Our skilled and caring family law attorney Yexenia Gilmet is highly familiar with how to handle cases in which the parenthood of a child is in question. She has aided women and men throughout Houston and the surrounding areas establish the legal acknowledgement of the parental relationships of their children. In addition she has assisted men in obtaining parental rights to their children.
Single dads as primary caregiver are on the rise. According to the 2010 Census Bureau every four out of every 100 households were headed by single fathers-a substantial increase from the past. Due to the greater participation of fathers in the day-to-day care of their children it can no longer be assumed that the mother carries the responsibility alone.
The increase active participation of men in their children's lives coupled with the growth of father's rights advocacy groups has helped men achieve some equality in the courts. The Texas Family Code specifically states that the primary concern when determining custody of a child should be the child's best interest. This standard must be applied without regard to the sex or marital status of the parent or child.
Preference towards women having primary custody of the children has decreased and courts seem to be making an effort to comply with the Texas Family Code.
