Helping Assert Fathers’ Rights
Many fathers who are not married to their child’s mother are concerned that they will not be granted parental rights, or possible not even allowed to see the child. While in the past, many courts sided with the mother, current trends show judges and courts granting more equal rights between the parents.
Representation For Single And Divorced Fathers In Texas
At the Law Office of Irene G. Mugambi, P.C., we are committed to advocating for fathers who wish to establish paternity and build a healthy and nurturing relationship with their children. We understand the obstacles that can come in the way, as well as the best strategies for establishing our clients as the father of the child and gaining the parental rights they are entitled to.
The father must first complete the process of legitimation, providing proof and documentation that he is the biological father. We will assist you in seeking the paternity tests and other documentation you need to legally prove this. In doing so, you can establish paternity of the child.
After paternity has been established, the father may choose to seek fathers’ and custody rights. This will allow the father parenting time with the child. Similar to divorce, there are often negotiations surrounding the extent of custody, visitation and decision-making authority that will be granted to the father. Our attorneys are highly successful in helping fathers gain the time they need to build a relationship with the child. If you are granted visitation rights, however, you will also likely be obligated to pay child support to the mother.
