Yes, judges in Brooklyn can and do award custody and child support to stay-at-home dads who provide for the day-to-day care of their children.
Many marriages feature a parent who has opted to stay home, and while that used to generally be the mother, today’s home is much more flexible because the workplace has become much more egalitarian.
Whether you work from home as a dad or your spouse earned more money and it made sense for you to stay home and save on childcare expenses, you are eligible as a father to win custody, child support, and even spousal maintenance.
Your best bet to achieve these terms is to work with experienced Brooklyn divorce attorneys who know how to craft compelling, persuasive arguments that convince judges of the benefits of the arrangement for your children.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino help stay-at-home dads keep their kids and provide the quality of life they deserve.
