It is no secret that in some courtrooms fathers have to work twice as hard to prove their value in a child’s life. It is also no secret that implicit bias exists, even in our judicial system. Traditional gender roles in a family often sway a judge’s decision when deciding matters such as child custody, visitation, and the best interests of a child. Therefore, wouldn’t it make sense to obtain the services of an attorney who is also willing to work twice as hard to prove your parenting fitness?
Fathers in today’s society find themselves in various predicaments when it comes to paternity and parenting. To someone who has never been forced to navigate the family court system, simply establishing paternity in order to pursue father’s rights can become overwhelming. In the state of Nebraska, a father has four years from the day of a child’s birth to establish paternity. If an application is filed even four years and one day later, a father’s rights are automatically terminated. This is why, if a father intends to be a part of a child’s life, it is of the utmost importance that he consult with legal counsel as soon as he even suspects that he may be the father. Time is of the essence.
Attorney James Adams has a passion for defending fathers’ rights and helping these men become an active participant in a child’s life. As a former Marine sniper, he is accustomed to aggressive, hostile situations. He will not back down against gender bias, implicit bias, false accusations, or unfair rulings against any father attempting to know and raise his child.
Whether you are a father who is defending himself against false domestic violence accusations, attempting to prove paternity, or fighting for equal parenting time, the Law Offices of James A. Adams will be a phone call you will not regret.
