Child Custody

Dallas, Texas, Child Custody and Visitation Atttorneys

While many divorces end harmoniously, sometimes children are used as pawns in a divorce. The utmost care should be taken to prevent this situation from taking place. At The DeLoney Law Group, PLLC we will fight to ensure that child custody and visitation decisions are made in your child's best interests.

The court awards child custody based on what it considers to be the child's best interests. What does that essentially mean to you? The court usually believes it is in a child's best interest to provide them with a stable and caring home life. Our Dallas, Texas attorneys will strongly advocate for you, and try to show the court that awarding you custody or visitation is in your child's best interests.

The process of determining where a child should live and who should have a say in a child's upbringing is intricate. There is no longer an assumption that the mother should be given primary custody. Both mother and father are considered equally able to raise a child, and in most cases, each parent will be appointed as a "joint managing conservator" for their child. This means that each parent will be responsible for making the major decisions in their child's life. At The DeLoney Law Group, PLLC, we will make sure you appreciate the issues related to:

  • Developing a parenting plan, visitation schedule, or possession schedule
  • Awarding joint, full, or sole legal and physical custody
  • Determining what is your child's best interests
