When the mother and the father have different visions in custody and visitation, either in basic principles or complex details, conflict can be intense. With custody disputes, the stakes could not be higher. Since 1987, our Houston family law firm has provided clear solutions in complex child custody cases. We work rigorously to settle disputes over custody and visitation out of court, however, if trial is necessary, we will enter the courtroom fully prepared to accomplish your goals and the best interest of you and your children.
One of many reasons that people come to our firm is our ability to obtain custody agreements and possession schedules that balance their parenting goals with career obligations. For many professions such as physicians, nurses, police officers, attorneys, professional athletes, firefighters, airline pilots and other unique professional roles - a standard possession order simply does not work.

In addition to helping parents with creative parenting schedules for professional reasons, our child custody attorneys also assist our clients with parenting schedules involving very young children (toddlers and infants under 3 years old). Our attorneys are adept at negotiating special visitation arrangements suited to these situations, sometimes relying on testimony from child psychologists and other specialized professionals to achieve the best possible results for your children and you.
