Child Custody

Dallas Child Custody Lawyers

Child Custody Laws in Texas

In the Texas Family Code, child custody is known as conservatorship. Tex. Fam. Code Chapter 153 states that custody is granted to (a) certain individual(s) based on the best interests of the child. In order to obtain custody during and after a divorce, you will need to prove to the court that maintaining custody of your child is in their best interest.

O’Neil Wysocki P.C. has handled numerous cases involving child custody and will combine compassionate service with relentless representation. Anyone in need of a Dallas child custody attorney can benefit from calling our offices for a consultation on their case.

Types of Conservatorship

Before you start fighting for custody of your child, it is important that you know what types of conservatorship the court can order. Joint managing conservatorship is ordered when the court decides that both parents need to be involved in the child's life. A joint parenting plan will be drafted and entered to establish which parent the child spends time with and at what time(s). The court can also order sole managing conservatorship to one parent, but the other parent can be granted possessory conservatorship allowing them visitation rights with their child.

5/5 stars
"I hired Michelle to represent our daughter in a custody/divorce suit. We had our choice of attorneys, but Michelle’s 'leave no stone unturned' attitude was all we needed. We won uncontested full custody and we are grateful for a job that was done as it should have been done. INCREDIBLE results."
