Child Custody in Texas

Except in cases involving abuse or neglect, courts presume that some form of joint custody is best for children. That is, the child will live part of the time with both parents who will share parental duties, such as making educational choices or medical decisions.

However, the courts often award "standard possession" or primary custody to one parent, with a defined visitation schedule for the other one. The custodial parent is generally barred from moving out of the jurisdiction with the children. The court gives children 12 and older the chance to explain which parent they would prefer to live with, but the court makes the final decision.

Finding Solutions in Your Best Interests

The attorneys at our firm help negotiate child custody agreements involving equal or approximately equal time and decision-making abilities. The courts will generally honor the agreement as long as it is deemed to be in the best interests of the children. We can act as mediators, as counsel in collaborative law negotiation, or in traditional negotiation to create a workable parenting plan.

If no compromise can be reached, the court will determine custody, visitation, and child support. We have the trial experience to litigate aggressively on your behalf to protect your rights.

Paternity, Grandparents Rights & Adoption

We have experience in paternity (parentage) claims, and various custody claims of fathers, grandparents, or other individuals seeking visitation rights or shared custody. We also help women seeking to establish paternity to compel child support.

In certain cases, courts may award standard possession to grandparents in cases involving abuse or abandonment. We also handle uncontested stepparent adoptions and private adoptions to help clients overcome any legal barriers.
