Mothers’ Rights in Texas
Put Your Trust in Our Spring Family Lawyer
Parenting rights can be of a great concern for divorcing couples –
who should be awarded custody? What rights do parents have? In the state
of Texas, a child’s mother is automatically seen as a legal parent.
As your child’s mother, however, you have the right to establish
paternity on behalf of the child’s father to collect child support.
If your rights are at risk of being violated, you should retain representation from the
Law Office of Bryan Fagan. Our firm is focused on
family law matters, which allows us to give your case the personalized attention
it needs. Attorney Bryan Fagan is a member of the Texas Bar College, which
is an achievement that reaches only less than 10% of lawyers in Texas.
Our office is available 24/7. Call the Law Office of Bryan Fagan at (281)

What are my custody rights?
It’s important to remember that a
divorce does not automatically grant the mother custody rights. Before a custody
order is given, a judge will look at the case and decide what type of
parenting arrangement would best suit the needs and interests of the child.
Issues such as abuse, unverified paternity, and high-conflict separations
can complicate the validity of mothers’ rights – in these
cases, a mother can file a protective order.
Seeking a protective order can do the following:
- Grant the mother custody
- Restrict the fathers’ visitation privileges
- Order the father to pay child support for up to one year
