Salem Mothers’ Rights Lawyers

Protecting the Parental Rights of Mothers

Ask any parent – taking care of a minor child is a full-time job. Parents are not only responsible for providing their children with food, clothing, and shelter, but they’re also responsible for facilitating their children’s emotional development. So when parents separate in a divorce, each parent essentially assumes many responsibilities the other parent would otherwise handle.

Whether it is you or your former spouse who ends up as the primary custodian for your children after a divorce, your parental rights as a mother are important. You are fundamentally entitled to maintain a healthy relationship with your children. At Landerholm Family Law, our skilled mothers’ rights lawyers in Salem are dedicated to making sure the court gives proper respect and recognition to your parental rights.

Comprehensive Legal Counsel for Salem Residents

Each individual has a constitutional right to have a family. This includes a mothers’ right to raise their children. However, the respective rights of divorcing parents come into conflict in matters of child custody and parenting time. Ultimately, child custody determinations are based on arrangements that serve the best interests of the divorcing parents’ minor children. But this arrangement does not extinguish a parents’ right to remain a part of their children’s lives.

Our Oregon attorneys have handled a variety of custody and parenting issues:

  • The Children’s Best Interest. Although both parents have an equal right to raise their child, courts will determine a custody arrangement that is conducive to the emotional and social wellbeing of the child. The law does not prefer one parent over the other in custody matters.
  • Child Custody & Parenting Time. A child’s biological father is entitled to spend time with their minor child. When the purported father’s biological relationship to your child is questionable, it may be necessary for the court to first establish paternity before addressing issues of custody and parenting time.
  • Child Support. Whether the court awards primary custody to you or your child’s father, both parents have a duty to support their children. The non-custodial parent will be obligated to pay child support to the custodial parent to make up for his or her physical absence from the child’s life.

The applicable laws regarding parental rights can be complex and difficult to navigate. As a result, it is in your best interest to retain the professional legal services of an experienced mothers’ rights attorney in Salem. If your child’s father is uncooperative when it comes to either paying child support, respecting the arranged parenting plan, or even participating in paternity proceedings, Landerholm Family Law can help.

Ideally, any conflict between you and your child’s father would be resolved amicably through private mediation and settlement. However, we are prepared to use the full extent of the law the ensure your parental rights as a mother are not infringed by the father’s actions.
