Amarillo Child Custody Lawyer

Child custody can affect the outcome of several issues in divorce proceedings. Who will receive child support? Who will remain in the family home? The most important thing to consider in resolving child custody issues is the well-being of the child, but making sure that your parental rights and your finances are protected is crucial as well.

By working with an experienced Amarillo child custody attorney at Werner Law Offices, you can get the representation you need to set you and your family up for success.

How Is Child Custody Determined In Texas?

Texas child custody laws presume that a "joint managing conservatorship" is the most effective custody arrangement for the child's best interests. When both parents are appointed as managing conservators, they have equal right to make decisions and receive information related to the child's health, education and welfare. Joint managing conservatorships are only useful in cases where both parents are equipped to provide a safe, stable environment that is free from violence and allows the child to interact with each parent.

Beyond legal decision-making, the child's primary residence and the time that the child then spends with each parent must be determined. When a child is very young, this decision is left to parents and the court, but as the child gets older, he or she may be able to influence the outcome. Even after a divorce is final, an experienced lawyer can help you modify or enforce agreements when circumstances change or one party is not following through.

Werner Law Offices can help you understand what custody arrangement is right for your family's unique needs as you work through complicated divorce proceedings or handle post-divorce child custody and visitation matters.
