Mothers’ Rights Lawyer in Burnsville
Representing Mothers throughout Minnesota
As a mother, you should understand your parental rights. Many people think that courts favor the mother and have a bias toward mothers when assigning custody. Nowadays, however, courts are not biased toward one gender. That said, you have the right to financial support from the father of your child.
Our experienced Burnsville mothers' rights attorney has helped mothers in the Minneapolis metro area and throughout Minnesota protect their rights and secure stability for their families since 1992. We can help you, too.

Determining Custody & Acquiring Support
The two most common issues that mothers come to us about are child custody and child support. Both single mothers and divorced mothers face custody and support disputes. When determining child custody and child support orders, the court's primary focus is on the best interest of the children involved.
While a single mother is automatically recognized as the custodial parent of a child born out of wedlock, there are situations in which that custody can be challenged. For example, abandonment, domestic abuse, and being shown unfit to care for the child can all result in a mother losing custody of her children. If you are in this position, secure aggressive legal representation from a mothers’ rights lawyer in Burnsville who understands how these cases are handled in Minnesota.
We Work Hard to Facilitate Positive Outcomes
In Minnesota, neither parent is given preference when determining child custody, and family law is gender-neutral. Both the mother and the father can bring an action against the other for child support, custody, or visitation. Whatever your situation, our Burnsville mothers’ rights lawyer can help ensure that you receive the support you need and that your rights as a parent are not violated. When you need compassionate legal representation, choose Burns Law Office.
