Compassionate Lawyers Here For You And Your Children

Whether you are seeking a divorce or are in the process of finalizing one, our team at The Love DuCote Law Firm LLC is here to help you prioritize your children’s needs. A divorce can be especially stressful for children who watch their parents part ways while having to adapt to a new lifestyle they might not be emotionally prepared for. It is likely that you — the parent — are just as concerned with how often you will get to see your children once the divorce is finalized. While settling custody matters is not easy, the load can be lightened with the strong mediation and negotiation skills of an experienced family law attorney.

Our firm understands that family legal issues put children in a difficult position, and we are here to help protect the best interests of your young ones. With combined legal experience of more than 40 years throughout Fort Bend County, our team is dedicated to helping children maintain strong ties with their parents. Not only can we help you establish custody or conservatorship at the time of divorce, but we can also help you adjust to any unexpected life changes that may require you to modify existing orders.

Understanding How Custody Rights Are Granted

In Texas, there are several factors that the court takes into consideration before granting custody. They include:

  • Emotional needs of the child, both presently and in the future
  • The possibility of physical danger for the child
  • Parenting capabilities of both parents
  • The stability of each parent’s home, including emotional and financial support
  • The child’s own wishes

Ultimately, granting custody rights is based on protecting the needs and best interests of your child, rather than ensuring that one parent gets to “win” more than the other. Because custody battles can be emotionally testing, we are committed to helping you and your ex-spouse come up with an agreeable parenting plan that oversees the safety and well-being of your child.
