Child Custody Guidance And Assistance

Child custody matters are generally among the most contentious and emotional aspect of a divorce. Unfortunately, the parents may not agree on what is best for the children. This can be resolved in court through litigation or at a table during negotiation, depending on the needs of the case and those involved.

The Law Office of Philip W. Moore, Jr., handles a wide range of disputes involving family law matters, including child custody. An attorney with extensive experience in litigation, Philip W. Moore, Jr., has a deep understanding of the custody laws here in Texas, and possesses the necessary assertiveness to resolve disputes in a positive manner, but he also knows he represents a parent acting in the best interest of the children now and in the future.

How We Can Help

The issues that affect child custody are as unique as the children and parents involved. We help parents find solutions by considering the following:

  • The relationship between the children and each parent
  • The parents' lifestyle and parenting capabilities
  • The work schedule of each parent
  • The wants of the children if they are older
  • The parents' financial circumstances

Modifications May Be Necessary

We strive to create parenting plans and custody agreements that work both in the present and in the future. However, we also understand that unexpected events sometimes need addressing through a petition for modification. Whether it is relocation for a job, a change in employment, a debilitating illness or other matter, we can work with you to update your agreement.

Emergency Or Temporary Custody Orders

Unfortunately, there may be extenuating circumstances that put the children in dangerous or complicated situations. The court system is set up so that parents can represent themselves in a temporary orders hearing, but legal guidance from a knowledgeable family law lawyer can be extremely helpful. We have had great success in helping parents when the child is in immediate danger; we also can help secure temporary orders to resolve financial issues during the divorce process. We can also protect a parent's custody rights if Child Welfare Services has become involved.
