Fathers Rights and Primary Custody to Fathers In Sacramento

In Sacramento child custody cases, the courts can award primary custody to either parent.  The Sacramento child custody and visitation court is concerned with determining which visitation arrangement is in the child’s best interest.  In each case involving child custody and visitation, the parties are automatically referred to child custody mediation to address their custody requests.  Sacramento County Family Court Services is generally responsible for handling the parties’ custody mediation.  In other circumstances, if the parties request it, mediation will be handled by a private mediator (private marriage and family therapist) at the parties’ personal cost.

In some cases, the courts can determine that it is in the child’s best interest to award primary custody to the father.

  Many fathers fear that the court and custody mediators will ignore their status and position in their child’s lives.  However, the Sacramento child custody court and mediators are quite receptive to fathers’ rights and the importance of fathers in children’s lives.

If a court awards primary custody to a father, the mother must obey the visitation orders contained within the court order.  If the mother fails to obey the visitation orders, or withholds the child, or even flees the area with the child (in extreme cases) the father can file a motion for contempt and also immediately request assistance from law enforcement.

If you are a father and are involved in a Sacramento child custody case and you want to obtain custody and visitation rights, please give us a call.  If you are also involved in a case where the mother is violating your court ordered visitation time, you should also give us a call.  We can help you understand the important legal issues in your Sacramento child custody and visitation case in a free half-hour attorney consultation.
