Austin Child Custody Lawyer
Children do not typically have a voice in the divorce process, especially if they are under the age of twelve. At Newberry Law, P.L.L.C., we are committed to protecting the psychological and emotional well-being of the children. Child custody cases are lawsuits that affect the parent-child relationship. Our firm’s Austin child custody attorneys are especially aggressive in the courtroom and assertive at the negotiating table when dealing with your children and your relationship with them.
Are you going through a divorce and have concerns about child custody arrangements? Contact our firm today to arrange your consultation with Austin Child Custody Lawyer, Joe Newberry to learn more about your options.
Standard Texas Parenting Plans
Child custody decisions in Texas usually result in the establishment of a “joint managing conservatorship.” That means both parents have legal custody of the children and one parent has physical custody. Legal custody refers to decisions that are made about the children’s education, health care, religion and other matters. Physical custody refers to where the children live. The non-custodial parent shares in the rights and duties of raising the children. The non-custodial parent can agree to almost any amount of possession (commonly known as visitation) time with the children, but most of the time he or she is awarded standard visitation or expanded standard visitation.
As your Austin child custody lawyer, we can offer you the following:
- We will attempt to minimize the negative affects of divorce on your children.
- We will secure expert resources to help you and your former spouse reach a creative custody and parenting plan that works for you and your children even if it is not based on Texas guidelines.
- We will go to court to obtain an attorney or guardian for your child if the age of your child and the nature of your case require it.
- We will talk to you honestly if what you want to do is not in the best interests of your child.
Creative Parenting Plans
We pride ourselves on our creative thinking and ability to provide unique solutions to unique problems. Parenting or child custody plans can be much more flexible if you can reach your own agreement without taking your case to a judge or jury. Mediation can be a valuable tool in reaching this type of agreement. Austin Divorce Lawyer, Joe is never afraid to try something new, and has helped many satisfied clients achieve parenting plans that are outside the norm.
