Protecting Fathers’ Rights During Divorce And Family Disputes

If one parent in a divorce is more financially and emotionally prepared to care for the children, it should not matter whether that parent is the mother or the father. If both parents have strong, day-to-day relationships with the children; can provide good, safe homes and ensure family continuity equally, they should each be given an equal share of parenting time with their children. In both New York and New Jersey, the family law statutes were made gender-neutral decades ago. Most parenting experts agree that children do best when they have substantial, positive relationships with both parents. So why do mothers still get the lion’s share of time with the kids?

Attorney Philip Greenberg recognizes that reality has not kept up with the rhetoric. Implicit biases still exist that men are primarily financial resources and women are primarily caregivers. Throughout more than 40 years in practice, Philip A. Greenberg, P.C., Attorneys at Law has been committed to making sure his clients’ children benefit from healthy relationships with both their mothers and their fathers. Fathers’ rights issues are a more complex and niche area of family law. When lawyers who are unfamiliar with this area of the law work on these cases, fathers become more vulnerable to a negative outcome. It is important to work with a knowledgeable lawyer the first time to help prevent a costly mistake. At Philip A. Greenberg, P.C., Attorneys at Law, resolving these matters is an important part of the firm’s practice. Philip A. Greenberg, P.C., Attorneys at Law works to ensure that fathers receive fair treatment during custody, support and other divorce-related issues.

What It Means – And Does Not Mean – To Be A Fathers’ Rights Advocate

Does being a fathers’ rights advocate mean you’re anti-woman? Of course not. As a family law and divorce lawyer, Mr. Greenberg represents both men and women every day. He believes – as so many clients of both sexes do – that courts have no business favoring one gender over the other when it comes to their abilities to support or care for their children financially. The idea behind fathers’ rights is simply that societal bias against men in caregiving roles is harmful to fathers, children and, ultimately, mothers. Recognizing that such biases exist and fighting them is the right thing to do.

When people talk about “fathers’ rights,” they generally mean the right to equal consideration in terms of child custody and parenting. If you are a father, your relationship with your child should depend on you – not on whether you were recently divorced or married in the first place.

For decades, family attorney Greenberg has fought passionately on behalf of fathers in child custody, parenting time/visitation, child support and related issues. He also advocates for men’s rights and gender equality in financial issues. He understands the emotional factors that come into play when parents discuss custody, support and parenting time of their children. He gives personal attention to each case, and he is readily available for clients at their convenience.
