Types of Child Custody Cases We Handle
Our firm can address any type of issue related to child custody as it affects you and your children. We take on cases of this nature across Texas and New Mexico, including:
- Child Custody Agreements: In a divorce, determining custody can be an emotionally and legally complex matter. We can protect your interests to the fullest extent in reaching an arrangement that works for you and your child or children.
- Custody Enforcement: If your ex-spouse is not complying with your custody order, we can help you take the appropriate steps to enforce it, getting your child custody agreement back on track.
- Modification of Child Custody: At times, it will be necessary to modify an existing custody order. We handle child custody modifications based off parental relocation, abuse, drug use, and other scenarios that warrant a change.
While a final custody agreement is being reached, a court will assign temporary custody for a child. The court decides this based on what is in the best interest of the child. Temporary custody arrangements do not reflect upon the final verdict.
Who We Represent
In addition to representing mothers and fathers in child custody cases, our El Paso custody attorneys also work for grandparents and other relatives who are seeking custody. If the court deems that both parents are unfit to raise a child, it is possible for another relative to receive full custody. In these cases, we help clients gather the evidence to bring to court as they try to ensure the child’s protection.
Most of our cases involve divorces with children, but we also represent unmarried individuals seeking custody of a child. In these cases, paternity must first be established by the father before any attempt at custody can be made. Our divorce attorneys guide this process along and fight for your rights to raise your child properly.
