The law in Michigan says that men and women have equal rights during divorce, custody, and visitation proceedings. However, what the laws of the State of Michigan say and what happens in courts in Michigan are different .........................
A father has the right to:
Be involved in his child’s life;
Ask for custody of his child;
Ask for child support if he is the custodial parent;
Participate in his child’s life if he is not the custodial parent, without unfair control or interference from the custodial parent;
Foster an ongoing relationship with his child with the child's best interests in mind. This could mean coming to an agreement in which arrangements to share parenting are made between the custodial and non-custodial parent.
Advice For Putting the Kids First in Divorce
Fathers Rights and Child Support
When child support is awarded to the custodial parent (in this case the mother) for the support and care of her child/children, the father has every right to visitations. It is important you understand that under the law, fathers do have equal rights.
Protect your rights and stop paying unreasonable child support.

Addressing Fathers' Concerns About Child Support
Many Michigan dads who do not receive physical custody of their children are also concerned about the amount of child support that they will have to pay. Under Michigan laws, there are guidelines for the circuit court to use in attempt to balance fathers' child support obligations with the financial needs of the child(ren).
When a Court has to consider and to weigh the father's ability to pay with the needs of the children, a lawyer's ability to make sure that the court takes into consideration the most important factors into account can make a huge and long-lasting difference.
If circumstances change after a child custody and support order is issued, it can be modified by filing a motion in court to reflect those changes. In some cases, it may be possible for fathers to get greater visitation rights and reductions in child support. Please contact our Michigan divorce and family law lawyers today.
