Mothers’ Rights Lawyer in Deer Park
For a mother who didn’t marry it is vital that you know you automatically have sole custody at the birth of your child. Under the law, both parents share conservatorship of their child while married. Custody issues arise if there is a separation or divorce and there is a disagreement regarding custody. The court encourages joint custody agreements. In custody disputes it primarily considers the best interests of the child. The court’s decision regarding custody will not be based on the gender of a parent but on which parent can provide a suitable environment for physical custody.
Under the law, both parents have a responsibility to see to the well being of their child. Mothers’ rights and fathers’ rights are viewed as equal by the court. A custodial parent has the right to receive child support, be reimbursed for one-half of any uninsured medical expense and have a visitation schedule which works with the children’s schedule. In joint conservatorship both parents share in the decision making concerning education, matters of religion and health care and other important areas of the child’s life.
