Dedicated to Protecting Your Children

We understand that children are the most important thing for parents. That is why we want to take every precaution available to make sure they are taken care of. The case can be difficult and very open, it can drastically affect the lives of the children. Divorce alone can emotionally traumatize them. That is why it’s very important that the case for custody does not follow the same route. Attorneys can help clarify what you’re dealing with and how to maneuver legally in a way that is best for you, but also your children.

What Types Of Custody Are There?

Knowing exactly what type of custody you are seeking for your child is the first detail that we will figure out together. In Texas, the proper term for Child Custody is gaining “Conservatorship” over the children. However, it is relatively the same in this respect. When you work with one of our attorneys, it is paramount that you decide exactly how you want the proceedings to go. The Lawyer will fill in the details of the legal process but the importance of knowing just how much you can offer your child and how long you can support them is critical in building a case for you. There are several options that we will go over just to provide a broad understanding of what you’ll be dealing with.

Full Custody Versus Shared Custody

There are two basic forms of custody for the child but they may be subject to major variance. Just depending on the intentions of your divorced or separated partner, there is no way to confirm that both parties will want the same custody. This is due to a number of factors such as resources, or background history that may affect their ability to raise a child. If these are any of your concerns you can speak with an attorney to draw up the documents and build a case that will detail all of the facts. When you’re looking to gain full custody, this would essentially entail that the parent would gain complete parental control over their child and the other parent would not be allowed to participate any further as a parent. They will not have access and depending on the visitation rights they may not even allow a parent to see them. As for a shared custody case, these can be mutable and are very mercurial. In a lot of cases, one of the parents is given a dominant role. Even if they are not given a large role in custody they are still forced to pay various monthly fees. Some cases will request a unique personalized form of shared custody where they go into the economics of the two guardians and based on time, resources and a general desire to continue parenting, the court will decide when and for how long you’ll be able to associate or raise your child. These are difficult choices and can affect many lives, this is why we encourage that you seek help from an Attorney.

Visitation Rights

The second stage of the custody battle will regard the amount of time each guardian is allowed to see the child. Depending on the custody, whether it is shared or full, the parents will still be able to visit with their child. Even if the other parent is present. This is all, of course, relative to the case. Some families are not allowed to see the child whatsoever. Those cases in particular usually have a lot of conflict and strife which could endanger a child. Whenever that occurs then visitation rights will be suspended or even restricted entirely. Otherwise, it is usually an agreement made between the two parties that suits both schedules.

Do You Need A Custody Lawyer?

There are many reasons that indicate you may need to get a custody lawyer. At the very least it would encourage you to get a consultation. For instance, whether or not your ex-partner has one. If they do, it’s imperative that you get one as well because you will be in an extremely unfavorable position. You could risk losing your child completely. Also, perhaps the case has become more complicated. There are anomalies that make it harder to convey to the court the exact details. Certain events or peoples need to be held accountable in the case. Other examples like you have changed jurisdictions or the court making you, in particular, take treatments or classes apply. All of these issues highlight a need for professional help, simply because of the complexities that separate you from a smooth legal procession. If you feel your ex-partner is not allowing you to see your child or you fear your child may be in danger because of this, please contact a custody lawyer immediately. This is a definite sign that you need a lawful intervention.
