Dallas Fathers' Rights Attorney

Assert Your Rights: (888) 867-5191

As a father, or soon-to-be father, you are probably well aware of your responsibilities to your child as to providing financial and emotional support, establishing ethical and moral guidelines, providing love, protection, and more. Do you also know what your rights are in the event of a divorce or breakup?

If you are facing such a situation or have a question about paternity issues, you need competent representation from a Dallas family law attorney who will help you to understand the options which are open to you.

A property division agreement, child support order, or child custody agreement which is unfair may not be in your or your child's best interests. An experienced fathers' rights lawyer at our Dallas firm is fully aware that a father's companionship and guidance is crucial to a child's well-being and is prepared to help you in reaching an agreement with your spouse or co-parent.

What Are My Rights as a Father in Texas?

Texas family law courts generally prefer to have parents arrive at agreements on issues outside of court. When agreement proves impossible or the agreement is clearly not in the child's best interests the court will decide.

Here are some of the rights you have as a father:

  • Custody and visitation: Few issues are as hotly contested as child custody and visitation rights. Texas law does not favor the mother over the father when awarding custody rights. Even if a father does not have primary residential custody, he is entitled to parenting time with the child.
  • Child support: The father is not solely responsible for supporting the child financially. Child support obligations can be equitably divided between the mother and father in some circumstances.
  • Unmarried parents: If the father is not married to the mother, establishing paternity can allow the father to seek custody and visitation rights.

If you are facing a dispute and want to asset your rights, a fathers' rights attorney with the Mathur Law Offices, P.C., is fully prepared to fight aggressively to protect you. Our firm serves clients in Dallas, Fort Worth, Denton, Tyler, and the surrounding communities.
