Protecting The Rights Of Fathers

The old stereotypes about parenthood no longer ring true. The image of the father as the breadwinner and the mother as the caregiver is a thing of the past. However, some of these old ideas may still linger in the legal system and impact how family law cases are handled. Fathers may be perceived as playing less of a role in the child's life, and that could impact child custody arrangements. For this reason, it is important for fathers to enlist an attorney who understands how to make the reality of the situation clear during the legal process in order to ensure that the relationship between father and child is protected.

A Continuation Of The Current Father-Child Relationship

Fathers should rest assured that, while old biases may linger, Texas law is ultimately on their side. The law states that decisions related to child custody should be based on the best interest of the child, and it is typically agreed that what is in the child's best interest is to continue having a strong relationship with both parents.

At Law Office of Michella K. Melton in McKinney, we want to help you achieve child custody arrangements that allow you to continue having a strong relationship with your child. If you are the parent who spends the most time with the child, the parent who takes the child to school and attends after-school activities, the parent who helps with the homework, we want that to continue. We will take the time to learn about your current relationship, and we will work to see that child custody arrangements allow that relationship to continue.
