Child Custody

Child Custody: Working For Your Child's Best Interests

When children are involved in a divorce proceeding, it is important to always keep their best interests in mind when it comes to reaching an agreement on child custody. In fact, if parents are unable to reach an agreement, the court will attempt to decide what is in the child's best interest by using a number of different factors. Ideally, you and your soon to be ex will be able to put your personal differences aside and agree on a plan that everyone can live with.

When it comes to child custody and visitation issues, I will take the time to listen to your goals and serve as an advisor who can help see beyond the emotions of your divorce or modification case. To schedule an initial consultation, call my law office in McKinney at 972-529-5707

Legal Custody Vs. Physical Custody

There are two types of custody that a court may grant to a parent. Legal custody refers to the power to make major decisions on behalf of a child, such as those concerning religious upbringing, education and medical care. Legal custody may be granted to either one or both parents. Physical custody refers to where the child is expected to live the majority of the time and will often be granted primarily to one parent. However, times are changing and 50/50 custody is becoming more popular. I will advocate for what you think is best.

In every custody case, it is my goal to help children through a tumultuous time as smoothly as possible. I work hard to help parents keep their children at the forefront of their decisions while working toward amicable solutions whenever possible.

I am not afraid to fight for what you want and I do not resort to going to Court just so I can use your money.  We go to Court when there is no other choice, and that decision is yours.
