Mothers’ & Fathers’ Rights

In Minnesota, each parent has equal rights — the law does not prefer one parent over the other. At Dougherty, Molenda, Solfest, Hills & Bauer P.A., we understand that children are best served by having a meaningful relationship with both parents and that both mothers and fathers deserve to be more than a weekend stay or source of financial support.

Some law firms promote themselves as “Father’s Rights Attorneys” or “Mother’s Rights Attorneys.” Our firm has never done this. We include both fathers and mothers on our list of satisfied clients. Our family law department has represented thousands of satisfied parents, both fathers and mothers.

Our attorneys are committed to promoting advocacy for mothers’ rights and fathers’ rights. In short, we are committed to advocating for our clients’ rights, and to achieving our clients’ legal goals in regard to child custody, parenting time, child support and other critical legal matters.

Protecting Your Parental Rights

While in the past, the typical child custody arrangement granted the mother physical custody and the father visitation privileges, the paradigm has shifted. The law now views both parents equally.

In establishing child custody and parenting time schedules, the courts are committed to protecting the best interests of the child. In advocating for parents’ rights, we are protecting the rights of the children and their parents.

Our lawyers are aggressive trial advocates who will work to ensure that your role in the child’s life is not diminished and that your child obtains the priceless gift of having a strong relationship with his or her mother and father.

We are also committed to ensuring that our clients’ rights are protected in child support determinations and modifications.
