All You Want Is A Level Playing Field
If you are a father who is going through a divorce, all you want is for the court to treat you as an equal. Today in Texas, fathers’ rights are treated with more respect than in the past, but the playing field is still not always level. As you might already know, fathers often are viewed only as a source of income, which leaves them feeling marginalized.
As a father, it takes a highly customized, creative approach to level the playing field in the courtroom and achieve the results you need for you and your children.
As a father himself, our founder, Orlando Kell, knows that your rights as a father are extremely important to you and your children. That is why, at Kell and Quilty, PLLC, we offer effective legal counsel to fathers for divorces, custody, visitation and the enforcement and modification of divorce decrees.
Things You Must Consider
Divorce triggers complex legal issues, including child custody, child and spousal support, and the division of assets and debt. After a divorce process has begun, you need to consider many or most of these questions:
- Who will get child custody rights?
- Who will be responsible for paying child support and health insurance for the children?
- What debts will I solely be responsible for?
- Am I eligible for spousal support?
- How will this affect my taxes?
It is a daunting list. To deal with it effectively, you need experienced legal help from an attorney who focuses on family law. When we on your side, you benefit from our vast experience advocating for fathers.
A Big Issue: Custody
At many divorce proceedings, custody is the biggest issue; both parents have the right to seek custody and visitation with their children. When the court awards sole child custody, it means one parent receives exclusive physical and legal custody. In joint custody arrangements, the parents share the decision-making for the children and often split the parenting time.
At our firm, we will guide you through the custody and visitation issues, and we will explain your options and protect your rights.
