McKinney Fathers' Rights Attorney

Texas Visitation Rights Lawyer

In the past, there may have been a bias in favor of mothers over fathers. There was a widely held and sometimes unfounded belief that, regardless of the specifics of the situation, the child should be raised primarily by the mother. The Texas Family Code specifically directs courts to consider the qualifications of the parties without regard to the sex of the party or the child in determining custody or conservatorship designations and arrangements. Thankfully, in Collin County courtrooms, no bias is evident. Our courts are consistently making decisions based on the best interests of the child. Those decisions could result in favoring the father just as easily as the mother.

At the law office of Barbara L. Jouette, Attorney, P.C., we know that there may still be remnants of the old biases lurking. This is something we are keenly aware of when representing fathers in divorce and paternity cases. With more than a decade of experience on our side, we know how to overcome those biases and do what is right for you.

Fathers' Rights, Child Custody and Child Support

Child custody rights and child support rights should not be dictated by gender. They should be dictated by what is in the best interests of the child. In reality, the history may be that the mother was the primary caregiver. This fact may lead to the mother being granted primary custody, but that is not necessarily the case.

Fathers, we will listen to your concerns regarding child custody and child support and help you prepare for the future. Focusing on your unique situation, lifestyle and values, we will determine the appropriate approach for your case. If that path requires a more aggressive approach to overcome biases that favor mothers, then that is the approach we will take.
