Father rights in Texas

Texas legislature fails to pass equal custody law.

A Fathers rights group in Texas says the state needs an equal custody law as detailed in a story from KXAN.  Unfortunately the Texas legislature failed to pass a bill that would have allowed a court to grant joint custody or equal parenting time unless it was not in the best interest of the child. That is shameful in an allegedly “Red State” like Texas and is just more evidence that neither political party has any interest in Fathers Rights or the broader issue of the rights of non-custodial parents.

“AUSTIN (KXAN) — Mothers and fathers in Texas are continuing to fight for equal parenting laws.

Several of them were in Austin Wednesday to get more information about the state’s child support division and custody laws. The Texas Fathers’ Rights Movement says too often, parents are unable to get equal visitation time with their kids during a separation or divorce.

“We’re advocating for people that want to be a part of their kid’s life, that want to see them,” Jason Davis, one of the organizers with the Texas Fathers’ Rights Movement’s Facebook page, said. “Of course you can’t see them all the time, but we’re mainly advocating for 50/50 parenting.”

HB453, filed during the 2017 legislative session, would have allowed the court to grant equal parenting unless it was against the best interest of the child. It did not make it through the full legislative process.

“We get that once there’s a separation or divorce, somebody else is going to enter their lives,” Davis said. “But ultimately, we’re their dad. We’re their mom. We just want to be a part of their lives.”
