Elmhurst Fathers' Rights Attorneys

Burr Ridge Dad's Rights Attorneys

Lawyers in DuPage County Protecting the Rights of Fathers During and After Divorce

Studies across the country continue to show that growing up without a father is one of the biggest risk factors a child could have in life. Children who grow up without an active, loving father are more likely to struggle in school, abuse drugs, commit crimes, and experience emotional and behavioral problems compared to children whose fathers were present in their lives.

At Wakenight & Associates, P.C., we know that a father can continue to be active in his child's life after a divorce. and the benefits of a present father can still be realized even if a child's father and mother are no longer living in the same home together. Unfortunately, fathers often face an uphill battle when it comes to exercising their rights and assuming parental responsibilities. Our lawyers are committed to helping men throughout northern Illinois protect their rights and serve the best interests of their children.

Helping Men Be Good Fathers in Oak Brook and Villa Park

Our attorneys have more than 95 years of combined experience in the practice of family law. With our background, we have seen honest, hardworking men get taken advantage of by spiteful former partners and the family legal system itself.

For decades, society simply accepted that when a man and a woman got married, the man was responsible for earning a living while the woman took on the role of primary parent. When that same man and woman got divorced, it was generally assumed that the mother was more fit to maintain responsibility for the children. The father was often left to pay child support and visit with his children every other weekend.

Today's fathers, however, have assumed more significant roles in nurturing and raising children. More men are stay-at-home dads, and men are genuinely invested in providing what is best for their children. Legally, fathers do have equal rights regarding their children—at least at the beginning of a divorce—but enforcing and exercising such rights may require getting past biases and stereotypes that persist despite social changes.

Trusted Lombard Counsel for Divorced Fathers

The skilled lawyers at Wakenight & Associates, P.C. appreciate and admire mothers who make sacrifices to give their children the best possible life. We know, however, that many fathers often struggle to be recognized as equal parents and child-raising partners. In many situations, hardworking fathers need aggressive representation to ensure they are being treated fairly in regard to their children.

It is unacceptable for a man to be denied access to his children without cause or to have his children turned against him by an angry ex-spouse. Our firm works on behalf of fathers in proceedings for the allocation of parental responsibilities, parenting time, child support, and all other matters of family law.
