Custody Basics

We understand how the courts approach child custody. Texas policy for child custody places emphasis on children needing quality time with both parents. To that end, the courts typically name both parents as joint managing conservators, providing each with joint custody. This shared parenting approach allows each parent to maintain positive relationships with the children.

We have represented many fathers pursuing extended legal rights. We can discuss your reasons for pursuing custody and whether they have merit. Our legal team provides guidance based on the limits of the law. We also evaluate cases based on the best interests of the children.

We can provide personalized representation tailored to your needs and goals. We can assess many factors that may help prove your case to the court. These assessments can include:

  • Your parenting methods
