As one of the most affluent and fastest growing cities in Texas, Sugar Land is an ideal place to raise a family. In fact, 40 percent of all households here have children under 18 years of age living at home. But if you are going through a divorce, you have to be concerned about your children’s future and your right to maintain a loving relationship with them. You may also be facing post-divorce child custody issues that threaten to put you back on square one, at odds again with your ex-spouse. That’s when it’s time to reach out to Robert Reid McInvale, Attorney at Law. Child custody has been a special focus of our family law firm for more than 30 years.
On the surface, Sugar Land looks like a pristine American suburb, composed of several master-planned communities, a largely white-collar work force, and a population known for its fitness. But parents in Sugar Land still face challenges raising their children, and those challenges are made even more difficult by child custody conflicts. If you are going through a divorce or have new or persistent custody conflicts with an ex, you can rely on Reid McInvale. Reid is rated “Superb” by Avvo in Child Custody, is AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell® for his high ethical standards and professional ability, and was named winner of the Platinum Client Champion award for 2017.
Texas law refers to child custody formally as conservatorship. What people generally call legal custody is officially known in Texas as a managing conservatorship. A parent who has the authority to make decisions for the child’s health and welfare is a managing conservator. Whether and when your child lives in your home is determined under a standard possession order. A court-approved parenting plan could include the following arrangements:
The court considers numerous factors when deciding what custody arrangement serves the best interests of your child. As your advocate, we bring to the court’s attention all pertinent facts so the judge can make a fully informed decision based on your true circumstances.
In divorce actions, we work to negotiate a comprehensive marital settlement agreement to present to the court for approval. A detailed parenting plan is an important part of any settlement. If settlement is not possible or appropriate, we vigorously assert your parental rights in court to achieve the best possible result for you and your children. We are also available for any custody disputes that arise after the divorce is final. Post-divorce issues include:
We serve all of the communities in Sugar Land, including Eldridge East, Mayfield Park, Brookside, Telfair, Crescent Lakes, Colony Meadows, Edgewater, Sugar Crossing, Sweetwater Estates, Old Mill Park, and Gardens of Avalon.
