We Believe 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.

The founder of Martin Law Firm, Brett W. Martin, Esq., is licensed to practice law in New York and Colorado and is the sole shareholder and managing attorney of Martin Law Firm.  Brett is an advocate of fathers wanting to be actively involved with the parenting of their children and is a Father's Rights Attorney.  He is a grandfather and has four children of his own.   Brett has personally experienced the heartbreak of divorce and family breakup and formed the firm in 1996 to provide dedicated, quality and professional representation to fathers involved in custody and visitation or parenting disputes.  Contact Brett for further information and assistance.

This site provides information and guidance to fathers facing or going through divorce, child custody, visitation, paternity, child support and related family law legal proceedings in Colorado.  Martin Law Firm understands that, for many fathers, having to fight for their children is one of the hardest, if not the worst, time in their lives.  Martin Law Firm helps fathers get through this difficult time.

  • New Jersey Supreme Court Changes Standard in Relocation Cases

    August 18, 2017 by Robert Franklin, Esq, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization

    The New Jersey Supreme Court has struck a blow for kids, families and common sense (NJ.com, 8/10/17). In the case of Bisbing v. Bisbing, the Court ruled that, when a parent with primary custody wants to relocate with the children, she may only do so if she proves that relocation is in the children’s best interests.

    Given the current state of the law on child custody, that should have been nothing but the obvious, but in the Garden State, it wasn’t. Before the...

  • The New Yorker Shows the Mess that is CPS

    August 17, 2017 by Robert Franklin, Esq, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization

    Larissa MacFarquhar at The New Yorker is to be congratulated for this fine article on the child protective and foster care systems in New York (New Yorker, 8/7/17). The piece is long and covers most, but not all of the bases. What’s most powerful about it is that it takes time to hear from most of the players in the child protective and foster care systems. It shows the situation from many points of view, it brings home the hopelessness of a governmental...

  • Rinaldi: Mothers Have No Identity

    August 16, 2017 by Robert Franklin, Esq, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization

    Karen Rinaldi’s major failing is her belief that sacrifice can never be done willingly, even joyfully. Her mother told her that motherhood is “all sacrifice,” which of course is utter nonsense, otherwise, why would so many women do it and with such enthusiasm? I have the sneaking suspicion that, had it been anyone in the world other than her mother, we wouldn’t be burdened by Rinaldi’s article. That her own mother sees motherhood as all sacrifice must have touched a nerve in her daughter. Why...
