On November 1, 2005, Fathers for Equal Rights, Inc. introduced a revolutionary new Premium Membership to this website. The Premium Membership is an incredible break-through educational tool. The cost is only $50.00 for an entire year. That's less than 15 minutes of time with most family law attorneys!!!

As a Premium Membership member, you will be able to direct an unlimited number of questions to family law attorneys from the comfort and privacy of your home or office. The Ask an Attorney section, a function of the Premium Membership, allows you to get your questions answered by one or more of the 35 Attorneys that volunteer with Fathers for Equal Rights. Each question will be routed to 2 attorneys and answered within 1 business day.

The Online Courses section, another function of the Premium Membership, allows you to listen to prerecorded courses averaging 20 minutes each on several topics relating to family law. We will be adding five to six new courses each year.

I hope you enjoy both the standard Free Membership and the upgraded Premium Membership . Best of luck with your legal issues. Please come visit our Ft. Worth or Dallas office soon.

  • Requiring the courts to consider the cost of maintaining two homes for the child when setting support orders

After blowing a huge sum of money on one of the 'best attorneys' in Dallas, but with minimal progress, I found Fathers For Equal Rights and quickly learned that nobody can know or be as passionate about my case, or my son's well-being, as me.
