Trusted Guidance For Custody And Visitation Matters

When married parents divorce or unmarried parents split up, custody and visitation issues must be addressed with care and sensitivity. At JB Schwartz PLLC, we understand that there is no legal issue of greater importance than one that affects the parent-child relationship. We understand the profound emotional stakes of custody and visitation cases and handle them with the great care that they require.

Creating Custody Agreements That Work

We carefully analyze all the factors and family dynamics at play to craft a custody and visitation agreement that is best for all parties involved. Important considerations include:

  • The capacity of each parent to provide for the children
  • The age and health of each parent
  • Which parent has been the primary caregiver
  • The nature of the relationships between parents and children and between siblings
  • Special needs of the children

The custody agreement will have a profound impact on your parent-child relationship, affecting where the child lives, how many weekends in a year you or your spouse are given, and how holidays are divided up. The agreement will designate one parent as the custodial parent and the other as the noncustodial parent.

Complex issues are sometimes a factor in custody agreements, such as emancipation of a minor. In the state of Texas, only minors that are 16 years old are allowed to seek emancipation by the court. In addition, grandparents’ rights to visitation are not a given in the state. It comes down to whether you and your spouse believe visitation with grandparents is best for your child.

We understand the importance of family, and as experienced divorce lawyers, we are dedicated to protecting your role in your child’s life to the greatest possible extent.

Resolving Custody Disputes

When disputes arise over custody and visitation, emotions can run extremely high. We believe that the best way to resolve these disputes is to work together to reach agreements that serve the best interests of the children. While we avoid aggressive litigation whenever possible, at our essence we are courtroom advocates and always prepared when there is no other way to protect our clients’ parental rights.
