Baytown Child Custody Lawyer
Emotions can quickly escalate when couples begin the process of divorce. This is especially true when the custody and well-being of their children are at stake. At the Pinney Law Firm, our Baytown child custody lawyer can help you resolve this sensitive matter and help to promote the well-being of your family.
We are dedicated to providing individual attention and the cost-effective legal strategies that you need to determine your children’s best interest. Divorce is a particularly stressful experience for families, and a dispute over custody only amplifies this stress. When there is a dispute over child custody, both parties need attorneys. Our Baytown child custody lawyer has the skill and compassion to help you smartly navigate through this process. We know what to expect in a Texas divorce.
Courts usually presume that every custody case will result in joint custody. That doesn’t mean that a child’s time will be split evenly between the parents. Finding the right schedule and – if warranted – limiting contact with the other parent altogether, are all options that we will consider to serve the best interest of your children. At the Pinney Law Firm, our Baytown child custody lawyer will work with you, your spouse, opposing lawyers, and the Court to establish a parenting schedule that is best for everyone concerned.
Custody disputes can be expensive and time-consuming. But, we will work with you to custom-tailor an aggressive, yet cost-effective, strategy that best fits your and your children’s needs.
What Amount of Child Support Can I Expect?
In all suits affecting the parent-child relationship, Courts base their decisions on the best interest of the children. In Texas, Courts have held that this requires one person to have the right to determine where the child lives on a day-to-day basis. This person, usually a parent, will also be awarded control over any child support ordered by the Court. In general, the Courts will follow certain legal guidelines for determining the amount of child support to award. The Texas Attorney General has a free child support calculator that you can use to estimate the child support that is likely to be awarded in any case.
