At Megan Rachel, we take the time to analyze your present circumstances and your custody goals. Further, we help out in balancing out the best interests of the children and your parenting rights.

What a Denton child custody attorney should advise you on;

Most federal courts will always go for rulings that favor an active presence of both parents in the child’s life after a breakup. However, in this scenario, only on the parent will have the physical custody of the child while the other parent is offered ample parenting time to bond with the child. At Megan Rachel, we advise on the following regarding child custody

  • Physical custody; this is can refer to the duration of parenting time awarded to each parent or the physical location where children will reside most of the time.
  • Legal custody; after breaks up there are concerns regarding the principal decision maker in the child’s life. Legal custody offers each parent the right to make such decisions in the child’s life
  • Child custody modifications; a custody modification can occur if one of the parents experiences a significant change in his/her life, for example, securing a new job or quitting an addiction. If this is the case, the previously finalized order can be modified.
  • Relocations; in regards to relocation, the custodial parent must inform the noncustodial parent of his/her intention to move more than 100 miles from the non-custodial parent. If there are disagreements both parties can seek a court settlement

Child custody is a delicate matter that evokes emotions in both the parties involved and the child. At Megan Rachel, we understand this, and we seek to advise our clients appropriately, so they don’t feel left out in the child’s life.
