You Can Protect Your Parental Rights

As a parent, the prospect of being separated from your child is unthinkable.

In the face of these trying circumstances, it is crucial to have an attorney who is determined to defend your parental rights.

At our firm, Newsome O'Donnell, LLC, we understand the importance of family. We have an extensive background in helping Morristown individuals preserve their parental rights, and we recognize the unique gravity of these cases. If you fear that your child is being wrongly removed from your life, our lawyers are ready to help.

A Strong Advocate Working On Your Behalf

In the state of New Jersey, both parents are afforded certain rights to their child. Those rights can only be surrendered voluntarily or terminated by the courts — the other parent cannot simply deny you access to your child. As a parent, some of your rights may include:

  • The right to legal and/or physical custody
  • The right to visitation
  • The right to make medical care decisions on behalf of your child
  • The right to decide your child's path of education

In certain cases, paternity must be verified to establish parental rights. Our firm can aid you in this process, and we are proud to work with both mothers and fathers on these matters. We know how special your bond with your child is, and we will advocate fiercely to preserve that relationship.
