At Sisemore Law Firm, P.C., our primary goal is to ensure the child custody cases we handle result in an outcome that is in the best interest of the child. This includes making sure that fathers play an active role in their children’s life — physically, emotionally and financially.
It is truly unfortunate that many fathers assume they will not get a fair shake when fighting for custody of a child. This leads many men to forego legal counsel during divorce and child custody disputes. Without an experienced child custody lawyer, many fathers are left vulnerable to making seemingly small mistakes during the divorce and child custody process that can have a lasting impact on their parental rights.
We make sure our clients are aware of their rights and understand all of their options for maximizing custody and visitation. Our many years of combined experience in child custody positions us to efficiently resolve cases in a way that works best for our clients and their children.
It’s true. Historically, many fathers have been stuck with the short end of the stick in regard to child custody and visitation. We’re happy to report the tides are changing, especially in Texas. The state of Texas prioritizes the best interests of the child during child custody disputes and believes shared parenting plays an important role in a child’s overall wellbeing.
That being said, you need to go into custody negotiations fully prepared, and a family law attorney experienced in fighting for father’s rights is your best line of defense AND offense. Whether you’re seeking primary or joint managing conservatorship (custody), or even sole custody in Texas, the child custody attorneys at the Sisemore Law Firm in Fort Worth know what it takes to secure a fair custody agreement for loving and committed fathers in Texas.
In the heat of a contentious custody battle emotions can run high. Anger and heightened emotions lead some parents (both mothers and fathers) to take desperate measures. This may include making false accusations about the other parent (substance abuse, domestic violence, emotional abuse, bad parenting, etc.) in order to tarnish the accused parent’s reputation and compromise his or her custody and visitation goals.
If your ex has falsely accused you of some form of abuse or poor parenting, you do have recourse. You just need a good attorney and the truth on your side. Our team is dedicated to guiding fathers through this process, which requires in-depth investigation and fact-finding to get to the truth. We’ll leave no stone unturned to protect your reputation and custody rights.
Maintaining a healthy relationship with both parents is usually best for children of divorce or unmarried parents who split up. That’s why the Sisemore Law Firm’s father’s rights attorneys are passionate about helping dads negotiate a favorable child custody agreement to best meet their child’s needs.
