Child Custody & Visitation

Keeping your children’s best interests front of mind

From a child’s point of view, they will have two homes after a divorce, not one. So we work with parents to help them understand that custody is more than something to be won or lost – and that there will still be significant decisions to share.

Child Custody

Who will have custody of the children is one the most emotionally charged decisions to make in a divorce. At GoransonBain Ausley, we understand how difficult this subject is for parents, supporting parents with clear legal advice while reminding them that custody is rarely a question of ‘all or nothing’.From where the children will go to school to providing for their medical care, plenty of decisions  will  involve both parents’ input.

Our experienced lawyers will discuss custody or “conservatorship” and the rights and duties of parents. We are here to help you address all of the concerns you have that involve significant decisions affecting your children.

Visitation

For the majority of parents, the visitation or possession schedule they will have with their children is the most important thing they will decide. GoransonBain Ausley lawyers are there to help you hold productive discussions about what schedule is best for you and your children.

We listen carefully to you to get to know the ages and needs of your children,  both parents’ work schedules and availability and ability to keep to certain schedules so that the children’s lives are the least disrupted. We’ll make sure you understand the Standard Possession Order provided by the Texas Family Code and help you decide whether this schedule will work for your family. If not, we will help you craft a schedule that works for your specific family.

Ensuring your whole family has the support you need

In some situations, we can recommend parenting consultants, mental health professionals and child specialists who can help you develop custody and visitation solutions that work for you as well as help you address any parenting concerns or conflicts that may arise during the divorce or child custody dispute.
