Father's Rights in the District

Low-income fathers can sometimes encounter difficulty exercising all their parental rights. Family law attorneys from Neighborhood Legal Services Program will use scenes from classic films like Crooklyn, Daddy’s Little Girls, and Kramer v. Kramer to talk about child custody law in the District of Columbia and explore how fights over paternity, child support and custody/visitation can interfere with a dad's ability to play a full role in his child's life.
