Understanding Parents' Rights
Parents' rights are a critical part of a divorce. When parents are able to work together, they can make decisions regarding their children together. However, when parents are unable to agree on certain issues, such as where the children will live and how much child support will be paid, the court will need to intervene.
In Texas, parents are granted equal rights when it comes to their children.
The Texas Family Code lays out the rights parents have, including the right to:
- Direct the child's upbringing
- Participate in the child's education
- Provide for the child's health, safety, and welfare
Parents also have certain responsibilities, such as:
- To support the child financially
- To maintain a relationship with the child
Parents are encouraged to come to an agreement on their own regarding child custody and child support. However, if they are unable to do so, a court will intervene and make the decision for them. The court will consider the child's best interests when making its decision. This includes the child's health, safety, and emotional well-being, among other factors. Parents have the right to petition the court if they feel that the decision is not in their child's best interests.
Parents' rights are an important part of any divorce case. At Malcolm Miranda & Associates P.C., we understand the complexities of these cases and know how to help you resolve them in a way that is in your children's best interests.
