Pennsylvania fathers' rights: Jesse Williams fighting for custody

Being a dad can be one of the most rewarding experiences in a man's life. Unfortunately, some dads in Pennsylvania and elsewhere find that their fathers' rights are not taken into consideration during and after the divorce process, and that gaining fair access to their children is harder than it should be. This is something actor Jesse Williams is said to be feeling.

Jesse Williams filed for divorce in April 2017 after nearly five years of marriage. He and his wife have yet to reach a dissolution settlement. One of the things holding up the proceedings is the matter of child custody. The couple shares a son and daughter. Mr. Williams claims that, despite wanting a joint custody arrangement, his wife is refusing to give him fair access to his children.

According to a recent report, Jesse's time with his kids is limited to about two and a half hours a day and sometimes it is just rejected. His wife is also refusing to allow his children to sleepover at his residence. As a father who says he has always been present and active in his children's live, there is no doubt that this current arrangement is rather difficult with which to deal.

Many fathers in Pennsylvania are going through the same thing that Jesse Williams seems to be going through right now. Fighting about child custody puts a strain on divorce proceedings, and having one's time with one's children limited can affect the parent-child relationship in the long run. Having an attorney who fights for fathers' rights at their side when going through the dissolution process may help them as they seek fair custody arrangements.
