Protecting Your Relationship With Your Children
Child custody issues can arise in a divorce or following the breakup of an unmarried relationship. When your relationship with your child is at stake, it’s important to seek the help of an experienced and compassionate attorney.
The family law attorneys of The Law Offices of Steven M. Williams handle all issues related to child custody, which is known as conservatorship in Texas. We will work to craft a plan that meets your goals and protects the best interests of your children. We will also represent your financial interests when determining child support.
Who Will Have Custody Of Children?
Texas courts favor joint custody, or conservatorship, of children, believing that frequent contact with both parents is in the best interests of children. In most cases, one parent will be the primary conservator and have the children most of the time. However, 50-50 conservatorship is possible. Sole conservatorship is rare, except in cases of abuse or other issues that threaten the health and well-being of the children.
Our lawyers will help you craft an agreement that works for your family. We are committed to helping your and your ex reach an agreement through negotiation or mediation if that is possible. Litigation is a last resort, since it can have lasting negative effects on your children and your relationship with your ex.
Our lawyers also handle modifications to child custody orders if your family’s circumstances change.
