Austin Fathers Rights

Fathers that are facing a divorce or domestic battle should be well aware of the complexities of Texas divorce law that threaten Austin dads’ rights.

An Austin father’s rights may feel violated when the divorce is of no fault of his own but rather due to the misconduct of his wife. The vast majority of divorces are “no-fault,” meaning the marriage is beyond any reasonable hope of reconciliation, but when fault is involved – which, in Texas, includes grounds of adultery, abandonment, and cruelty among others – divorcing dads need to tread carefully.

This is because Texas considers marital misconduct when dividing property and determining the amount, duration, and manner of any alimony payments that may be awarded. So, a key advantage of alleging fault is to be awarded a disproportionate share of the community estate. The spouse alleging fault has the burden of proving it is true at court so it’s crucial to seek counsel that will empower you to protect yourself against accusations.

Cordell & Cordell Is Dedicated To Austin Fathers’ Rights

For the more than 20 years the divorce attorneys for men at Cordell & Cordell have represented fathers in family law matters, we can’t help but notice the challenges consistently facing one side of the table – the men’s side.

Cordell & Cordell fights for fathers’ rights in Austin by focusing on a “dads first” approach that clients appreciate. The Austin dads’ rights movement is not about being anti-mom or anti-female; it’s about fighting for fairness, for an equal opportunity to remain a vital part of your children’s lives post-divorce.

Men are notorious for thinking they are capable for taking care of their own business, but in the high-stakes world of divorce and child custody battles you need a partner you can count on.

Cordell & Cordell lawyers protect Austin dads’ rights every day whether it’s litigating in the courtroom or negotiating a settlement.
