Deer Park Child Custody Attorney

Information on Child Custody

One of the most contested and volatile parts of the divorce process are the decisions about what will happen with the children. Child custody can lead to a drawn-out court battle that is not good for the children - or the two parties involved. Additionally, the ultimate decision of child custody will also affect who pays what for child support. Because of these difficult negotiations, it is essential that you hire a Deer Park divorce attorney when going through a divorce that involves children.

If your case goes to court, you will find that the courts are not interested in hearing about who did what to whom. Their goal is to do whatever is in the best interest of the child, and to move the case through as quickly as possible. In these instances, it is important that you have an attorney who will represent you and make sure you voice is heard in court. There are several types of custody that are common in the state of Texas:

  • Sole Custody: One parent has the main responsibility, and usually receives child support from the other parent, who may also have visitation.
  • Joint managing custody: Major decisions and costs are handled by both parents.
  • Primary joint managing custody: While both parents are involved and make decisions, one parent has more decision-making power and responsibility. This is usually the parent that receives support.

If you have a particular reason why you think your spouse should not have joint custody with you, such as serious concerns about the safety of your children, you need to hire an attorney to represent you and make sure your concerns are voiced and heard by the judge. Your child's safety and well-being is the court's main concern, and how your case is presented can significantly affect the final decision on these crucial issues.
