Child Custody and Visitation Law

Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston Child Custody Lawyers

Handling Child Custody and Visitation Agreements issues in Bedford, Fort Worth, Arlington, Grand Prairie, Weatherford, and surrounding cities

When a committed parental relationship ends through separation or divorce, often the most important and delicate issues to address center around child custody and visitation. Emotional bonds with a son or daughter can make it difficult for a parent to consider objectively what is truly in the best interest of the child.

At the law offices of Bailey & Galyen, our family law lawyers understand the special relationship parents have with their children. Our goal is to assist mothers and fathers in developing parenting plans and custody arrangements that respect the needs of the parents and are in the best interest of the children.

If you and your spouse or partner are ready to discuss child custody agreements and visitation rights, contact Bailey & Galyen to schedule a free*, no-obligation consultation. Several of our lawyers are board certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Se habla español .

Custody, Visitation and Parenting Plans

The State of Texas does not exhibit a preference as to placement of a child with a mother or a father. Rather, the court focuses solely on what is in the best interest of the child. Recognizing this, our family law attorneys build cases that demonstrate our clients are the best parents to have primary custody of their children.

Our attorneys regularly work with men and women who have found themselves incompatible in a relationship due to situations involving domestic violence or abuse. We represent men and women in all stages of divorce and separation. From obtaining a temporary custody and visitation order to negotiating the terms of a parenting plan, we strive to obtain results that will strengthen the parent-child relationship.

Modification of Original Orders

Should circumstances significantly change in the lives of a parent or child once an initial order is given, our family law attorneys assist moms and dads with filing for a modification in the custody arrangement or visitation schedule. We also can file for a modification of orders should a parent have concerns regarding the safety or well-being of the child in the other parent's care.
