Child Custody & Visitation

Providing clients with Quality Representation throughout Dallas, Collin and Denton Counties Since 2002

Child custody can refer to the ability to make legal decisions on behalf of the child, such as health, education and religious decisions, as well as where the child will physically reside.

In making child custody decisions, the court will always look at what is in the best interest of the child (or children). In most cases, joint child custody (sometimes referred to as “shared custody”) is often found to be in the best interest of the child.

Regardless of whether you are seeking joint child custody or sole child custody, or whether your spouse is seeking joint custody or sole custody, it is wise to seek counsel from an experienced attorney to ensure you understand your rights and that you have the information you need to make an informed decision.

We provide quality representation and our focused practice, along with more than 20 years of combined experience, ensures that you have accurate information and sound advice so you can make informed decisions.

The collaborative law process is typically less stressful on individuals and families, and allows the participants, rather than a judge, determine what is in the best interest of their child (or children).

However, if an amicable resolution is unlikely, we are prepared to go to trial to fight for your child custody and visitation rights.

In addition to child custody disputes, we also handle other divorce and family law matters, including:
