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 available options. 

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.

Texas has what's called a "Possession Order" that says when each parent (or sometimes a nonparent) has the right to time with a child.  There are several types of possession orders in Texas:

  • Standard Possession Order

  • Modified Possession Orders

  • Possession Orders for a Child Under Three

  • Supervised Possession Orders

However, Texas law defaults to the Standard Possession Order unless there are mitigating circumstances. You can view a copy of a Standard Possession Order Here to see what conservatorship may look like for you.

There are other considerations to take into account when crafting a possession order that your attorney can help add into your Final Order, including but not limited to:

  • Holiday + Vacation Possession

  • Extracurricular Activities

  • Long-Distance Travel

  • Custody Exchanges

  • Violence

  • Homelessness or Jail Time (for one of the parties)

  • Unique Possession Schedules

Our child custody practice includes:

  • Original Child Custody Determinations

These issues can be quite difficult to handle on your own due to the legal complexity and emotionally-charged nature of the proceedings. It’s best to consult with an experienced family law attorney in your area.
