Dallas Child Custody Attorneys Providing Compassionate Professional Legal Assistance In A Time Of Personal Crisis

Joint Legal Custody • Co-Parenting • Parenting Plans • Grandparents' Rights • Child Custody Agreements

Deciding child custody and conservatorship arrangements, including those all important possession and access issues, can put a strain on families already torn apart by divorce proceedings. At Carlock & Gormley, in the Dallas–Fort Worth, Texas, area, our child custody attorneys are committed to helping clients resolve these matters in a civil and respectful manner. Contact us to learn how we can be of assistance.

Whether the choice is made to have a joint managing conservatorship or a sole managing conservatorship, a child's future will largely be influenced by the day-to-day decisions made by whichever parent has the authority and control. In rare cases where neither parent is willing or able to care for the child, custody may be awarded to a relative or grandparent.

Our Dallas child custody attorneys take into account the best interests of the child. We consider all the rights and responsibilities that go along with making major decisions in a child's life such as:

  • Determining the primary residence of the child
  • Determining who will make the important medical decisions for the child, including therapy and mental health matters
  • Determining whether the child attends public or private school

Once the child support terms have been determined, our family lawyers recommend a review every three years in case there is a need for post-divorce modifications to adjust to changing circumstances.

Contact our child custody attorneys today to schedule an appointment. We offer initial consultations for a modest fee, and have weekend and evening hours by request. From our law office conveniently located in the Dallas Preston Center, we have more than 75 years of combined legal experience and believe in providing compassionate professional assistance in a time of legal crisis.
