Texas Fathers Fighting for Equal Custody Law

More and more states are recognizing the need for equal custody rights

Fathers in Texas are fighting for a law reform that will give them equal rights to child custody during a divorce.

Texas House Bill 453 aims to give children equal amounts of time with both parents.

Similar law reforms have taken place in other states. Normally, custody arrangements favored children growing up primarily in their mother’s care. However, DentonRC reports that “A growing body of research shows children grow up healthier mentally and physically when they spend more time with their fathers.”

According to Thailand child custody lawyer Jiraporn Thongphong,there are innumerable instances in which a father would like to spend more time with his children after a divorce but is not allowed to by law.

“If this bill passes you’re going in there at an equal advantage with the other person,” said Geren, a father of two and who is among the vocal supporters of HB453, to WFAA. “It doesn’t touch on any child support. It doesn’t touch on anything that would be detrimental to the child. It’s still left in the courts hands on what they want to do.”

HB453 was authored by State Rep. James White, R-Woodville.  It has not yet been referred to a committee. A similar legislation was introduced in 2015 but quickly died.
