Colin Amos stopped by Sports 750 The Game to discuss all things family law. During this appearance, Colin covered everything from a Pennsylvanian woman’s attempt to get a divorce by calling 911 to legal questions from husbands and fathers.
One question Colin tackled is a common concern among fathers facing a breakup. The question came from Portland and inquired, “My ex and I have a child together and were never married. She has relocated to another state. Do I have a say in where the children live? What are my rights as a father?
As a Portland divorce attorney, Colin provided some advice on the situation by highlighting how easy it is to unintentionally set a bad precedent. Fathers going through a breakup will often try to salvage the relationship and concede to give their partner space. The partner will often take the kids and stay with friends or relatives for a few months. Unfortunately if the reconciliation isn’t successful, a new routine has already been established and a precedent is set.
Colin suggests that fathers proceed with caution during a breakup, once a new precedent has been set, it can be difficult to revert the situation. Every relationship has its own set of unique circumstances and Colin suggests discussing your situation with a family law attorney before the relationship comes to an end.
