As a father in Tennessee, you are guaranteed a number of rights when it comes to the care, custody, and visitation of your children. In July 2011 the law in Tennessee as it relates to child custody (T.C.A. 36-3-106) was modified to state “the court shall order a custody arrangement that permits both parents to enjoy the maximum participation possible in the life of the child” (emphasis added). However, if you are a father, and you want equal parenting time with your kids, it must be made known to the court. The fathers rights attorneys at Widrig Law can help do this for you.
