Fathers often feel they are neglected and overlooked in the family law system. While in theory, the legal system in the UK treats fathers and mothers in an equal manner, there are still situations where the fathers will face bias and their relationship with their child will suffer as a result.
As a team, our Solicitors are committed to ensuring children can maintain relationships with both parents. This is why we have created a dedicated team of lawyers who specialise in dad’s rights. If as a father, you feel your ability to form a relationship with your child is being obstructed, we can advise and represent you.
Rakhi Singal heads our family law team. She has years of experience as a divorce and family lawyer and has worked with many fathers in protecting their rights. As a Director of the firm, Rakhi has sought to create a legal practice where the focus is firmly on the client and providing a high quality of care which considers the needs of the children as well as the adults. She understands very clearly the emotional damage that a man can suffer through being cut off from his child. She also is acutely aware of the financial implications in many such scenarios and has a multitude of tactics in her arsenal to preserve your financial position and to ensure that your love for your child will not be used against you. Her team has been trained at the highest standard and they share her values and expertise, so you can rest assured that no matter who at RVS is dealing with your matter, you have the best father’s rights lawyers acting for you.
As members of Resolution, we follow their Code of Practice which focuses on resolving family disputes in a non-confrontational way. Our Solicitors will advise you in a way that preserves or seeks to repair family relations rather than inflame conflict. Apart from saving you some heartache, this approach can also ensure that your legal costs are kept reasonable and are not inflamed unnecessarily.
There are three main issues facing fathers in family law:
- Acquiring parental responsibility.
- The mother is refusing to allow contact or is alienating the child.
- Child maintenance payments.
