Fathers are taking a more active role in their children's lives than ever before, and courts have begun to acknowledge the importance of fathers in the case of custody. With courts focusing on children's well-being rather than a parent's gender, fathers today have a better chance of obtaining custody of their children. Even so, you need the help of an attorney who has experience securing fathers' rights when it comes to custody, visitation, and other issues.

How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located near you?
