It has been said that any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a “Daddy”. While every child deserves a “Daddy” the realities of life are that this just is not possible and a large part of every family lawyer´s business is fighting to assert or take away a Father´s Rights.
A father and a mother have equal parental rights until a Court says otherwise and the father has these rights the second the child is born. He does not have to go to Court to get rights. Just as a mother has parental rights by birth of a child, so does the father. In Texas fathers are allowed the same parental rights as mothers, while Fathers have the inherent right to spend time with their children, a father’s parental rights do not end there. He is also allowed to be a part of decisions affecting his child’s future, just as mothers. A father’s right to love, nurture and protect his child are fundamental and imperative for his child’s well-being. Stated another way:A Mother and a Father are equal in the eyes of the law and a Father has the SAME RIGHTS as the mother until a Court says otherwise.
