Although the contributions of mothers in parenting have long been recognized, the recognition of fathers’ equal importance in their children’s lives has taken a bit longer. Societal views on parenting have changed drastically in the last few decades. A father is no longer expected to be the family breadwinner while the mother stays at home to care for the children. Today’s families come in all shapes and sizes.
With the high divorce rate and increased number of children born to unmarried parents, family courts have also had to adapt their thinking. Automatic custodial preference is no longer given to mothers. Fathers’ rights to custody and visitation are receiving more consideration, and courts seek to make these decisions based on the best interests of the child.

East Brunswick Custody Rights Lawyer
At the New Jersey Law Offices of Jeffrey W. Goldblatt Esq., we have more than 30 years of experience advocating for fathers’ rights in child custody, visitation and child support cases. We believe children should have the opportunity to have a strong relationship with both parents, and we strive to protect fathers’ rights to have their parenting rights and obligations decided on an equal footing with those of mothers.
Taking a Personal Approach to Fathers’ Rights Cases
Attorney Jeffrey W. Goldblatt protects the rights of single and divorced fathers throughout New Jersey. His approach to client service is sensitive and caring while he aggressively protects fathers’ rights at the negotiating table or in the courtroom.
Mr. Goldblatt understands many fathers feel as though they have become nothing more than “visitors” in their children’s lives since agreeing to divorce or break-up. He works to remedy this situation by helping our clients win back the role they are meant to play.
We vigorously represent all of our clients in family law, with particular attention to the best interests of the children. Sometimes circumstances require certain limitations or restrictions to be placed on a father’s parenting time with his children and, in such cases we aggressively protect the rights of the mother and children.
