Fathers' Rights in Texas
Dedicated Advocacy from a Galveston County Divorce Lawyer
In a divorce, both parents have equal rights in regards to child custody.
Until a parent gives up their rights or is denied custody by the court,
this does not change. While this may seem obvious, many fathers do not
know that they have just as many rights as the mother in divorce. This
unfortunate assumption often leads many fathers to unnecessarily sacrifice
If you are going through a divorce, you do not have to lose your rights
as a father, simply because of social misconceptions or spousal bullying.
My team of Galveston County divorce attorneys at the
Karenko Law Firm, P.A. has dedicated 26 years to the service of families in need of family law
services. With my compassionate counsel and knowledge of family law, you
can rest assured that your best interests will be at the forefront of
what I do and that your rights as a father will not be ignored.
What are my rights as a father?
It is important to understand that you do not lose rights as a father unless
a court ruling has been established reflecting this truth. Until that
day, your former spouse cannot stop you from interacting with your children
in any way.
Common ways that your rights may be violated include:
Separation: If your spouse has removed your children from contact before custody has
been granted, your rights as a father have been abused.
Lack of emergency notifications: As the father, you maintain the right to be notified whenever one of your
children becomes seriously injured or ill.
Denial of contact: If you have tried to contact your children in any way but are being denied,
then your rights have been ignored.
Helping You Keep Your Children Close
Attorney Karenko, have extensive experience advocating for fathers' rights and understand
that a court will consider numerous factors – work schedule, criminal
record, and direct relationship to the children– when it comes to
establishing a final custody arrangement. My firm can help you prepare
a case that supports your wishes and presents you in the best possible light.
Don't leave the court's decision up to the false stories your spouse
may be spinning.
