Child Custody

Custody Disputes, Modifications & Divorce in Austin, Texas

Custody battles are the most difficult area of family law. It is hard on parents to share access to their children, but it is even harder on children when parents do not maintain a friendly relationship with each other.

Custody Is Based on the Best Interests of Your Child

Texas courts consider many different factors in determining custody, but they must ultimately decide which parent will provide an environment that will best encourage your child's physical, emotional, moral, and mental development. In order to share custody, it is necessary for both parents to be actively involved in their children's lives, meaning both parents would know about and be involved in the child's education, extracurricular activities, and health.

Courts are hesitant to disrupt the status quo if one parent has been the child's primary caretaker. You will need an experienced advocate in any case. Our child custody lawyer has handled numerous complex and contentious child custody disputes.
