If you are looking for a family law attorney to fight for your rights and safeguard your children's best interests, you need the assistance of an attorney who has extensive experience fighting for the rights of fathers and understands the devastating emotional impact on the children when they are alienated from either parent.
My firm's focus is advocating for the children first and helping the court realize that fathers want to be more of a part of their children's lives and many times want more of a 50-50 type sharing arrangement in co-parenting with their children.
I am a divorced father. I know what it takes to go through a family law battle-- personally and professionally. That fact alone makes me more compassionate and understanding towards your position as a father who loves his child or children. Because I have a child of divorce, and because of my extensive work with Pathways, a counseling group started by Dr. Phil McGraw in Las Colinas, I am also well trained at understanding the dynamics between both divorcing parents and their children and how children are emotionally impacted in divorce.
Fathers Rights is an issue that is more subjective. The approach will vary by each court and Dallas, Tarrant, Denton, Collin, Ellis and Kaufman Counties will vary by jurisdiction on how they approach this issue. Some courts are more conservative and thus traditional in their approach looking at the mother as the primary caregiver. Other courts are more progressive and look at co-parenting as a joint task that can be split evenly, even with younger children.
