Fathers can provide valuable lessons to their children

The Welsh-born English poet George Herbert is credited as having said that "one father is more than a hundred schoolmasters." And although this idea was put forth well over 300 years ago, it remains true today. Fathers can provide their children with a wealth of wisdom and important information.

How could small acts by father positively affect a child?

It is sometimes said that it is the little things in life that can count the most. A non-custodial father may not realize just how big a contribution he is making to his child's life by doing what seem to be very small things. But what small things might make a big difference in a child's life?

Establishing paternity is an important decision for Texas fathers

Marriage isn't for everyone and it is not uncommon for children to be born out of wedlock. This needn't be a problem as, after all, parents can love their children just as much whether they're married or not. However, it is important for unmarried parents to be aware of their rights, as they may find their marital status affects their legal relationship with their children. This is particularly important for fathers, as they may find that they need to prove their paternity status.

Climate changing for fathers' child custody cases

It’s been a long-held belief, in both society at large and the court system, that mothers are more important in a child’s life than fathers. Child custody cases have reflected and perpetrated this belief for decades, automatically awarding children to the mother even when it might not have been in the best interest of the child. Now, the work of fathers’ rights advocates and a general cultural shift are changing some of these antiquated ideas.

There is a general sentiment in Texas—and the United States—that, when it comes to child custody and spousal support, the courts are biased toward women. That perception is based partly on the long-held notion that children are better off with their mothers than with their fathers. Father’s rights advocates argue that this is an antiquated belief and men can raise children just as well as women. They’ve been fighting this battle in earnest since the 1980s, when the courts were undeniably in favor of women.
