Most parents are fearful of the effect their divorce will have on their children. Their desire is to keep their children in as stable a situation as possible.
I treat you and your case with compassion and dignity and put your best interests and those of your children at the forefront. I know that your children are precious and that as parents you want what is best for them. To make the process as easy as possible, I offer affordable, high-quality legal help, with free initial consultations. Call me today at 682-234-2006 or email me to schedule your appointment.
I can help you make important custody decisions. First, you need to understand that in Texas custody, what the law refers to as “conservatorship,” involves two main components:
- the legal aspects of childcare, such as decision making about the child’s education, healthcare, and religious upbringing
- the child’s daily physical care and residence.
Unless a history of domestic violence, child neglect, sexual abuse, or controlled substance abuse exists on the part of a parent, Texas courts generally award sole custody or joint custody to the parents. Courts use the “best interests of the child” as the touchstone for determining custody. My job is to present strong arguments and evidence to advocate on your behalf during custody proceedings,.
In divorce actions, many parents want custody arrangements that will allow them to maintain stable contact with their children and remain a meaningful influence in their lives. I understand your desire to spend time with your child, and regardless of whether you are the mother or father of your child, I will fight to protect your rights in the custody process.
I place a high priority on communication. I make myself available when you need to talk, and I work hard to keep you fully informed of all your case’s developments, as well as your options and likelihood of success.
Often later disputes about child custody and visitation agreements arise because the language in the agreement is open to interpretation. I apply my extensive writing and editing experience to draft clear, concise, and enforceable proposals and agreements.
Don’t settle for a child custody agreement that works now but might raise problems when your child is older. The courts don’t make modifications without extremely good reasons. I take the time to answer your questions, determine what your long-term objectives are, and I draft language that will avoid future problems.
