Child Custody and Visitation
The impact of divorce on children is often the most pronounced, and we strive to ensure the best custody and visitation plans possible for the children’s needs. Divorce can cause a tremendous amount of damage to children and relationships, and we at Lewis & Passons, P.C. are committed to helping you minimize that damage as much as possible while maintaining the best possible interests for your children and their future.
It should be no surprise that child custody is often one of the most contentious part of the divorce process. Parents must face the reality that the time spent with their children will usually be reduced as a result of their divorce. While joint conservatorship is the general rule in Texas, we will work with you to ensure that the best interest of your children will be served in your case. We will explain the different options available under Texas law and work to help you make the best possible decision for you and your children.
“I came to Mark Lewis’ office on March 2010 after a crushing day in court with another lawyer. I sat down to talk with Mark and he made me have hope that I hadn’t had since my troubles started. He was very knowledgeable of the laws that pertained to my case. Needless to say I should have came to him first but hind site is 20/20. Before we went in to court he prepared me thoroughly as well as his knowledge of the law I finally got justice that I deserved. He is a great lawyer and I am thankful for him everyday because without him as well as my self-discipline I would have never seen my kids. He is a blessing from above. Thanks Mark.” –Kevin (Review from Avvo.com)
Children should remain a priority, and their future should be protected both during and after divorce, and we will fight to make sure they do remain a priority. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and litigators, and will make every effort to resolve all issues surrounding child support and visitation through settlement first. First, we will attempt to work with parents and a team of experts in parenting, psychology, and child wellness to construct a practical, children-focused arrangement for both custody and visitation outside of court. If out-of-court settlement of the child support and visitation issues fails, we stand resolute and are known for our powerful advocacy for children at trial.
“Andrew is very straight forward and lets you know up front what you can expect. He got the results we were looking for without us even going before the judge! We would highly recommend him to anyone needing assistance in a child custody/child support chase! Very effective with Father’s Rights!!” –John and Devra (Review from Avvo.com)
