Hackensack, New Jersey Father's Rights Lawyer

Custody and VisitationParenting TimePhysical 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 former spouse 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 1988.

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. Call or email us today to schedule a free half hour telephone consultation with one of our attorneys.
