Mistakes that Fathers Should Avoid in their Child Custody Case

There are many factors that could affect your custody rights as a father. Our father's rights lawyer in Westlake can represent you and your interests. To put yourself in the best position for success during a custody battle, avoid the following mistakes.

Overzealous Litigation
Many lawyers encourage fathers to try and drain their spouse's resources by out-spending them in litigation. Not only is unreasonable behavior forbidden by California law, but this may also reduce your credibility in the eyes of the court. In the end, this could damage your family law case, as the judge has discretionary powers and could find the mother to be more trustworthy based on your actions in litigation.

Surrender of Your Rights
Don't give up too easily. You have both responsibilities and rights toward your child. Thinking that the courts are biased and will automatically give custody rights to the mother is a huge mistake! You should get quality time with your children, for their sake and yours. An experienced paternity lawyer can help you gain your rightful custody and visitation time.

Excessive Generosity
While you always want to do what is best for your child, giving money to your spouse does not always benefit your child. If you are spending too much on your former spouse's personal expenses so she can maintain her former lifestyle, it may put you in a difficult financial situation later on. It may also discourage her from supporting herself because she can rely on you.
