Fathers’ Rights

Aggressive Representation For Fathers’ Rights

Fathers facing family legal disputes often feel that they are fighting a losing battle. Gender biases in family court are a harsh reality, and the rights and privileges of husbands and fathers are often disregarded. It often seems that Fathers must fight for what is freely given to Mothers.   Laura L. Davenport believes Fathers are as much of a parent as Mothers and should have equal footing when facing custody issues.  All too often, Fathers feel their only considered important when support is at issue and never when it comes to time with their child or in making parenting decisions.

The Law Office of Laura L. Davenport vigorously advocates for the rights of men who are facing all types of family disputes, including divorce, paternity, custody battles and spousal and child support. With a straightforward, hard-hitting approach, I fight to ensure that fathers receive equal treatment both in and out of court and that their interests and assets are protected.

Take Action Before It’s Too Late

Dealing with sensitive family legal disputes in an appropriate manner can be a challenge. Rash decisions or failure to take the proper initial steps can negatively affect the outcome. Before you file for divorce, it is important to contact a knowledgeable lawyer who can explain your rights and options. At the Law Office of Laura L. Davenport, I guide men in southern Louisiana through the necessary steps to best meet their individual needs in the following areas:

The notion that children are best cared for by their mothers is an outdated stereotype. Your role as a father is just as important. As a fathers’ custody rights attorney, Laura L. Davenport stands up for dads whose custody and visitation rights are being threatened. All custody agreements should keep the children’s best interests at the forefront. She can help you preserve or reclaim your parental rights and protect the future of your relationship with your child.

Laura L. Davenport knows that family law cases involve difficult issues, such as allegations of substance abuse and domestic violence. She has extensive experience representing parties on both sides of the situation.  As a Licensed Addiction Counselor in Louisiana and Texas, Laura L. Davenport can help you navigate these issues if your case warrants.
