Sanford Lawyers Protecting Fathers' Rights And Mothers' Rights

Establishing parental rights does more than protect you as a parent. It protects your child as well by giving him or her a clear and appropriate legal guardian under the law. The benefits of this for the child include:

  • The right to financial support
  • The right to health benefits
  • A clear understanding of his or her identity and background
  • A legal guardian who can make important decisions regarding education, health care and upbringing
  • Status as a beneficiary of benefits and inheritance

Beyond the initial legal status as a child's parent, you may need to assert your rights as a parent in divorce proceedings. These decisions can often be more difficult because of the contentious relationship between divorcing parents. By working with a child custody lawyer at Elias Law Offices you can achieve results in your personal life while focusing on what it takes to be successful under the law.
