5 Tips for Preparing a Father’s Custody Case

When it comes to your rights as a father, determining and solidifying your custody rights is extremely important, especially in a custody battle.

What Is Paternity Fraud?

Fathers face many significant challenges in the family court system of the United States. Every father and every alleged father need to know their rights when it comes to establishing paternity.
