You may have heard the label. You may be living the label, or, you may be trying to prevent the label. Yet many fathers who have visitation of their kids live the "Disneyland Dad" lifestyle.
Fathers' Rights in California refers to Fathers who want to maintain a relationship with their children in a Paternity or Divorce matter. Typically, equitable Child Custody and shared parenting for fathers, is the primary goal in a Fathers' rights case. This is the absolute opposite of the "dead-beat-dad" who ignores his children, and pays no child support after separation from the biological mother of his child.
Father's Rights has become a very strong movement in Family Law and child custody proceedings. It can affect custody, visitation and child support. It is commonly invoked by fathers of children and step-parents who are concerned with the custody or visitation of their husband's children.
