An attorney can help you establish paternity

| Nov 18, 2015 | Fathers' Rights |

When we talk about fathers’ rights, we often tackle the issue in terms of fathers who are worried about being denied time with their children based on court biases. While this gender bias in the courts is not nearly as serious as it may have once been, that does not mean that fathers will always receive an equal amount of parenting time with their children. However, enlisting the aid of an attorney can help you prove that you deserve to be involved in your child’s life.

A far more frightening prospect regarding fathers’ rights is the idea that you may be denied any kind of visitation or custodial rights with your child because your paternity is in dispute. Though it is not particularly common, it is also not unheard of for mothers to claim that a man is not the biological father of a child in order to prevent that man from having a fair amount of custody. Fortunately for fathers, there are legal options.

Obviously the easiest fix for the issue is simply to take a paternity test and let the DNA speak for itself, but the legal intricacies of such proceedings can be difficult and frightening. The assistance of an attorney can make the process much easier, and help you be sure that you will be prepared for any eventuality.

For one reason or another, the truth is that fathers are at a disadvantage when it comes to children. However, these disadvantages are being overcome slowly but surely, and you do not have to suffer for an unfair custody agreement simply because you are a male. If you live in Texas, and you believe that your rights as a father are being infringed upon, visit our website to learn how you can gain legal representation to help you with your custody issues.
