Dallas Child Custody Issues

Divorce Attorney in Dallas, TX

A divorce decree is not just a divorce decree when there are kids. The decree, or child custody order, serves as an outline of how the children will be raised and what they may experience from both parents. Clients are encouraged to discuss their concerns with their lawyer to forecast what issues may arise and work out rules and solutions to them in the decree. This will allow the child to have a more stable and productive environment as well as provide conflict resolution tools to prevent disruption in the child's two households.

What Factors Must Be Considered When Creating a Child Custody Order?

As such, clients are encouraged to consider the following factors with their lawyer and to include or omit provisions as may be tailored to their case, their needs and that may advantage their position at later points in time.

These are some of the issues clients should discuss with their lawyer at an appointment or during a phone conference:

  1. Right of first refusal

Because each of these topics require lengthy and detailed explanation, no attempt to explain or understand these concepts will be made by email or in lengthy written form. Instead, these concepts require an "old fashioned discussion" between the lawyer and the client.
