Child Custody

Custodial issues in family law cases involve matters like conservatorship, parental rights and duties, possession and access, and visitation, all of which play a crucial role in ensuring the well-being of the child….

What can I ask for from the court?

Every case is fact specific, so it is important to make sure your attorney is aware of all of the issues involved in your case. From there an attorney can better advise you as to what is most appropriate to ask for in your case. It is important that you have a base understanding of what the various terms mean so you can best articulate what you are hoping to achieve from your case. Some of the terms you should familiarize yourself with are: conservator, possessory conservator, parental rights and duties, and possession and access.

What type of cases involve these issues?

If you are currently married and seeking a divorce (I have this as a hyperlink to my divorce page) that involves minor children, then these issues will be brought up in your petition for divorce. If you are not married but have children with the other parent, then your suit affecting the parent child relationship (I’d like to have a hyperlink to this page, which has not been created but is attached to this ticket request) will also address these issues. If you already have a final order in a divorce or suit affecting parent child relationship and are seeking to modify (I have this as a hyperlink to my post divorce modifcation page) your current orders, then it is very likely that these some of these issues may be encompassed in your suit for modification.

How can I prepare for these types of hearings?

The best way you can prepare is to get as much tangible evidence as you can to provide your attorney with at the outset; this includes easily obtainable items such as: text messages, emails, photos, recordings, etc. If you do not have access to documentation that you believe is relevant to proving your case your attorney can use the discovery process to try to obtain important evidence. It is important to discuss with your attorney what documentation you have or believe may exists so that you can work together to prepare your case.
