A child custody battle is one of the most difficult aspects of a divorce. Keep in mind that the child’s best interests will always be at the forefront. However, there are strategies that your attorney can use to boost your chance of a successful outcome.
Three strategies a Texas child custody attorney will use include:
- Making sure he or she has all of the facts. Often, what a parent shares comes from his or her emotions. Uncovering the truth is the job of the child custody lawyer. Legal counsel will examine all of the information provided before declaring it as fact.
- Making sure you aren’t denigrating or putting down the other parent. Put-downs don’t make that parent look bad; it actually makes you look bad. Instead of focusing on the other parent’s negatives, an attorney will focus on your positives. Focusing on positives also puts the best interests of the child in mind.
- Reminding you that staying calm and keeping a level head is vital. No matter how difficult the battle becomes, you must maintain a level of composure.
