Webster Child Custody Lawyer
There is probably no more difficult time in your life than the dissolution of your marriage. We enter marriage with the best of intentions, and it can be devastating when, despite concerted effort, ending it is the only option available.
When children are involved, it is even more difficult. As parents, we want what is best for our children, and we want to protect them. Determining custody is, unquestionably, the most significant decision of your divorce.
Located in Houston and serving Galveston and Harris County, the Hammock Law Firm works with its clients to determine how best to serve the children’s needs. Whether through skilled negotiation, or assiduous representation at trial, Mr. Hammock offers you dedication and diligence from the beginning of your case to the end.
Child Custody in Texas
As you approach this new phase in your life, you are no doubt wondering what custody arrangements are available in Texas. Generally, the courts want as little change as possible in the children’s lives.
Accordingly, the individual who has had the primary parenting responsibilities — such as arranging the children’s school, doctor’s appointments and church activities — is most often awarded primary conservatorship (custody) of the children. Often, this is the mother. A father, however, is not precluded from seeking custody if he believes it would be in the children’s best interest.
Custody Modifications Lawyer
No divorce decree is truly permanent. If circumstances arise that indicate a change of custody is warranted, a parent can and should request a modification of the original order. Events such as neglect, substance abuse, or interference with a non-custodial parent’s visitation time are all reasons for re-examining child custody.
