Father’s Rights

A father has equal rights under New Mexico law.

A father has the same rights as a mother, and regardless of whether the two parents were ever married or involved in a relationship, a father can fight for child custody and child support the same way that a mother can. If you are a father seeking custody, visitation and/or support, it is in your best interest to know your rights and consult with an attorney about your case.

We will protect the legal rights of fathers experiencing custody, support and visitation issues. A fathers’ rights encompass many aspects of divorce and family law, including the following:

  • Child custody
  • Child support and payment
  • Paternity
  • Visitation issues
  • Modifications
  • Types of custody
