Do children need equal time with their fathers?

You would probably agree with the idea that Texas kids need a variety of good role models to grow up into healthy, happy adults. The state family law courts might see your custody negotiations from a different perspective. As a father, you could struggle to get the minimum visitation time your child needs in order to grow up strong.

When you consider tradition, it is no surprise that courts often tend to side with the mothers in divorces. However, times are changing, and your child's situation probably calls for more consideration. You might have to fight hard, but your child's future is worth the effort.

Fathers are now much more directly involved with providing for the emotional, educational and physical needs of their children these days. However, old values still often hold sway in the justice system. You would probably have to show the court how this new paradigm of fatherhood applies to your case if you had hopes for a favorable decision.

You would not be alone in wanting more time with your kids than you might get from a typical divorce agreement. In fact, KXAN in Austin reported on fathers' rights activist groups who are working for equal visitation agreements. This means that there are plenty of fathers across the state who are going through the same thing you are.

The validation of being part of an important cultural movement may embolden you, but you would probably need more than courage to stand up for yourself in negotiations. You would also need an understanding of the statutory law and case history regarding fathers and divorce in Texas. Please do not think of this as legal advice. It is meant as educational material.
