Collin County Custody Attorney
Helping Parents Protect Their Visitation Rights
As a parent, the health and wellbeing of your children are of the utmost importance. When issues regarding child custody and visitation arise, you may worry about your child’s mental wellbeing. For help resolving a child custody or visitation matter, you need a family law attorney with exceptional litigation skills.
Physical & Legal Custody
When two parents cannot reach an agreement about where their child will live, known as physical custody, or who will make important decisions for them, called legal custody, the issue of child custody is decided in family court. Every decision will reflect what the court considers to be in the best interests of the child. The first step in the process is a mediation to attempt to come to a fair resolution without court intervention.
Child Custody Mediation
Our Collin County child custody attorney at Cross Family Law, PLLC, can represent you in the mediation process and in court when this is the only option to achieve a fair resolution. We understand the extreme importance of these matters, and will do everything possible to support you, your children, your parental rights, and pursue a favorable outcome.
The Best Interests of the Child & Court Decisions
The court evaluates an array of issues when coming to decisions on child custody and visitation. These include, but are not limited to:
- Which parent has acted as the primary caregiver for the child in the past
- The quality of the relationship between the parent and child
- The health and safety of the child
- The current health condition of each parent
- The living situations of each parent
- The financial health of each parent
- Risks regarding child abuse or domestic violence
- Drug and alcohol use, including a history of addiction
Custody Modifications in Collin County
In some cases, child custody and visitation orders must be modified. When the living situation, finances, or other matters may impact the quality of life of the child, a modification to an existing order might be necessary. If you believe your child is at risk, a visitation order is being violated, or any other matter that impacts the lives of your children, we urge you to contact our Collin County custody lawyer to discuss your case.
A modification of a child custody or visitation order requires appearing before the court and presenting evidence to support the changes. At Cross Family Law, PLLC, we are very familiar with what the court must see to rule in your favor.
