How Can an Austin Contentious Child Custody Law Firm Help You?

By law, family law judges are required to resolve contentious child custody matters “in the best interests” of the affected child. Therefore, our firm’s approach to every contentious child custody case is grounded in illustrating how our client’s approach best meets that standard with respect to their child.

The best interests of every child are as unique as that specific child is. We work tirelessly to build legal strategies and supporting materials that effectively reflect this reality on behalf of our clients. While building a solid legal approach to your contentious child custody matter, we can:

  • Evaluate what the unique “best interests” of your child are
  • Assess the fundamental differences that are keeping you and your child’s other parent from reaching an agreement
  • Construct a legal strategy, if appropriate, designed to reach an agreement with your child’s other parent before judicial intervention becomes necessary
  • Advocate aggressively on behalf of you and your child should a “courtroom battle” become the best or only way forward
  • Negotiate fair child support arrangements designed to meet your child’s needs
  • Draft a co-parenting plan that is manageable, enforceable, and sets reasonable expectations (if you are not fighting for sole legal and physical custody)

Our team of family lawyers is skilled in trial settings, so the complexity of your case will not intimidate us. No matter the particulars of the significant challenges you’re facing, we can help.

Do You Need a Lawyer to Represent You?

When a child’s parents do not fundamentally disagree on how their child custody arrangements should be constructed, it is possible to work with an attorney exclusively for the purposes of formalizing whatever terms have been agreed to by both parents. However, it is critically important to have solid legal representation if you and your child’s other parent fundamentally disagree about your child’s custody arrangements.

All too often, parents nervously rely on the idea that “things will work themselves out” only to learn that their child’s other parent has hired a lawyer determined to enforce that parent’s agenda regardless of what is best for the child in question. To better ensure the protection of your child’s best interests and your parental rights, it is imperative that you have a legal team on your side determined to fight for what is just and for what is right.

There are times when a “do it yourself” approach to legal representation makes sense. When the stakes of a legal issue are low and the matter itself is straightforward, representing oneself pro se can be a responsible option. However, when the fate of your parenting arrangements is on the line, you need the most reputable, knowledgeable, and dedicated legal counsel available representing your interests and the best interests of your child.

While no law firm can guarantee the outcome of any legal dispute, there are very good reasons why the majority of our firm’s current clients were referred to us by former clients. These are the same reasons why the red brick building that houses our offices is immediately recognizable by so many Texans as the home of capable, effective, and genuinely invested legal representation. When you’re fighting for your family, you deserve a firm that will treat you like family advocating on your behalf. Minton, Bassett, Flores & Carsey, P.C. is that firm.
