Houston, TX Custody Attorney

Nothing is more precious to you than your relationship with your children. At child custody attorney Stacey Valdez & Associates, Houston, TX custody lawyers, we understand that, and we are committed to helping you keep that relationship strong, through your divorce or paternity action and beyond. Our skilled child custody attorney team are effective advocates for you, standing up for your parental rights and protecting your children's best interests.

In Texas, as in other states, courts determine child custody using the “best interests of the child” standard. The court evaluates both parents on a number of factors, including the physical, psychological, and emotional needs of your children, and the ability of each parent to foster a positive relationship between your children and the other parent. At Stacey Valdez & Associates, we listen to you, get to understand your family's unique situation and needs, and present evidence to the court in the way that will help the judge make the best decision for your children and you.

Houston Family Law Attorneys for Custody Issues

Texas law presumes that it's in a child's best interest to have a significant relationship with both parents. Unfortunately, some parents lack the willingness or ability to do what is best for their children, as in cases involving substance abuse or severe mental illness.

At Stacey Valdez & Associates, our attorneys have plenty of experience on both sides of high-conflict child custody matters. We represent parents who need the court to understand their legitimate reasons for restricting the other parent's access to their children. We also work with parents who have had issues in the past but have worked hard to overcome challenges that once might have had an impact on their parenting abilities. No matter your circumstances, we have the ability to present your case so that the court interprets the situation in the light most favorable to you.
