Dads never forget, you have rights as a parent

Regardless of the reasons that have led to the end of your personal relationship, you and the mother of your child share at least one thing -- you love your child. Sometimes after a divorce or a break-up, dads have a hard time remembering the many legal rights they have as a parent. However, learning about these rights is the first step fathers can take toward preserving them.

What should dads do in contested custody cases?

While divorcing dads seeking custody have a much greater chance of winning their cases than fathers only a few decades ago, many — rightly — feel that the custody deck is stacked against them. Below is a checklist of things a father can do that may increase the likelihood of his being named custodial parent of his children.

The value of a degree or professional license in a divorce

Equitable distribution laws apply when New York couples end a marriage, provided spouses don't have a pre-existing agreement to divvy up property in some other fashion. Prenuptial agreements are created by couples planning to be married, generally to avoid property conflicts in the event of divorce.

Coping with the Disneyland Dad syndrome

It's a problem many divorced parents face — their ex ignores the drudgery of day-to-day parenting chores in favor of sweeping gestures like sold-out concert tickets, ski weekends in the Berkshires or Fifth Avenue shopping sprees. The parent with lesser means and daily responsibilities has no way to realistically match up, and it feels as if the playing field is tilted unfairly in the other direction.
