Father's Rights

Following a divorce, many fathers are concerned about their rights on many issues, including:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Spousal support and alimony
  • Property division

Many fathers think they will be put at a disadvantage — that is to say they fear that the courts will favor a mother in these proceedings. At one time, this was the case. Now, however, the court holds both parents in equal standing. Texas law admits the fact that children are healthiest in situations when both parents are able to have ongoing healthy relationships with their children.

That said, understandably fathers still want trusted advocates when they are working through these issues.

Our attorneys at Golda R. Jacob & Associates P.C. are prepared to help you work through any fathers' rights issues.

From there, we will structure our approach to do everything we can to help you reach an ideal outcome in the most efficient and effective way. We look forward to working with you.
