Advocating for Fathers in Child Custody, Parenting Time and Visitation

Most fathers feel they should simply should give in to their wives and let them have custody and parenting time with the children. This is not the case. Fathers are crucial part of the healthy development of their children. Michigan is moving towards fostering a close relationship between the noncustodial parent and the child. If you would like to settle and have a causal relationship with your children, then hire another law firm. If you want equal time with your children and would like to hire a law firm who will help you reach your goal of spending as much time as you can with your children, then contact one of the lawyers at MUSSIN & SCANLAND, PLLC. 

Fathers today play an integral role in raising children. Divorce or separation should not lead to fathers being evicted from their children's lives. More and more, both parties work outside the home and equally participate in child care. The "cookie cutter" parenting time plan of alternate weekends and holidays should become a thing of the past.

Creative schedules can be negotiated or litigated so the children benefit from comparable time with both parents. In situations where the father has been the primary caregiver for the children, there is nothing in the law that should prevent the children from having primary residence with him.

With the latest ruling in the United States Supreme Court on same sex marriages, many same sex couples are facing the same challenges as their counterparts.  I​f your marriage is ending now, you will deal with issues like dividing property and debt in your divorce. If you have children together, your divorce will also cover custody, parenting time, and child support. You need a law firm who can help you navigate through these turbulent times.
