Collin County, TX Child Custody Lawyer

Skilled Attorneys for Sole or Joint Custody

Any parents entering into a child custody case will have many questions and concerns. The most important issue, however, is establishing a safe and secure environment for their children both during and after the legal process. Whether you are undergoing a divorce, looking to reestablish custody, or amending a previously agreed-upon agreement, the family law attorneys at The Ramage Law Group can advocate for you and your children to achieve the best possible outcome. We work tirelessly for our clients because we know how important family relationships are.

Benefits of Using a Collin County, Texas Child Custody Attorney

Each child custody case is different, and these cases can include many different factors. The Ramage Law Group attorneys will help you navigate the Texas family law procedures to establish your child custody agreement. We usually recommend that our clients have a court order established to put a legal framework around their agreement and clearly describe the rights and obligations of both parents.

Once a child custody agreement is in place, modifications are allowed if there have been "material and substantial" changes in the circumstances of the original agreement. These changes may include:

  • A new medical condition or disability affecting either a parent or a child
  • Change in custodial preference of the child, provided they are 12 years old or older
  • Relocation by a parent due to a change in job or another reason
  • Actions by one parent to alienate the child from the other parent
  • Custodial parent moves without notifying the other parent
  • Abusive or neglectful behavior towards the child

More severe cases may result in one parent pursuing an emergency change of custody. These high-conflict custody cases can involve drug or alcohol abuse, mental illness, alienation, or other unsafe conditions. Our attorneys are well-prepared to handle such cases, and we will always act in your and your children's best interests.

Fathers' Rights and Grandparents' Rights in Collin County, TX

Texas law now recognizes fathers' changing roles in their children's lives. This recognition means equal legal footing in custody cases. Our fathers' rights lawyers will help you establish your legal rights to visitation, joint custody, or sole custody, depending on the circumstances of the case. These issues may need to be addressed by fathers who are going through a divorce, are looking to change a previous agreement after a divorce, or are the unmarried partner to the mother of their child.

Grandparents can step in and establish custody or other legal protections for their grandchildren if neither biological parent can provide a safe living environment. Options for grandparents seeking better circumstances for their grandchildren include:

  • Child custody - We can assess your situation and determine if pursuing custody is the best option. Custody can also include establishing or modifying child support, and we can ensure that these obligations will provide for children's needs.
  • Guardianship - We can help you determine if legal guardianship of grandchildren is the best solution for your case.
  • Adoption - Our attorneys can help grandparents with contested and uncontested adoptions. If a case is contested, it may require terminating parental rights, which can be a challenging standard to meet.

No matter the circumstances of your custody case, our law firm is ready to help you create a safe and stable situation for you and your children.
