Child custody among frequently contested issues in Texas divorce

Texas married couples who choose to divorce often face many challenges where the future care of their children is concerned. Child custody is typically a highly emotionally charged topic that often leads to contentious debates between former spouses. If one spouse refuses to cooperate, the other may determine a need for seeking legal intervention in the matter.

Most parents want what is best for their children. However, each former spouse may interpret that differently. In order to make decisions regarding the future care and upbringing of children after divorce, skilled negotiation and compromise is often necessary. To avoid emotional outbursts and raging courtroom battles, the guidance and assistance of experienced family law attorneys is often sought.

Many have said that their positive court outcomes hinged upon aggressive and effective representation. By allowing a family law advocate to act on one's behalf, a parent can ensure that he or she is able to exercise parental rights while protecting the best interests of any and all children involved. Although the court typically has the final say with regard to child custody, visitation, spousal support and other divorce issues, an attorney can help make certain the court hears a parent's concerns and acts according to state and federal laws that govern such matters.

In Texas, Jamie Graham & Associates, PLLC prides themselves on putting children first when addressing child custody and other related issues in court. A child's physical and emotional needs, as well as future stability and ongoing, interactive relationships with both parents, are among the priorities most often addressed when determining future parenting arrangements. Anyone with questions or concerns regarding such matters may contact our office for answers.
