They are Your Kids Too
Divorce is a tough time. And for any parent who has been served with divorce papers, now faces the uncertainty of the role they will play in the life of their children. Some may say that Texas is a mommy state, meaning that women are more likely to gain custody than men. This is for a variety of reasons. Some might believe that being the male makes you the breadwinner and does not leave father time to take or pick the kids up from school. As such, the female may seem like the better candidate. This is not fair to the father as he loves his children and deserves to play a role in their lives. Dads have come a long way. Lately, it seems like there is not an automatic decision that the mom will get primary custody. Although when younger children are involved, the mother’s may tend to grant the mother custody. It’s may not be likely when older children are involved; dads have a real shot at 50-50 custody.
