Custody and Visitation | Support Disputes | Stepparent Adoptions | Termination of Parental Rights | Relocations and Move-Aways
Even though the laws have changed and there’s no longer the presumption that mothers are better able to nurture and care for minor children, most dads still feel like second class citizens with the courts, and often with their children. If you are the father of minor children and you’re going or have been through a divorce, you want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to ensure that all your rights are protected.
At Bailey & Galyen, we’ve fought for the rights of fathers in divorce proceedings for more than 30 years. The lawyers in our family law practice offer more than 200 years of combined practice experience to men and women across Texas. We know that the loss of daily contact with your children can be emotionally devastating, so we’ll work hard to ensure that you play a meaningful role in your child’s growth and development. We built our practice on a commitment to personal service and attention. Your needs are always our first priority. We’ll work hard to be available and accessible whenever you have questions, and we’ll strive to return your calls and e-mails in a timely manner. We’ll keep you up-to-date on all developments in your case, as well as your options, so that you can make informed decisions about your future.
Our Fathers’ Rights Practice
We aggressively represent men in all types of divorce and family law proceedings, including:
- Divorce actions—We’ll work to secure a divorce decree that grants you equal access to your children, and that maximizes your opportunity to play a positive role in your child’s upbringing
- Custody and visitation disputes—We’ll work to ensure that any custody and visitation agreements, while in the best interests of your children, also promote your involvement as a parent. We’ll tenaciously advocate for you if your ex violates custody and visitation agreements or wrongfully refuses you access to your children, or attempts to relocate without your permission.
- Protective orders and allegations of domestic violence—We’ll defend you against unfounded or false allegations of domestic abuse or violence, and any attempts to prevent access to your children
- Termination of parental rights proceedings—We’ll advocate for you if your ex seeks to terminate your parental rights for the purposes of a stepparent adoption or for any other reason.
