Working Toward Favorable Custody Resolutions

When couples with children divorce, emotions run high. The stress can be tremendous. Anger and intense worry about the future often cloud parents' judgment, especially when they do not understand Texas law or how courts make decisions that affect children.

At Woodley & Dudley, our attorneys know the intense stress that you are under when facing a child custody dispute. While it may seem like your family is breaking apart, we want you to know that you will still be actively involved in your child's life. Not only do we have an in-depth understanding of all relevant laws and workable solutions, but also attorney Emily Miller is a certified ad litem attorney with extensive experience representing children's interests in complex cases, which she can use to help you protect your child's best interests.

Finding Agreements That Last

We approach these cases with the care and compassion that you should expect from your law firm. We genuinely want to help you and your family find workable solutions to these difficult problems. Some of the issues that we assist with in these cases include:

  • Discussing the "big picture" items such as who will be involved in making major decisions for the child
  • Resolving questions concerning child support, including expenses related to child care, health insurance, as well as educational expenses and college tuition
  • Parenting time schedules, including who will be able to spend time with the child during important events
  • Determining a method of addressing conflicts that may arise to prevent them from impacting the child

We make every effort to work together with the other side to try to keep the dispute as stress-free as possible. Agreements that result from the extensive cooperation of both parents often are much better for the children.

We know, however, that sometimes your co-parent will do everything in his or her ability to make this case impossible to resolve. In the event that this is happening to you, we are ready for trial from day one. We are not afraid to fight for what we believe in, and will do everything we can to help you achieve a positive result.
