Texas Law And Fathers' Rights

The relationship fathers have with their children is obviously one of the most important in their lives. Following a divorce, most fathers understandably want to maintain their relationships with children and to ensure the children's financial and emotional well-being. Many fathers believe that they have limited to nonexistent rights when it comes to these issues. This is at best a mischaracterization.

With custody and paternity (among other family law issues), Texas courts consider many factors, but their overriding concern is for the best interests of the child. In order to foster this, fathers are given equal consideration in almost all circumstances, barring extenuating circumstances.

If you are a father who is working through any family law issues, it is important to understand your rights, responsibilities and options by partnering with an experienced legal team.
