Posts tagged "Fathers' rights"

An attorney can help you establish paternity

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.

Factors that affect child custody in Texas

When it comes to child custody in Texas, there are two options: joint managing conservatorships and sole managing conservatorships. These different options are essentially joint custody and sole custody, but some parents, particularly fathers, may be concerned by the idea of a sole managing conservatorship. In such an arrangement, one parent has the final say on nearly every aspect of a child's life, including where the child lives, what medical treatment they receive, education and more.

Fathers' custody chances in Texas

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.

A paternity suit could help you establish your rights

There is a stereotype in both the legal system and our society that women are favored in child custody cases, largely because women have tended to receive sole custody of children more often than men throughout history. This is no longer the case, and courts are moving toward dividing parenting time equally in the event of a divorce. However, one can never quite be certain how a child custody hearing will play out because one or both parties almost always wants more time with their children.

Helping Texas fathers get the custody agreements they deserve

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?

Fathers' rights as they pertain to family law

The term fathers' rights may alarm some people, so it is important to understand the phrase in the context of legal matters. Fathers' rights is not a men's rights movement pushing for fathers to have more rights than they currently do, and it in no way advocates or expects legal treatment to differ based on gender. In fact, it is precisely the opposite, seeking only for both genders to be treated equally when it comes to custody matters.

What rights do fathers in Texas have before a child is born?

Like many states in the country, Texas has come to acknowledge the important roles that both parents play in the upbringing of a child. Because of this, there is a notable shift in the number of joint managing conservatorships, with fewer mothers getting sole custody of their children. Fathers are able to take a more active and meaningful role in their children's lives following a divorce, which is good, but what about fathers who were never married to the child's mother?

We fight for fathers' rights in a divorce case

There is an ongoing debate about the validity of the so-called men's rights movement, with some believing that men are genuinely being slighted in today's society, and others believing it to be a frightened backlash against the growing equality in our nation. As a result, there are differing opinions on the topic of fathers' rights when it comes to divorce cases. Regardless of how you feel about the treatment of men in our society, it is important to understand all sides of an issue before making judgement.

Fathers claim they were denied rights in custody hearing

Six fathers are taking on the state of New Jersey because they believe that their constitutional rights have been violated. The men are claiming that they lost custody of their children without a full hearing, having only been accused of actions or crimes that would make them unfit parents. While the fathers eventually got the hearings for their crimes, said hearings occurred well after they were denied custody, months or even years in some cases.

Know your rights as a parent during divorce

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.
