Child custody for fathers
In most cases, the court will be more likely to award child custody rights to the mother first if the mother happens to be stable. Should the mother in any event, be a substance abuser, then the father will immediately be awarded child custody rights.
The court will first and foremost, have the child’s best interest at heart. Part of this process is ensuring that the child grows up in a healthy environment. If it is best for the child to live with the father, then that is where the child will be residing at. Fathers have the following child custody rights towards their children:
- Guardianship and sometimes even
- Primary caregivers of the child
As previously mentioned, if the mother happens to be unstable with no intention of rehabilitation, then custody rights are automatically awarded to the father. When it comes to child custody battles, there are no grey areas as the children are the center of it all.
