What Are My Rights to See the Kids?

Fathers are sometimes denied the right to see their children when a relationship ends. A mother may even move away making it all but impossible to maintain close ties with the children. We often get the question from these dads: What are my rights? We can tell you that the courts will generally allow you to see your children.

We have represented fathers facing custody issues in divorce proceedings as well as unmarried fathers for more than a decade. At The Law Office of Ryan C. Moe, PLLC, we treat you as an individual and tailor our legal representation to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.

Myth Versus Fact

It is generally a myth that mothers automatically receive custody of the children. The Texas Family Code does not favor either mothers or fathers. Depending on the age of children, it can be more common that mothers receive greater custody awards, but this is not always the case.

Our attorneys can advise you on the requirements of the code and explain your available options. If you are an unmarried father, we can explain paternity requirements as well as potential child support obligations.

Our representation is always customized to meet your needs. We will make a strong argument for a workable solution that takes into account your rights and the best interests of your children.
