Fathers’ custody chances in Texas

| Sep 25, 2015 | Fathers' Rights |

For many years, all across the country, when sole custody of children was awarded to a parent, that parent was almost always the mother. There were many reasons that this may have occurred. Perhaps it was because the father was the primary wage earner and would have less time to care for a child, while the mother spends most of her time at home and could provide the child with the care it needed as it developed. While this may once have been true, it is not the case in modern times.

The history of child custody has led some fathers to fear that they may be facing bias when seeking custody of their children, but if such a bias ever did exist, it is slowly becoming phased out.

In Texas, there are many factors that go into determining child custody, and those factors are widely available to anyone seeking the knowledge. Courts take into consideration the well-being of the child and evaluate how much parents can contribute to this well-being based on their parental history, activities they pursue and even the locations of the parents’ respective houses if they live separately.

The truth is that fathers in Texas have just as strong of a chance as mothers when it comes to gaining custodial rights. Gender is not nearly as important as demonstrating that you are a fit parent who will always put the child’s needs above all else. That is where legal assistance can be critical to your case. Enlisting the aid of an attorney can help you prove to the courts that you have a history of providing for your child and that you deserve to be a significant part of the child’s life.
