Father’s Rights

Albuquerque Fathers’ Rights Attorney

Helping Fathers Throughout New Mexico

In the eyes of the law, fathers and mothers have equal rights to their children. New Mexico Law encourages both parents to be as active and involved in their children’s lives as possible. Usually, the Court decides time sharing based on the developmental needs of children. When children are very young, it is often difficult to craft a timesharing plan that gives both parents equal time. As your children become older, it is often best for them to share significant time with each parent. They need both parents to help with school work, to put them to bed, and to get them to school in the morning. If you believe your rights as a father are being infringed upon or denied completely, seek out strong legal representation from an experienced New Mexico attorney.

For more than 20 years, family lawyer Stephen P. Eaton has been representing the rights of men in divorces and other family legal situations.
