Parental Rights


Put Years of Experience in Your Corner

If you are dealing with a family law issue, it is important to understand how your parental rights may be impacted. A parental rights lawyer can help you understand your rights and how they may be impacted by the legal proceedings. Additionally, a lawyer can help you assert your parental rights and fight to maintain an active role in your child's life.

Understanding Parental Rights in Texas Family Law

When it comes to parental rights in Texas, there are a few key things to know. First and foremost, both mothers and fathers have the same rights under Texas law. This means that both parents have the right to be involved in decisions regarding their child’s education, healthcare, and other important aspects of their life.

In some cases, however, a parent may not have legal custody of their child. In these cases, the parent may still have certain rights such as being able to participate in meetings concerning the child or speak with teachers and educators. Additionally, unmarried fathers can establish legal parental rights by signing an affidavit of “voluntary relinquishment” of parental rights which is then filed with the court.

It is important for parents to understand their rights when it comes to parenting in Texas. If you need assistance understanding your rights or enforcing an existing order, contact The Locke Law Group for help.
