Working To Ensure A Meaningful Relationship With Your Children After Divorce
In any custody arrangement, the court’s first concern is the best interests of the child. There is a presumption under Texas law that, unless there is reason to believe the child’s well-being would be at risk under such an arrangement, those interests are best served through a meaningful, ongoing relationship with both parents.
Reaching an agreement on a custody arrangement that provides the access both parents want can be very difficult. Having an experienced lawyer representing you in these matters can help ensure your parental rights are protected. At Jeremy J. Poet Law Firm, PLLC, we have successfully represented clients in Sherman and elsewhere in North Texas on both sides of these sometimes contentious family law proceedings.
Understanding Conservatorship In Texas
Texas law uses the word “conservatorship” instead of “custody.” In a joint managing conservatorship, both parents have some level of decision-making authority over the child. In these arrangements, the court may assign certain rights exclusively to one parent. In some cases, the court may designate one parent as the sole managing conservator and the other as a possessory conservator. This type of arrangement is similar to the traditional custody and visitation model.
We work closely with our clients to understand their goals with regard to access following the divorce. We listen carefully to your concerns and develop a customized plan to accommodate them. We have been successful gaining joint managing conservatorships under some extremely challenging circumstances.
