While finances and possessions are one side of a divorce, children’s well-being and support are of the greatest importance. As a Christian family law firm of over 17 years, we have the experience and passion to make sure your children are in the best care.
There are many different things to consider when it comes to child custody and visitation/modification/enforcement issues. Hiring a legal representation can be a great way to make sure everything moves forward smoothly.
Custody and Visitation Issues
Child custody and visitation* issues are critically important, and the attorneys at The Fulton Law Firm take this work very seriously. We understand that parents and guardians have many different concerns, and we work hard to make sure they are heard. We are able to assist individuals with a wide range of child custody issues, including:
- Child custody arrangements
- Child custody modification orders
- Non-parent care of child situations
Visitation is another important issue that must be decided when a couple separates and children are involved. There are many different types of visitation schedules available. These include:
- Standard possession orders (and separate ones for children under three years of age)
- Modified possession orders
- Supervised possession orders
*Note: the state of Texas refers to child custody as “conservatorship” and visitation as “possession.”
Texas Law and Custody
While the state of Texas does not require you to have a lawyer for child custody cases, these matters can be very complicated, and obtaining an attorney can be very helpful. The Fulton Law Firm attorneys have many years of experience working in the courts and handling family law cases of all kinds—including visitation and custody. Texas law places the best interests of the child as the first and foremost consideration in deciding custody matters, so providing the court with information that supports that ideal is critical to getting a favorable verdict.
Some families may opt to try mediation as a method of conflict resolution as opposed to litigation. We have experienced mediation attorneys available if you would like to attempt this type of process. It’s often less expensive, and it’s also a far less formal process. Let us know if you might be interested and we can outline more about how this option works.
As a Christian law firm, we truly want the best for every family—especially when it comes to the children. Please know we’ll do our very best to support the well-being of your child/children in any way we are able. Child custody and visitation issues can be emotional and complicated. We understand. Our attorneys have helped many families work through this difficult time and come to a resolution. Contact our office today to make an appointment and we’ll discuss your specific needs.
