Child Custody Disputes In San Angelo

Smith Rose Finley November 3, 2017

Should You Retain a San Angelo Family Lawyer? Why?

One of the hardest parts of a divorce is creating a parenting plan, complete with a schedule and terms for child custody. Child custody is often one of the most contentious and stressful parts of a divorce, particularly because both parents want to stay involved in their child’s lives as much as possible. Determining what roles both parents will have and how they will perform them is often the source of substantial disagreement, especially when the relationship between both parents has already been strained by the divorce itself.

Sound like a difficult task? Without help, creating an effective and mutually-agreeable parenting plan may be difficult or even impossible.

Legal Representation Can Make the Difference

Child custody disputes can arise for many different reasons during and even after a divorce. Both parents want to be involved in their child’s upbringing and be a part of their experience growing up, despite the necessary split from the other parent. Whether you’re having trouble determining a fair and mutually-beneficial way of handling child custody during your divorce or need to negotiate modified terms any time after, having an attorney on your side can assist you in receiving your desired outcome.

An attorney can provide you with several things during a child custody dispute, including:

  • Qualified knowledge of child custody laws and procedures in order to make sure your rights as a parent are maintained
  • Experience presenting arguments, including why you should be allowed to continue to see your children and be part of their lives on a regular basis
  • A watchful eye during the process, in order to make sure you aren’t being unfairly presented by the other parent in an attempt to win favor from the judge
  • A mediator who can assist you in obtaining a custody arrangement that fits your schedule and your desired visitation amount

Changing Child Custody Terms

Just because you have created a finalized parenting plan does not mean it will stay permanent and finalized forever. Over time, you may need to make modifications to your parenting plan, and those modifications can open up disputes between parents. A qualified attorney can also help you modify your parenting plan, including representing you to make sure your right to be a parent to your children is not infringed.
