How Texas fathers can increase their chances for 50-50 custody

The modern trend in divorce and child custody involves the parents sharing their children equally. In other words, Parent A will have the children half the time and Parent B will have the children the other half of the time. These arrangements are now more common than ever, but that doesn't mean it's guaranteed. Parents who want to have 50-50 child custody -- especially fathers -- should take some proactive measures to increase their chances of receiving a joint custody ruling.

Here's what fathers can do to help their child custody cases:

Contact a Texas family law attorney

A family law attorney can advise parents about their chances of getting joint custody and how to pursue this kind of custody in court.

Continue being a "dad"

No matter what happens in your separation and divorce, take every step you can to continue being a father. Be there for your children, help take care of them and provide for them financially. This will show the court that you're a willing and capable parent.

Pay your child support

It's vital for fathers to always pay their child support on time and never miss a payment. Missing a child support payment can hurt a father's chances to pursue custody.

Keep a child care journal

Maintaining a child care journal will create proof of the parental responsibilities you have completed as a father.

Get your home ready

Make sure that you have a comfortable home for your child.

Stay goal focused

Fathers may want to write down their child custody goals and stay focused on achieving them. Perhaps your goal is to have your child live with you part-time every week. Whatever your goals, keep your eyes on the prize, as it will help you stay clear about your decisions.

Whatever your situation, if you're a Texas father who wants to pursue joint custody of your children, our law firm is available to help you protect your parental rights.
