Child Custody

Dallas Family Law Attorneys • Dallas Child Custody Lawyer

Going through a divorce can be an ordeal. Emotions run high and tempers may flare, especially when children are involved. The same is true if you have children out of wedlock and need to establish paternity (parentage) and resolve custody issues in court. In Texas visitation is called "possession". Determing a possession schedule for your children is never an easy task, but with a good attorney, your experience can be positive.

Putting Children's Needs First

We take seriously the need to resolve child custody and possession issues quickly and effectively in order to lessen the impact on the child or children involved. We utilize mediation and collaborative law to reduce unpleasant litigation, but are prepared to litigate, if necessary.

We know that you want what is best for your children. We also know that in the heat of child custody battles, a parent's wants may overshadow a child's needs. Our family law attorneys will advocate strongly on behalf of your children. We will make sure your children's needs always come first.

Modifying Child Custody Orders

An original child custody and possession order may not fit the current needs of the parents or the children. If you or your child has a significant change in circumstances, we can help you modify the agreement to fit your needs. Modification of child custody orders can occur if:

  • A parent moves to another city or state
  • A parent loses his or her job
  • A parent marries an abusive spouse
  • A parent is not adequately providing for the child
  • The child's school schedule changed
  • A child needs additional financial support
