Experienced Houston, Texas, Grandparents' and Fathers' Rights Lawyers

Over 20 Years of Experience

For thousands of children in Texas, grandparents are a significant and even primary source of love, care and support. In many cases, grandparents literally take on the role of parents.

Unfortunately, divorcing parents often forget about or ignore the importance of grandparents in their children's lives. When this occurs, grandparents and children lose important parts of their families.

Fathers Have Significant Rights

Fathers have significant rights when fighting for visitation, support and custody, as well as in situations involving:

  • Being listed on birth certificates
  • Rights outside of marriage
  • Establishing paternity when the mother is still in the hospital

Understanding Grandparents' Rights

At the same time, though grandparents' rights in Texas are not automatic, Texas courts can and often do take special circumstances into account. Concerns such as a child's physical and emotional welfare are open to consideration, and Texas family courts consider the impact on a child whose parents have significantly impaired the child's well-being. In short, when it is the right thing for grandparents to get involved in their grandchild's life, the law provides this opportunity.
