Help for Colorado Fathers
Fathers Are Important to their Children and Must be Active and Involved in their Upbringing
Fathers are important. Fathers are parents and their children need them in their lives. Not just for financial support — Fathers are not just a paycheck. Children need their fathers for emotional support, guidance, education, physical care-taking, role modeling and, sometimes, just to be there and care about them. When parents separate, fathers frequently must fight to remain a part of their children’s lives — a significant and meaningful part. Martin Law Firm can help.
