Fathers' Rights With Child Custody In Texas

While Texas does not have legislation that's explicitly pro-dad, fathers today are gaining traction in child support and custody cases. Judges no longer automatically give the mother full custody, due to a generational mindset shift that favors joint parenting with active mothers and fathers. For dads, joint custody provides valuable one-on-one time with kids, who get to grow up knowing their dad is actively involved in their lives — and not only just through monthly child support payments.

Custody battles can get bitter. To reduce your stress and improve your odds of a favorable outcome, hire an attorney who understands how to advocate for fathers. At W. Tyler Moore, PC, our attorneys have a proven track record of obtaining good outcomes for dads, who have the following legal rights and obligations:

  • Physical custody of children
  • Primary child custody if in the best interest of the child
  • The right to discipline, make educational decisions and raise according to religion or moral codes
  • Monetary or physical support to provide for the child's care
