Friendswood and Galveston Child Custody Lawyers
Visitation • Joint Custody • Grandparents' Rights
Despite the sad reality of discord between parents who are divorcing, separating, or already divorced or separated, the wellbeing of children depends in large part on good communication between caregivers. At the APFFEL LAW FIRM, we advise clients to include their children's other parents as much as possible in plans and parenting matters of all kinds: education, health care, social life, travel plans, and other aspects of child-rearing.
Temporary Child Custody Orders
Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation regarding child custody issues resulting from your separation or divorce. If you are planning to initiate a divorce soon, a temporary court order can help prevent confusion and dissension regarding children's whereabouts through the divorce process. The Texas Family Code provides a typical visitation schedule that serves as a useful guideline for many separating parents.
Texas Mediation and Child Custody
Many clients have ideas or goals regarding joint custody and visitation that vary somewhat from state child custody and visitation guidelines. We encourage the use of mediation to help bring about workable, mutually acceptable settlement agreements that take into account unique family situations, without court interference.
In the Best Interests of Children
We best represent parents who have their children's best interests in mind at all times. To schedule a consultation with a Webster, Alvin, and Pearland family lawyer regarding parental rights, child custody, and visitation matters that your family must confront, contact a Texas child custody attorney.
