Even with the subtropical humidity in the summer, Cypress, Texas is a comfortable suburban community. Just 24 miles northwest of Houston on U.S. 290, this unincorporated area has grown to more than 120,000 residents. And, as one of the highest-income areas of the country, Cypress would seem to be an ideal place to raise a family. In fact, more than 40 percent of Cypress households include children under 18 years of age. But if you‘re contemplating divorce, your future with your children and your right to maintain a loving relationship with them might be in doubt. Or, post-divorce child custody disputes might threaten to disrupt the peace you’ve finally made. This is the time to call Robert Reid McInvale, Attorney at Law, a preeminent family lawyer with more than 30 years of experience and a special focus on child custody disputes.

Reliable guidance with child custody arrangements in Cypress, Texas

In Texas, the law refers to child custody formally as conservatorship. Terms you need to be familiar with include:

  • Standard possession order — This is the court order that creates the conservatorships and also details the parenting time schedule for each parent.
  • Sole managing conservatorship — This arrangement gives decision-making authority to one parent, who usually has sole physical custody of the child. This arrangement is appropriate when one parent is either unfit or unavailable to serve as at least a part-time custodian.
  • Joint managing conservatorship — Here, parents share decision-making authority for the child’s health, education, and welfare. In a joint managing conservatorship, parents often share physical custody of the child.
  • Possessory conservatorship — When the court appoints one parent as sole managing conservator, the other parent has limited possession and access to the child according to the schedule for visitation in the standard possession order. In most cases, the possessory conservator pays child support to the sole managing conservator.

The law requires the court to consider various factors when deciding what type of possession order serves the best interests of your child. As your advocate, we raise pertinent facts that allow the judge to view those factors in a light favorable to your custody goals.

Sound management of child custody disputes during and after divorce

If you are going through a divorce, we negotiate a parenting plan as part of a comprehensive marital settlement agreement to present to the court for approval. If a negotiated settlement is not possible or appropriate, we litigate in court to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your children. We also represent parents in post-divorce child custody disputes, which may include:

  • Modifications of custody orders
  • Parental alienation and interference with visitation
  • Parental unfitness or child endangerment
  • Relocation
  • Fathers’ custody rights
  • Grandparents’ visitation rights

Nothing is more important than your relationship with your children. Choose an attorney who understands the urgency of your situation and is determined to deliver positive results.
