Child Custody

Texans in the process of divorce, separation, or determination of child custody should seek competent legal counsel early in the process to clarify parental rights and responsibilities. At Teller Law Firm in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, we have both personal and professional experience with child custody matters. Contact us to schedule a consultation with an attorney regarding your child custody issues.

As we help you prepare for your child custody settlement negotiations, hearing or trial, we will guide you and inform you of key principles of child custody determination, including the following:

  • The initial question to answer in determining which parent will receive primary child custody is, who is the primary caregiver? From there, the question becomes why or why not that person should continue to be the primary caregiver.
  • Child custody and visitation matters are best determined from a child's perspective, not from parents' perspectives.
  • Income is not the primary factor considered in determining who is the primary caregiver.
  • During the process of a divorce or separation, everything a parent does is considered carefully. It is imperative that a father or mother not take rash or regrettable actions which may be used as arguments against custody of children. Things said in anger may be used against a parent in court.

We can help you and your family explore the many parenting plan options available, and come to the best agreement possible for your situation.
