Are You A Dad In The Middle Of A Divorce?
Gender roles and expectations have changed over the past several generations. These changes have significantly impacted fathers and mothers facing divorce. Today, both parents are likely working, and ideally, both parents have played a substantial role in the life of their children. These modern trends impact fathers in terms of child support payments, spousal support and child custody.
The attorneys with The Ramage Law Group strive to help fathers retain a close relationship with their children after divorce. Sometimes it is more appropriate for the children to reside primarily with the father after divorce because the father is the more stable and consistent parent. Sometimes it is appropriate to equalize time between the father’s and the mother’s residence. Each client’s case is unique based on the parents’ and the children’s circumstances. At The Ramage Law Group, our attorneys help fathers create parenting plans to help both parents be equally involved in the day-to-day lives of their children, and in some cases, custody of their children if that solution that is best for the children.
How The Right Divorce Attorney Can Help Fathers
While most Texas courts no longer automatically award custody of the children to the mother, divorcing dads still face some hurdles in gaining shared legal and physical custody of their children. However, our child custody attorneys recognize the importance of both parents to their children’s stability and future. Our legal team can help you find ways to demonstrate your parenting involvement, including:
- Keeping a diary of your daily hands-on activities with your children – including extra-curricular activities, education, day-to-day parenting responsibilities, and involvement with medical providers
- Maintaining your usual parenting duties, such as transporting to school or helping with homework
If you were already an involved parent before your marriage was troubled, there is no reason for that involvement to go away after your divorce. If you believe your children should primarily reside with you, the child custody attorneys at The Ramage Law Group can help evaluate your situation and represent your interests.
