When parents separate, child custody is often one of the central conflicts. Most parents going through divorce will seek either sole custody or joint custody, and Texas courts no longer automatically grant child custody to the mother — meaning that child custody is often a point requiring compromise and negotiation.
Our lawyers have been serving people in Collin County for more than 40 years. During this time, we have handled a wide range of family law matters — including many disputes over child custody. With our experience, we understand the potentially serious, long-term effects theses disputes can have on your children.
We also help with complex issues such as:
- Fathers' rights
- Grandparent custody
- How to prepare for a child custody battle
- Relocation and modifications
- Same-sex child custody
