Protecting Your Rights as a Parent

Pearland Parental Rights Lawyers

At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we take our duty to protect the rights of parents very, very seriously. Whether you are a mother or father, you have the right to demand time with your children, and to have them delivered as outlined in a child custody ordered by the court or in your divorce agreement.

Sadly, there are many cases in which a court order is violated, and a parent could have countless excuses about why the child or children are not available for court-ordered visitation. There are cases in which there has been an effort to alienate the children from the other parent, and they refuse to visit.

No matter what your issue is, we can help. We have the highest level of dedication to those we represent and share over 100 years of collective legal experience.

Parental Rights: Mothers and Fathers

Fathers who have not been legally acknowledged as being a parent may have to file a paternity case and get DNA testing ordered by the court in order to gain access to a child. Once paternity is established, the father now has the same legal rights to the child as the mother, as well as an equal level of responsibility. If you want to gain access to a child, contact us for assistance in paternity cases.

You may have been accused of being an unfit or neglectful parent; there are many divorce cases that are so bitter that accusations of abuse, neglect or other dangerous conduct are made by the other parent. If not properly fought, you could lose some or all of your access to your children.

In some cases, protective services gets involved, and children are removed from the home. No matter what situation you are facing in which your parental rights are being violated, you can trust our team to get to work and help you fight to regain your access to your children.

We are zealous advocates for parental rights, and we urge you to contact us immediately if you have lost your rights, your visitation rights are being violated, or any other matter concerning parental rights. Call us today at (281) 410-5780.
