Help For Working Dads Facing Divorce And Custody Issues

Divorcing dads can feel pulled in many directions when going through a divorce. They must work to provide for their children, but they want to see their children despite their hectic schedules. An experienced attorney can help dads who work different schedules obtain fair child custody and visitation schedules.

At W. Tyler Moore, PC, our experienced fathers' rights lawyer helps working dads negotiate satisfactory visitation and custody results. Our clients include police officers, firefighters, security guards and refinery workers who don't work typical 9-to-5 schedules, but who do want to actively parent their children. Our attorney has more than 40 years of experience helping thousands of dads stay active as fathers, and we're here today to help you fight for your rights as a parent.

Custody Issues For Fathers With Nontraditional Work Schedules

With a traditional work schedule, parenting time allows both parents to enjoy weekday and weekend parenting responsibilities. For dads with nontraditional work schedules, accommodations must be made that allow fathers to enjoy meaningful time with their children. Family law attorneys can work out a variety of parenting time schedules such as:

  • Two weeks with dad, two weeks with mom

  • Alternate weekends with each parent

  • Weekday overnights with a dad who works weekends

  • Flexible schedules for dads whose work schedules change often

At W. Tyler Moore, PC, we can negotiate with your wife's lawyer to come up with a custody schedule that is fair for all parties. The best schedule will allow your child to have meaningful time with both parents while respecting the best wishes of the child first and foremost. When you know you have regular visits with your child, you can stop worrying about spending time together and focus on being the parent your child needs.
