The parent-child relationship is sacred. Child custody laws are designed to protect that relationship. In the wake of a separation, it is important that you be able to continue in your essential role in your child’s life.
In Texas, joint managing conservatorship is presumed to be in the best interests of the child wherein parents share essential rights and duties related to the care and decision making for their child. However, if there is an emergency situation involving any danger to the child’s safety such as domestic violence, sole managing conservatorship may be an option. I can help you navigate the web of legal rights and duties that Texas laws grant parents to make certain that you are able to meet the needs of your child based upon your unique situation.
Another important aspect to child custody disputes is establishing your visitation rights. The Texas Family Code sets forth a standard possession order that is commonly used by Courts to give each parent as much time as possible with their child. However, the standard possession order does not work for everyone. I will help you craft and advocate for a possession schedule that works for you and your family to maximize the time you are able to spend with your children.
Whether you are getting divorced or separating from the other parent, or even if you are a non-parent seeking custody of a child that you love and care for, I can advise you as to the best plan of action for your case. I will fight for your right to ensure that you continue to be a vital part of their daily lives.
