Protecting Fathers' Rights

At Prendergast & Associates, P.C., we believe that children are best served by having both parents in their lives. If you feel you are being shut out, we will help you take the necessary legal steps to pursue a healthy relationship with your child.

In the past, laws favored mothers in child custody arrangements, this was known as the "tender years presumption" but now the courts consider "the best interests of the children." Our attorneys help fathers realize their rights in regard to time spent with their children in the wake of a divorce or separation as well as decision making authority and allocation of parental rights and responsibilities.

Parental Alienation

It is an unfortunate reality that some parents intentionally try to poison their child's relationship with the other parent. They may do this by telling the child falsehoods about their ex spouse, or constantly painting the other parent's actions in a negative light. This happens in varioius degrees, some times it is just mean, other times it can be pathologic and truly damaging to the child.  If you feel that you and your child have been victimized by parental alienation, we will aggressively fight for your rights. We work with experts in the field to help inform the court  about the needs of your child.
