Align Your Goals With a Firm That Cares!

There are two broad custody categories – physical and legal. Physical determines where the child lives and spends their time, while legal applies to each parent's ability to make decisions for their child. The court can assign joint custody, which means that the parents share time with the child and make decisions together, sole custody, which means that one parent gets both physical and legal custody, or split custody.

The following factors are considered with establishing custody orders:

  • The parents willingness to work together
  • The child's best interests
  • Each parent's financial resources
  • The age and number of children
  • Where each parent lives
  • The child's relationships with the parents

More than anything, the court seeks to ensure that the child's best interests are upheld at all times. Your desires for your child may look different than the court's opinion and going without legal assistance can be risky. At Haugen Law Firm, P.C., we are dedicated to preserving your relationship with your child.

You can count on our firm to stand by your side throughout the entirety of your case. Known for our client-centered approach and ability to secure positive results, there is a reason why we are a trusted name in Texas.
