Just as every marriage is different, every divorce is too. When a divorcing couple has children, decisions must be made that will affect the family for years to come.
Protecting Children in a Texas Divorce
Divorce often has a profound effect on children. It is important for parents to remain focused on protecting their children’s best interests throughout divorce proceedings. Although the marriage dissolves, the family remains.
I am collaborative family law attorney Kristi Barnhill, and I offer a hands-on approach to help parents deal with divorce-related matters affecting children. I understand how difficult and stressful these matters can be — on parents and children. My goal is to provide personalized legal services tailored to each family’s needs and goals.
Divorce With Children: How I Can Help
The Law Office of Kristi Barnhill, PLLC, can help you address the following divorce-related matters affecting children:
- Child custody: The idea of determining where a child will spend his or her time is stressful to many parents. However, Texas family courts always make child custody determinations based on the children’s best interests. It is important for parents to work with an experienced family law attorney who can manage the details of your case and help you navigate through the court system.
- Child support: Determining child support in Texas can be complicated. Parents can attempt to come to an agreement on child support. However, if they are unable to agree, the court will determine the amount of child support to be paid after considering numerous factors.
- Modifications: Both child custody and child support can be modified if a significant change in circumstances has occurred affecting either parent or the children involved. Relocation for a job, for example, can require a child custody modification. A change in income by either parent can necessitate a child support modification.
