Fathers’ Rights in Texas
The state of Texas has written into law that “children will have frequent and continuing contact with parents who have shown the ability to act in the best interest of the child and to encourage parents to share in the rights and duties of raising their child after the parents have separated or dissolved their marriage.”
Simply put, a father’s right to act as a caring parent does not begin and end with marriage. If you are not married to your child’s mother or are in the midst of a divorce, an experienced child custody attorney can help you fight for your paternal rights and for what is in the best interests of your children.
