Child Custody & Support

What you need to know about child custody & visitation in Texas

Issues involving children can be a major source of debate for most divorcing couples.  The Courts handle child custody and visitation matters with the best interest of the children first and foremost in mind.  Tessmer Law Firm, PLLC does the same.  The decisions made now could have a serious impact on the rest of your life, as well as the lives of your children. Our Attorneys use their knowledge of Texas child custody laws to help our Clients – both mothers and fathers – create fair parenting and visitation plans.

 

Our goal at Tessmer Law Firm, PLLC is to help you resolve custody and visitation issues, always keeping the best interests of your children as a priority. Oftentimes, we are able to come to an agreement on what is in the children’s best interest; however, should it be necessary to go to court, we have the experience and aggressiveness needed to successfully represent our Clients in contested proceedings.  We will diligently prepare you to go before the Judge, making certain all documentation needed for your case is present.

 

Some law firms tell clients what they want to hear; we will tell you Texas law that applies and provide you options.  We will help you understand what can affect the outcome of your child custody dispute, and assist you in navigating through issues such as social studies, discovery and disclosure, temporary orders and child support calculations.

 

We are parents, too.  We understand how important your kids are.

How is child support calculated in Texas?

Child Support in Texas follows a formula created by the Legislature that takes into account the income and expenses of both parents and, in general, awards support to the parent who has primary custody of the children.  While there is a formula to calculate support, many issues can affect the final amounts awarded.  Financial and employment situations change, a party may marry again, have more children, or move away. 

 

At Tessmer Law Firm, PLLC, we aid both mothers and fathers in establishing, modifying and enforcing child support that is in the best interest of the children involved.
