Family Law Lawyers Looking Out For The Rights Of Fathers
Contentious family law disputes can prove difficult for fathers. Fathers understandably worry that the process will not be fair for them when it comes to custody, visitation, paternity and child support issues.

At Amick, Stevens & Gadness, we will make sure the courts take into consideration your needs and wishes.

We will be there at your side from the moment we first meet with you at our office until complete and final resolution of your family law matter.
Strategic Representation For Fathers In Divorce And Custody Cases
We represent fathers in a wide variety of family law matters, including:
- Divorce: We represent fathers through litigation, mediation, and negotiation concerning property division and other family law and divorce issues.
- Child custody and visitation: Dissolving a marriage becomes even more complex when you have children. An experienced lawyer can make a significant difference in preserving your relationship with your child. There is a presumption in Texas law that fathers and mothers alike will be fit parents. Determinations concerning child custody and visitation revolve around what is in the best interests of the children.
- Child support: Both parents must contribute financially to the well-being of the child to the best of their abilities. It is not up to the father to provide entire support or not be the recipient of child support payments.
- Post-judgment modifications: In the event a decree limits your right to be a part of your child’s life, we can work toward modifying such orders.
We understand the rights and obligations of both parents in divorce matters, and we will fight hard on behalf of you, as a father, to obtain the best possible outcome. Our goal is to help you maintain decision-making authority when it comes to raising your children. When there can be no settlement of disputes, we have the litigation skills to advocate on your behalf in court.
Our attorneys and staff have the knowledge and experience to represent fathers throughout the family law process. We can advise you concerning your rights and resolve disputes in a manner favorable to you.
