Navigating Child Custody For Fathers

Men often feel they get short shrift in child custody cases, especially if they are the primary breadwinners. Without a doubt, ensuring your right to meaningful involvement in your child's life is a paramount concern.

In Kentucky, many families pursue shared custody arrangements in which the parents split physical custody 50-50. Many fathers in particular find this type of custody arrangement preferable to every other weekend or more limited visitation situations. Additionally, split custody can equalize each parent's child support obligation.

Modifying Existing Orders

Settlement agreements, child custody and child support orders are not necessarily permanent. Changes in life circumstances can necessitate modifying an arrangement. To pursue a modification, however, it may be necessary to go to court. Additionally, there are legal rules and standards governing when modifications are attainable.

If you are considering pursuing a modification — or defending against the other party's attempt to modify an order — it is in your best interest to consult with a lawyer.
