What Are My Rights as a Father in CT?

There are many rights a father can have in the state of Connecticut. In regards to child custody and/or visitation, a father has the legal right to seek full custody if it serves as the best interests of the child. As more traditional cases have awarded mothers with primary custody, modernization of the court's values has allowed fathers to win primary as well.

Just like the mother, a father also has the right to seek child support as the primary custodian. The identical resources that mothers are able to utilize to gain support can be used by fathers as well.

Our men's rights lawyers in CT can also advise you how to obtain paternity if you are seeking joint or primary custody. Establishing paternity allows a man to prove that he is the father of the child. Keep in mind, you do not have to prove paternity if you:

  • Were married to your child's mother when she became pregnant with the child
  • Both signed a paternity form at the hospital or the Connecticut Department of Social Services

Fact vs. Fiction about Men’s Rights

FICTION – Connecticut is a Mother State
FACT – This is a common misconception that many people have. Men have the same rights as women in a divorce.


FICTION – Children Don't Need Their Father as Much as their Mother
FACT – Children need their fathers just as much as their mothers and countless studies agree! Children need a strong father relationship and the divorce attorneys at Marquette, Piscatelli, & Sheehan do everything possible to fight for your right to custody of your child.


FICTION – The Custodial Parent Can Deny Visitation
FACT – The father has a right to visitation even if the mother has sole custody. Visitation will be determined by what is in the best interest of the children. Our divorce attorneys will use their experience and savvy to get fathers the best parenting schedule possible, so they can maintain their relationships with their children, even without custody.


FICTION – Men always have to pay alimony to their ex-wives.
FACT – There is no strict rule of alimony. Each case is different and is determined by a multiple of factors, like age, health, occupation, sources of income, vocational skills, employability, and more.


FICTION – The court is going to rule that my hectic work schedule prevents me from having reasonable visitation time with my children.
FACT – The attorneys at Marquette, Piscatelli, & Sheehandeal with clients with extraordinarily busy work schedules on a daily basis throughout the State of Connecticut. They are excellent at crafting detailed parental responsibility plans which meet the unique needs of fathers with busy and unusual work hours. Our divorce lawyers have the knowledge and skill to present your case to the Judge in a manner which prioritizes father’s relationships with their children.


FICTION – I am going to be stereotyped as “unfit” and not be able to obtain child custody
FACT – While our Hamden attorneys who represent men's rights constantly hear this accusation from the opposing party in divorce and custody cases, most of the time, it is just that – an accusation unsupported by truth and the facts. GMR provides compassionate individualized attention to each one of its clients. Understanding your unique story and presenting it to the court in the most favorable light is crucial in preventing this accusation from becoming an order of the court.


FICTION – I am going to be stereotyped as a deep-pocketed husband who prioritizes his own financial needs over those of his family.
FACT – This is another common accusation that the attorneys at Marquette, Piscatelli, & Sheehan battle on a daily basis. Do not allow the court to have this opinion of you. Contact one of our custody and divorce attorneys today to allow them to thoroughly assess your financial situation and present a case to the court which emphasizes your years of hard work and sacrifice for your family.
