Helping Texas fathers get the custody agreements they deserve

| Jul 9, 2015 | Fathers' Rights |

Across the country, many fathers are still concerned about their visitation and custody rights in the event of a divorce. It is a fear to which nearly every father can relate: will I be given fair treatment in a custody hearing? Will the courts deny me joint custody because I am a man?

This fear is not entirely irrational, as courts have historically awarded sole custody to mothers more often than fathers. However, in modern times, it is not nearly as great of a concern as it once was. In addition to a general decrease in discrimination throughout our country’s legal system, it has been widely recognized that keeping both parents involved in a child’s life is better for the child.

Generally speaking, unless there is a serious issue that indicates that they are unfit for parenting, fathers can expect to receive a reasonable custody arrangement in modern times. Of course, it is still up to fathers to demonstrate that they are fit parents, which can be difficult if the child’s mother is attempting to deny custody or paint the father in an unfavorable light.

Custody disputes can get very heated as parents battle to spend more time with their children. Unfortunately, this can sometimes lead to increased animosity between the parents and cause them to lose sight of what is truly best for the child in favor of what is best for them. This is why legal representation is so important in custody disputes.

As a law firm, we pride ourselves in providing legal representation for fathers who are seeking custody, helping them prove why their parenting is vital to the well-being of the child. Visit our fathers’ rights webpagee to learn more about how we can help Texas fathers with their custody disputes.
