Know your rights as a parent during divorce

| Jan 26, 2015 | Fathers' Rights |

Not all parents in Texas remain together, no matter how much they might hope to provide a stable environment for their children. Separation is always hard for families. However, a single parent can still provide just as loving, supportive and stable a home as a couple. Furthermore, in many cases, both parents are still keen to spend as much time as possible with their child and provide for them in whatever way they can.

Either parent can provide a stable home and it can often be difficult for courts to reach a decision on who should have primary custody. The deciding factor is always what is in the best interests of the child. Who is best able to provide for them? Who has been their primary caregiver? Even who is most willing to facilitate the other parent’s involvement in the child’s life. In some cases it is possible to share custody.

The thought of seeing your child less than you are used to can be upsetting. However, it is important to remember that his or her needs have to come first. By showing that you are a suitable and cooperative parent, you may increase your chances of reaching a custody arrangement that works in your favor. Meanwhile, you may also need to settle other important issues such as the division of property and whether either of you will need to make support payments.

Our page on divorce and family law has more detailed information on what you can do if you are worried about a custody battle or you have concerns about other aspects of the separation process. Standing up for your rights is important, both for your own sake and that of your child. An attorney may be able to help you with this and support you as you try to reach a fair and favorable arrangement.
