Custody Battles in Houston

Fighting for Custody

Houston-area custody attorney Robert Reid McInvale wants to know, “Are you fighting for custody?” If so, he can help by offering experienced legal advice to fight your child custody battle.

Obviously, a battle for custody of your children is the last thing you want. It is painful enough going through a divorce. Bringing the rest of your family into the battle over who will ultimately gain physical and/or legal custody of your children only spreads the sorrow and bitterness. However, you may find yourself in a situation in which a custody fight becomes inevitable. In that case, you need a skilled and determined advocate like Reid McInvale on your side.

Some situations in which a need for a court battle may arise include when the other parent:

  • Has a history of substance abuse
  • Is physically and/or emotionally abusive to your children
  • Lives in a situation that you consider adverse to your children’s best interests
  • Has a criminal background or history of arrests
  • Disagrees with you on major issues affecting your child and will not compromise in any way
  • Is insisting on fighting for sole physical and/or legal custody and will not consider another custodial arrangement

Should one or more of these situations apply, you may have no choice but to go to court and fight for custody. Make no mistake – custody battles can get ugly and may last a very long time. In fact, under Texas law, custody is NEVER considered final. At any time, either or both parents may challenge aspects of the initial custodial decision based on any changes or discomfort with any part of the physical and legal custody agreement, issues regarding child support and visitation, or whatever other problem may arise.

Do not enter into a protracted court battle without considering all the alternatives first, including the possible affects on your children. Talk it out with your ex or arrange for a mediator to assist you in working out your issues. However, when all alternatives are exhausted and your only choice is a custody battle, make sure you have a lawyer on your side that has the experience and determination to fight for your rights. Contact attorney Robert Reid McInvale and utilize his skill in all types of custodial matters and Texas law to pursue alternatives to a custody fight or, if needed to stand by your side should battling it out in court become your only recourse.
