Father's Rights Attorneys in Denton

Understanding a Fathers Rights in Texas

For a father to have rights to their child they must be the legal father which is typically misinterpreted as the biological father. In Texas, being the child's biological father does not grant legal rights and a father could face legal challenges when considering custody, visitation, or in child support disputes.

Texas law requires that all decisions made regarding custody are based on the best interests of the child. At The Law Office of Gregory C. Goline, we have seen the various ways in which fathers are unfairly treated and work to level the playing field. Your child's best interests remain our top priority as we navigate the complexities of the family court system, and you can rely on us to fight on your behalf.
