  2. How is child custody determined for fathers in Texas? Child custody in Texas is determined based on the child's best interests. Fathers have the opportunity to seek joint or sole custody, and courts consider factors such as the relationship between the father and child, the father's ability to provide for the child's needs, and the child's preferences if they are old enough to express them.
  3. Can fathers receive child support in Texas? Yes, fathers in Texas can receive child support if they have custody of their children or share custody with the other parent. Child support amounts are determined based on factors such as each parent's income, the child's needs, and the custody arrangement.
