Experienced Dallas Attorney For Custody Modifications

Decisions about custody made during a divorce or family law dispute are based on the best interests of the child at the time of the order. As children grow older and families change, one or both parents may want to modify child custody and parenting time arrangements.

At the Law Offices of Jennifer S. Goldman, P.L.L.C., you will work with an experienced Dallas custody modification attorney who understands that you want what is best for your child. We will help you explore your options regarding any potential child custody modification, including relocation matters. We serve clients in Dallas and the surrounding areas of Texas.

Legal Guidance For Custody, Possession And More

A change in custody may be necessary because the needs of a child change, a parent fails to meet his or her child custody obligations, or for many other reasons. When the need arises, we can help you seek modification of custody-related court orders, including:

  • Where a child lives: After a court order is issued declaring where a child will reside, you may need to wait a year or more to modify that order. Typically, you will need to show a material change in circumstances. We can listen carefully to your concerns and explain your available options.
  • Possession schedules: Possession schedules, also called visitation schedules, determine the time that a child will spend with each parent. A possession schedule set when a child is young may not work as well when the child becomes a busy teenager. If you would like to modify a possession schedule, contact our office.

Representing You In Court

When we represent you in a custody modification matter, we will seek to reach an agreement with the other parent through negotiation and mediation when possible. Sometimes, however, a contested hearing is necessary, and in those situations, we provide experienced courtroom representation.

In any matter relating to child custody, a court will make decisions based on what is in the best interests of the child. When you meet with us, we can explain the information judges need in order to make a sound decision.

Relocating With A Child

If you wish to relocate with your child, you will need the court's approval. If you wish to contest a child move-away situation, you will go through a similar process. At the Law Offices of Jennifer S. Goldman, P.L.L.C., we can help you explore your options regarding any child custody modification, including relocation. It is important to remember that in any legal issue involving children, Texas family courts will consider the best interests of the child.
