Legal Support for Fathers in Child Custody and Visitation Matters

Father with custody of his son

In Iowa, there is no presumption that children are better off with mothers. Instead, the court looks at each parent to determine custody and visitation arrangements that are in the best interests of the child.

At The Law Offices of Mark R. Hinshaw, we help our clients protect and enforce their rights as fathers.

  • Child custody and visitation - As a father, you have the right to parenting time with your child. Fathers also have the right to be involved in decisions regarding their child's health, education, religion and general welfare. Our attorneys help fathers get the custody and visitation orders they need to establish and maintain a meaningful relationship with their children.
  • Child support - Both parents are responsible for the financial needs of their children. We help our clients obtain fair child support orders.
  • Modifications - If you begin spending more time with your child, relocate to a different state or your income changes, a modification of custody, visitation or support may be necessary. Our attorneys help fathers modify child custody and support orders to reflect current living and work situations.
