Are you a father or husband faced with a pending divorce?

Are you dealing with property division or child custody/support issues?

Perhaps you’re facing a situation where you’re being alienated as a parent or the mother of your children has given you notice of intent to relocate with the children.

These are serious issues that can permeate every area of your life creating emotional and financial distress. I know because I’ve experienced it all myself.

Unfortunately, our legal system adds to all the stresses of divorce by leaning in favor of the mother by default. Without a careful strategic approach to your case you could be at a disadvantage right from the start.

San Diego Military Fathers Divorce Lawyer

In San Diego, Father’s Rights Law Center® has represented military clients and their families for the past 30 years. Family lawyer Peter Mueller graduated from the Federal Maritime Academy graduate with honors and is a retired member of the United States Navy (formerly an officer).

The Father’s Rights Law Center® has been able to coordinate parenting plans for military clients while they are on deployment in a manner that has facilitated contact with the children while at the same time taking into consideration that the father or mother in the military is going to be serving their country. We help minimize support during deployment and take parenting time into consideration.

We are familiar with the Federal Uniform Services Former Spouse Protection Act (FUSFSPA) with regard to retirement issues and the 10 year rule as it impacts retirees and making payments to former spouse with regard to pension.


Protecting Fathers’ Custody Rights

One aspect of the Father’s Rights Law Center® program that has proved helpful for clients when initiating joint custodial parenting plans acceptable to the court has been our immediate involvement of prominent child psychologists for clients before the first court appearance to help the father prepare a reasonable parenting plan consistent with family history and needs. Father’s Rights Law Center® director Peter Mueller helps clientele with obtaining balanced and equitable custody sharing arrangements by involving experts of all types to assist in the case. California courts attempt to protect minor children during the divorce process and to lessen the emotional trauma the children may be experiencing. When spouses are not in agreement about custody of the children, the court establishes custody that is in the best interests of the child or children.

Doctor Divorce Lawyers

Like every father, doctors deserve the right to fair representation during divorce, especially in the circumstances of a custody battle. Our experienced lawyers here at Father’s Rights Law Center® are familiar with the special needs of doctors going through this painful process. We take into consideration the demands of your career and limited availability.

Types of Custody Arrangements

• Joint custody: parents share physical and legal custody.

• Sole physical custody: the child lives with and is under the supervision of one parent. The other parent may often have visitation.

• Joint physical custody: each parent has significant periods of physical custody.

• Sole legal custody: one parent has the right and the responsibility to make the decisions relating to the health, education and welfare of a child.

• Joint legal custody: both parents share the rights and responsibilities to make decisions concerning the health, education and welfare of the child.

We must all obey the great law of change. It is the most powerful law of nature.
