Denison, Texas Custody Disputes Lawyers
Parents want what is best for their children, but sometimes differing views on parenting or bad feelings toward each other can prevent parents from working out a favorable child custody solution on their own. If you are a parent getting a divorce in Grayson County or are separating from your child's other parent, it can be extremely important to get advice from an experienced child custody attorney.
The Sherman child custody lawyers of Pelley Law Office, L.L.P. have been helping parents with divorce and child custody disputes since 1974. Our goal is for parents to resolve their child custody issues through negotiation, but when an agreement cannot be reached, clients can count on us to protect their interests in court.
Working for the Child's Best Interest
In Grayson County and throughout Texas, the primary consideration in child custody battles is what is in the best interest of the child. It is generally favorable for both parents to play a role in a child's life. However, in typical situations, one parent will receive primary custody of his or her child. Factors that are considered in determining primary child custody include:
- Relationship with the child
- Health, safety and welfare of the child
- Evidence of child abuse
- Parent's work or personal life
- Parent's mental and physical ability to raise the child
- Child's preference if he or she is 12 years of age or older
Our Sherman child custody lawyers will sit down with you to understand your situation and explain your legal options for resolving a child custody dispute and maximizing the parenting time with your child.
We also work with parents in modifying existing child custody agreements.
