Fathers’ Rights


When a divorce or separation divides a family, fathers are often expected to take a back seat in child custody arrangements. This is not only old-fashioned thinking, but detrimental to the children involved — kids are better off when their father is a strong presence in their lives.

I am Bobby Dale Barina, an experienced family law attorney and strong advocate for fathers in Harker Heights, Killeen, throughout Bell County and surrounding Texas communities. If you are a father concerned with protecting your relationship with your child(ren), I am here to provide you with the knowledgeable advice and strong advocacy you need.

Protecting Fathers’ Rights In Texas

Texas law favors situations in which children maintain meaningful relationships with both parents. Children need strong fathers in their lives, and child custody and visitation arrangements should reflect this reality.

Every case is unique. In some situations, I fight to help my clients obtain increased visitation privileges. In other cases, the child may be better off living with the father full time. I will work with you personally to gain an understanding of your goals. I will give you realistic expectations and work hard to achieve the best possible outcome.

I also handle paternity matters for men wishing to establish their status as fathers. Whatever your legal needs, I am here to guide you through the legal process and protect your parental rights.

I understand the issues that arise when deployment and active duty impact your ability to spend time with your children. I employ creative solutions to help military fathers remain a strong presence in the lives of their children.
