Committed to Helping Defend Your Child’s Best Interests
Perhaps the most important aspect of any divorce case is establishing how child custody and visitation will be handled for the foreseeable future. Though a divorce is going to have an impact no matter what, it is the goal of Texas courts to act in the child’s best interests and help them to maintain a happy life and positive relationships with both parents. In divorce cases, it is often challenging for parents to come to an agreement. At The Law Office of Rob Biggers, I have the knowledge and experience necessary to help clients navigate these complex challenges.
I am prepared to help you ensure that you have ample time to spend with your child and build a healthy, loving, and lasting relationship with them. Contact my office today to get started with a consultation if you’re in Lubbock, Woodrow, or Lubbock County, TX!
Factors that Impact Child Visitation Schedules
Judges can only base their decisions on the family’s situation as it stands at the time of the divorce. In virtually all cases, each parent wants as much time with their children as possible, and both counsel and the courts are tasked with trying to find a balance that works well for your child.
Just a few of the factors that can affect both custody and visitation include:
- Each party’s history of involvement in the child’s life previous to the divorce
- Each parent’s willingness to cooperate with the other for the good of the child
- The stability of the household
- The ability to maintain continuity in the household, or keeping as many aspects as possible of the child’s life the same
- The presence of violence of abuse
- The child’s wishes
- The child’s overall best interests
Life can change rapidly and without notice. Perhaps you need to relocate, or your former spouse’s schedule changed significantly. Sometimes when this happens, it necessitates a change to the existing custody and visitation agreement. As a dedicated Lubbock child visitation lawyer, I have everything my clients need to address these matters.
