In America parents enjoy a fundamental constitutional right to the care custody and control of their children. Basically the right to raise their children as they see fit within the law. This right is prevalent in all family law cases involving children. In Deprived cases the right is paramount and anyone facing such a case where the State or Department of Human Services seeks custody of your children or termination of your rights should hire an attorney.
In Divorce cases, both parents enjoy the fundamental right and therefore the court has to balance each parents’ fundamental right to raise their children while balancing what is the child’s best interests and who can better care for the child. Protection of your parental rights is our main goal in representing our clients in custody disputes.
