Fathers' Rights Lawyer in Massachusetts

An attorney divorcing fathers can trust

No one has it easy in a divorce, but fathers face a particularly tough battle. It may seem as though the circumstances are stacked against you and you find yourself under pressure to comply with whatever your ex-wife wants.

It doesn't have to be that way. Springfield attorney Brittany J. Smith knows how difficult it is for you. She and her team have the experience and dedication needed to help fathers fight for positive outcomes in their divorce, separation and child custody matters throughout Massachusetts.

Common fathers' rights issues in family court

There are many reasons why divorced, separated or never-married fathers may need to go to family court. Some of those matters include:

  • Child custody and parenting time
  • Establishing paternity
  • Giving (or refusing) consent to adoption
  • Termination of parental rights (if the mother is an unfit parent)
  • Defense against termination of parental rights
  • Child support
  • Post-divorce enforcement (if the mother is not complying with divorce terms)

Attorney Brittany J. Smith has a strong track record of successfully representing fathers in these and other family law matters, including getting full custody for fathers in several cases when appropriate.

Fathers' rights matter. Get an attorney who will fight for you.

Massachusetts law requires judges to make decisions on custody and child support matters based on the best interests of the child. And the evidence says that in the majority of cases, a strong relationship with the father is in the best interests of the child. Children from fatherless families are statistically more likely to do poorly in school, use illegal drugs and commit crimes. That's why it's so important for dads to stay involved with their kids after a divorce or separation - and why, in so many cases, they need strong representation in court.

Whether in a negotiated settlement, in mediation or through litigation, the Law Office of Brittany J. Smith will fight for your rights and seek the best possible outcome for you and your children. Attorney Brittany J. Smith will get to know you and your family and work with you to find solutions that uphold and strengthen the unique relationship you have with your kids. If their mother is uncooperative, attorney Smith and her team will be firmly in your corner every step of the way.
