for moms. If you are a dad seeking custody, consider these three things.
First, ask yourself why. Why is this important to you? Are you looking for equal time with your children? Are you afraid the courts will only see you as a weekend dad? Or, are you the more stable parent? Is your spouse a risk to your children? The answer to these questions will make a difference in court and a custody agreement.
The second thing you should do is look around and gather evidence. Do you have videos, pictures, or audiotapes of you and your children showing you to be the best dad you can be? If you’re concerned about your spouse or that your spouse is a risk to your kids, do you have evidence that shows what that risk is. If you want to fight for custody, you need to be prepared with evidence so the court can see that and make a decision that is in the best interest of your children.
Third. Don’ wait. Delayed action may make it look like you don’t care. The road ahead may be uncomfortable. There will undoubtedly be some conflict. But you can get through that conflict because your kids are worth it. You’re a good dad, and you care about what is best and stable for your kids.
Remember, custody is not just for moms. Your kids are worth the fight.
