Skilled Divorce Representation

Divorce and the following complications can cause emotional duress for all parties involved. Unfortunately, in Texas, fathers experience even more difficulty when it comes to receiving a fair share of court-awarded time with their children after divorce.

As attorneys practicing exclusively in the field of family law, we understand the uphill battle fathers face during divorce proceedings. Keeping parental rights intact as a father is critically important to protect yourself and your children for the future. By standing up for what is right in the first place, you can avoid potential heartache related to losing your rights as a father.

Expressing Fathers Rights in Texas

Texas state laws indicate that both parents receive equal amounts of time and ongoing contact with their children after divorce. However, the reality is that fathers often have difficulty in taking advantage of this right. As a single or divorced father, it is a fight to receive equal time with children, especially with younger children. Regardless of the father’s involvement in a child’s life prior to divorce, continual contact after separation is seen as a privilege that must be fought for, rather than the right that is guaranteed in state law.

The term “fathers’ rights” sometimes automatically provokes an aggressive response. It is important to know that defending your parental rights as a dad does not mean the legal process itself will be combative. Each family law case is unique, and the nature of the case will depend on each party’s individual involvement and personality.

Resolving issues outside of court saves on legal fees and the time spent litigating a case. If possible, it is always recommended to come to a resolution outside of the courtroom. However, not every case can be resolved without the intervention of legal help.
