Dallas Child Custody Attorney

Protect Your Children's Best Interest

Figuring out a custody arrangement will be one of the most difficult parts of the divorce. It is usually better to try and figure out this arrangement collaboratively, but this is not always possible. If your spouse is fighting for an unfair arrangement, or if you believe you need custody of your children for their safety, contact our Dallas child custody lawyer today.

Call (214) 972-3025 to schedule an appointment at Garcia-Windsor, P.C. We serve Dallas and Collin County, and we offer services in English and Spanish.

Child Custody Law in Texas

Texas refers to child custody as “conservatorship.” Parents can share custody of their children in "joint managing conservatorship," or one parent can maintain primary custody, also known as "sole managing conservatorship." Courts always make decisions based on what they believe to be in the best interests of the child.

In most cases, even parents who do not have primary custody are given ample opportunity to visit and spend time with their child. It is rare for a court to deny a parent access to a child unless they have demonstrated violent and abusive behavior, or have demonstrated little interest in the safety and well-being of their children.

If parents cannot come to an agreement on custody, a court may institute joint custody if:

  • It will benefit the child’s mental and emotional health
  • It will benefit the child’s financial and social welfare
  • It will encourage parents to maintain a civil relationship on behalf of their child
  • Both parents live relatively close to each other
  • The child is at least 12 years old and has a preference for which parent they stay with

Children make divorce more complicated. While difficult for parents, divorce is often harder on the children. This is not to say it will not benefit them in the long-run. Being a child of divorce is much healthier than being stuck in a family where the parents have irreconcilable differences. Both parents can still have a positive relationship with their children after a divorce.
