Father's Rights Archives

What should Texans avoid doing before their divorce is finalized?


The end of a marriage is a time of tumultuous change for everyone in the family, especially if the couple has children. It may be tempting to make rash decisions, especially in heated moments. However, such decisions could be very costly down the road when it comes to settling issues such as child custody (known as conservatorship in Texas), property division and spousal maintenance.

Can a parent interfere with their ex's parenting time?


Sometimes when parents in Texas divorce, the bitterness and rancor they have with each other lasts well after the official divorce decree is signed. When a divorcing couple has children, a parenting plan will be established that is supposed to meet the needs of the child. Unfortunately, parents may not always follow the plan. While sometimes unanticipated changes may need to be made, other times a parent purposely interferes with his or her ex's parenting time.

When may a father contest the adoption of his child?


Generally, for a child in Texas to be adopted, both of the child's parents must consent to the adoption. This can be an issue if the child's biological father is not married to the child's mother, and the child's mother wants to give the child up for adoption. Fathers in this situation may want to object to the adoption. However, in order to do so, paternity must be established, and the father must show he is committed to raising the child.

Fathers across the country are fighting back


Father's rights regarding child custody have become a hot topic across our nation. As such, many different groups and movements have popped up along the way, all with one purpose--to bring the family law court system to its knees and prevent suitable parents from being stripped of having a relationship with their child.

Unmarried fathers in Texas may need to establish paternity


Sometimes, a child in Texas is born to parents who are unmarried. However, that doesn't diminish the active role the father may want to play in his child's life. Children deserve to have the love and support of both parents. Therefore, in order to seek custody and visitation rights, an unmarried father must first establish paternity.

How can paternity be established?


Fathers play an important role in the lives of their children. They provide for their child's physical needs and emotional needs, and serve as both a parent and a role model. Unfortunately, when an unmarried father in Texas breaks up with his child's mother, the child's mother may try to keep him from seeing the child, even if it is not in his best interests or the child's best interests. Therefore, unmarried fathers may want to seek child custody or visitation rights. However, before they can do so, paternity must be established.
