Powerful Advocacy For Resolving Custody Issues
For parents, nothing is more important than your children. Even in the midst of a highly contentious divorce, your concern for your children’s welfare outweighs all else. At BrunemanLaw PC, we understand this fact. Our Dallas child custody lawyer, Steven W. Bruneman, offers creative solutions to the difficult question of which custody arrangement would be in the best interest of your children.
With nearly 40 years of legal experience, our attorney is a compassionate advocate for parents and their children. His foundation of knowledge allows him to be a creative problem-solver because, over the years, he has learned what solutions generally work in various situations. He has acquired the skills to artfully negotiate an effective parenting plan as well as the extensive trial experience required for contested custody cases.
The Best Interests Of The Child
Texas courts and juries cannot legally use a parent’s gender as a factor when determining primary possession (physical custody) of children. Instead, they consider numerous factors that contribute to the best interests of the children. Those factors include:
- The physical and mental health of each parent
- Who would better be able to provide a stable home environment
- Depending on the age of the child, the preference of that child
We use these factors and many others to frame our argument to the court as to why you should be granted primary possession of your children. Psychological tendencies in each parent that affect the long-term best interests of children are often overlooked by lawyers and the courts. Where possible, we use these factors to explain why the other parent would not be the right choice to be awarded primary possession of the children.
Parenting Time And Schedules
Beyond primary physical custody, the amount of parenting time (“visitation”) and the parenting plan can be great sources of contention. Mr. Bruneman helps parents explore options and iron out the details to minimize ongoing conflicts and help everybody move forward. Occasionally, parenting plans and the proportion of parenting time also end up in litigation. We are prepared to fight for your parental rights.
