Navigating Child Custody with Care and Expertise

The issue of child custody is one of the most delicate and important aspects of a separation or divorce. At Alexis Allen Law, we understand the emotional and practical complexities involved in determining custody and visitation arrangements for your children. Our goal is to help parents find solutions that are in the best interests of their children while also respecting the needs of the parties involved.

Understanding Texas Child Custody Laws

Texas law recognizes two types of custody, or conservatorship: joint managing conservatorship and sole managing conservatorship. While joint managing conservatorship is commonly granted, sole managing conservatorship may be considered if one parent’s circumstances potentially jeopardize the child’s welfare.

Conservatorship encompasses various rights related to your child, including the determination of their primary residence and decisions regarding their education and health. We believe that agreements made between parents are often the best solution, as they are more aware of their children’s needs than a court. However, in cases where an agreement cannot be reached, it becomes essential to have an experienced attorney to represent your interests and those of your child.

Custody Agreement

Determining child custody and possession is a sensitive and complex process. It is crucial to establish a detailed and enforceable order that will serve the best interests of your children for years to come. Alexis Allen’s expertise in child custody law ensures that your case is approached with the utmost care and dedication, aiming for a favorable outcome that reflects the best situation for your children.

Child Support in Texas

An integral part of any child custody case is child support. Texas uses specific guidelines to calculate child support, which is typically paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent. This amount considers the income of both parents, the number of children, and other specific needs. In situations where the standard guidelines may not be appropriate, our team can assist in seeking a deviation to better fit the unique circumstances of your case.
