Securing Your Relationship With Your Child

We know that the decisions made during any custody case will impact your children and your relationship with them for the rest of their lives. At Moffett Law Firm, we take that responsibility seriously and work with you to assist you in making the best decisions possible for you and your children. We are committed to educating each of our clients at the onset of their case regarding all parent-child issues, including issues of conservatorship (custody), rights and duties, possession (visitation) of their children; and support of the children.

We know that each family is unique and that the divorce will impact parents, children and the dynamic between them in many different ways. We focus on listening to the needs and goals of our clients and tailoring our representation to meet those needs and goals. We also help parents with post-divorce modifications to custody and visitation orders.

Using The Best Interest Standard For Child Custody And Visitation

In Texas, the courts use a “best interest” standard to determine issues of conservatorship (custody), possession and access (visitation), and support of a child. While there are several statutes guiding the courts in determining the best interest of a child, these presumptions can be rebutted on a case-by-case basis.

At Moffett Law Firm, we believe your relationship with your child is unique and important, and often requires customized solutions designed specifically for the needs and circumstances of your family, rather than the general standards set out in statutes.

Our staff and attorneys are knowledgeable, skilled and experienced. We will work to ensure you receive the best representation possible and that the final outcome of your divorce or modification will protect the best interests of your child and your relationship with your child. Whether you seek to gain custody or retain custody of your child or establish a unique customized possession schedule, our case-specific strategies will suit your needs and increase the likelihood of achieving your goals for you and your child.
