Child custody attorneys know how to protect children's rights

In a divorce, children are caught in a crossfire of harsh words and often suffer psychological wounds due to contentious actions between their parents. A Texas resident would agree that any divorce has the most impact on the children involved. Children want to be with both the parents under the same roof but eventually realize that it cannot happen. Parents often forget the best interests of the child when they are caught in a bitter divorce battle. A seasoned attorney understands the emotions raging through the family and tries to minimize the damage to children in a child custody battle.

In Texas, like in most states of the country, the best child custody arrangement is presumed to be joint managing conservatorship. In this kind of arrangement, the child spends an equal amount of time with each parent. The child may also live with one parent and spend a lot of time with the other.

In another choice of child custody arrangement, the child may live with one parent and the other parent may not have a lot of contact with the child but at the same time is involved in major decisionmaking processes. Sole custody may also be an option in Texas.

The attorneys at Gunnstaks Law Office work hard in order to protect children's rights. If one parent is using a child as a weapon, a seasoned attorney will know how to proceed and document the circumstances and obtain a stay order. The attorney will also undertake a thorough investigation in order to ensure that the other parent can be a worthy participant if the court orders joint managing conservatorship. If there is a history of domestic violence or drug abuse, our very experienced attorneys will work to unearth and bring the facts of the case to light in the hope that the best interests of the children are protected.
