Child Custody

Your children are the most important part of your life. We understand that child custody disputes are often the most challenging and emotionally jarring part of any family law dispute. Our priority is ensuring that you are aware of the best options for your children. 

Conservatorship (Custody) will be set up under the state mandated Standard Possession Order, unless there are exigent circumstances, like abuse or neglect. You can view a copy of a Standard Possession Order Here to see what conservatorship may look like for you. 

Child Support Guidelines are set out in the Texas Family Code, which determines the calculation of child support based on your gross wages, monthly health insurance payment for the children and how many children in the family you have. Child support will be 20% of the obligor's gross wages (minus Texas Guideline deductions) for one child and it builds from there the more children you have. 

We will walk you through the legal steps, explaining costs, consequences, and your rights in the child custody dispute. We focus on understanding your priorities so that we can advocate for you and your children’s best interests.
