Preparing for a Child Custody Battle in the DFW Metroplex

During a divorce, one of the most hotly contested issues is the care and custody of children. If you and your spouse have been unable to come to any kind of agreement regarding child custody, it is important to prepare for the dispute and take important steps to protect yourself and your children during the process. An experienced attorney may be able to help make your child custody battle easier.

At the Shapiro Law Firm, in Plano, Collin County and Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, we appreciate the emotional difficulties that come along with child custody disputes and how draining these situations can be for everyone involved, including the children. We also know that when dealing with these types of expensive and contentious issues, some of what gets damaged in a child custody battle may never be fully repaired.

Our firm works hard to provide representation that is not only effective but also is compassionate, respectful and is done with the best interests of the children in mind.

Important Steps to Take Prior to a Dispute

Before taking any actions, it is always advisable to try to work out your child custody arrangement with your spouse. The more that can be agreed upon, the easier the process will be on everyone. If cooperation is not working, however, there are important steps to take prior to a dispute.

One of the most important steps to take is to get the support and representation of an experienced lawyer. With more support, you'll be able to move forward in your child custody dispute with more confidence and make important decisions regarding the future of your family. It is also important to make note of any issues and concerns that you have about you and your spouse that could impact the custody agreement in any way.
