Father’s Rights

Hackensack, New Jersey Father’s Rights Lawyer

Custody and Visitation | Parenting Time | Physical and Legal Custody

Maybe you’ve been the stay-at-home dad during the marriage. Or perhaps your work schedule has been more flexible or has more “kid-friendly” hours and you’re the one who goes to the parent teacher conferences, makes sure the homework gets done, arranges the play-dates and doctor appointments. Or maybe you and your wife have truly shared all the parenting responsibilities. But now that you are facing divorce, your ex wants physical custody and wants to relegate you to being a “weekend dad”.

Dads Have Rights Too!

At the Law Offices of Kelly Berton Rocco, we have protected the rights of fathers in divorce matters since 1993.

We believe that Moms are important—very important. But so are dads! We know that children fare best when they have two involved, caring, loving parents in their corner. When children are blessed to have that, it shouldn’t change because the parents are getting a divorce. Shared custody is not right in every case: in cases of abuse (alcohol, drugs, physical or emotional), in high conflict cases where the parents just cannot get along, where the parents do not live in close proximity to each other it just won’t work. But in the right cases, with the right people, shared custody is ideal and should be the goal.

If you are a caring, involved father and you are seeking sole or shared residential custody, contact the Law Offices of Kelly Berton Rocco. We have successfully negotiated shared custody agreements as well as sole legal and residential custody for dads. We want what’s best for your children and we’re ready to fight for it.

Compassionate, Aggressive Representation You Can Trust


Why Hire Kelly Berton Rocco?
  • Family law matters are often charged with emotion and parties can be overwhelmed by the myriad of decisions that need to be made. Feelings of frustration, helplessness, anger and sadness are normal. We understand. Our attorneys and staff provide you with the compassionate, personal attention you deserve and the experience and integrity you demand. Whenever possible, we attempt to amicably settle the issues. When parties come to an agreement without court intervention, the results are generally more satisfying for the parties and spares them the emotional and financial cost of trial. Unfortunately, that is not always possible. And when it isn't, you want aggressive representation you can trust.
