Child Custody

The Woodlands Child Custody Lawyer

When families reside together, the roles each parent takes in raising their children have sometimes become routine with little overlap necessary to accommodate the daily needs of the children and the employment schedules of the parents; but typically both parents have become accustomed to seeing their children daily. When the parents separate, they find themselves juggling their own employment schedules, some establishing an employment schedule that was non-existent for several years, with their continued or new child care responsibilities, and new social life, mixed with the emotional trauma they are experiencing resulting from the termination of the family unit and the realization that they will most-likely not be seeing their children daily.

These adjustments being made by one parent are frequently not aligned with the adjustments being made by the other parent and conflict soon arises. It is not always easy or comfortable communicating with an ex-spouse regarding decisions affecting the children when communication in general between the parties has become difficult. It is not always easy to recognize the worth of the other parent to a child from the eyes of an angry or hurt parent who is emotionally distraught from the break up of the marital relationship. The best interest of children may become disguised by the perceptions of one or both parents who are experiencing physical or emotional turmoil.

Child custody disputes could involve issues regarding the allocation between the parents of the decisions the parents are authorized to make on behalf of the child and the manner in which those decisions may be made. The family law quarrel could also revolve around the decision as to which party will be awarded the right to designate the primary residence of the child and whether or not that residence should be restricted to any geographic area. An integral part of the process for resolving family conflicts also concerns addressing the possession schedules between each parent and each child or terms and conditions associated with each possession period during the parties' separation and post-divorce.

Tackling the many aspect surrounding the conservatorship and possession of children may initially be difficult or even overwhelming for the parties necessitating the assistance or appointment of attorneys, counselors, parenting coordinators, Amicus Attorneys, or mediators to break down the issues into manageable terms.
