Child Custody Issues in Dallas

Child Custody Issues in Dallas

If a divorce involves children, it becomes more about the best interests of the children involved rather than just solving issues between two people. Parents must create a child custody order in their divorce decree that outlines how the children will be raised and what to expect from both parents. It is highly encouraged that clients discuss issues they foresee with their attorney so that they can help them discover amiable solutions. Not only will this hopefully help to reduce conflict in the child's two separate households after the divorce, but it will also allow for a more stable environment for the child.

Important Factors to Consider When Creating a Child Custody Order

At Mathur Law Offices, P.C., we encourage our clients to speak with our Dallas family law attorneys about their unique situation prior to creating their child custody order. This allows us to create a plan that is tailor made to fit their unique situation.
