Danbury Lawyers Protecting the Fathers' Rights in a Divorce

In most divorces in the recent past, a mothers' rights to be the primary custodial parent for the children was the norm. However, times are changing and fathers have taken a more prominent role in the raising of their children. Courts today are being much more cognizant of the importance of a father's role in their children's lives and are more and more awarding joint custody or even primary custody to a father. A Danbury family lawyer can assist you in pursuing your fathers' rights in Connecticut when you are facing divorce. Both parents being involved in the raising of their children is vital to the health and happiness of all concerned.

If you are concerned with your rights as a father in Connecticut, contact Jowdy & Jowdy today to learn more about how we can help you.
