The Woodlands Father’s Rights Attorneys
Let Our Experienced & Skilled Legal Team Protect Your Rights & Best Interests
When dealing with divorce matters, the traditional mindset was that a child’s mother is the natural caretaker and nurturer and should, therefore, have custody and primary access to a child. But times continue to change, as do family dynamics, and fathers are continually credited for being just as active in raising their children as mothers – in some cases, even more so. However, the playing field is not level, and married and unmarried fathers still need effective representation when establishing their rights to be a part of a child’s life.
With more than 50 years of combined experience, The Woodlands father’s rights lawyers at Morgan Bourque Attorney at Law will give you honest answers and secure the best possible terms. As the attorney of record in several Texas court rulings on divorces and fathers’ rights, Morgan Bourque uses his knowledge and experience as a former prosecutor to find the solutions that will work best for you, even if he must take your case to trial.

Father’s Rights & Child Custody in Texas
In regard to child custody matters and decisions related to a child, Texas adheres to the standard of “best interests of the child.” In other words, no matter what either parent desires, the judge will decide in support of the children’s well-being. However, the court encourages both parents to be involved in raising their children, so a workable joint custody arrangement is generally the desired outcome.
If joint custody isn’t an option, a primary custodian – who the child will live with – will be determined. Both parents are evaluated according to their ability to raise their child and involvement in their child’s life, rather than gender.
A father could be named a child’s primary custodian, while the mother would be designated the noncustodial parent and granted visitation. When our legal team is on your side, we can make sure the father’s rights are recognized and upheld throughout the custody dispute.
