When parents part ways, this is an emotional and challenging time. It is not only a process to move on from the failed relationship, but also a process to address the needs of the child. This can look vastly different from one family to the next in Texas and other states. However, what matters is that any issues that arise are resolved with the best interests of the child or children in mind.

It can be a lot to handle. Even when one knows what they want, it can be difficult to further these issues. At the Law office of Michael D. Tracton, P.C., our skilled legal team has helped client with a wide variety of family law matters. Our goal is to fully understand what our clients wants so we can make it a reality for them.

No two matters are the same, and we make sure our clients understand that it may be a longer or shorter process than they expected. In some cases, divorcing parents reach agreeable terms right away. This allows them to file a parenting plan with the court. This plan could address other things such as childcare costs and child support. Other times parents must go through a process to reach agreeable terms. This could look like going through several mediation sessions.

If mediation does not reach a resolution on any or all family law issues, we are prepared to guide our clients through the court proceedings. It can be an emotional process, but our law firm knows what it takes and what is necessary to help protect the rights of our clients. We also understand what evidence will help prove the case.
