Austin, Texas Child Custody Lawyer

Georgetown TX Child Custody Lawyer

Travis County Divorce and Family Attorneys for Sole and Joint Custody Issues

At one time, child custody law in Austin and throughout Texas favored mothers when appointing the custodial parent (known as the conservator) of the children of divorce. But Texas Family Code now specifies that either parent can be granted custody — the law decides these issues based solely on the best interests of the children. Toward that goal, the law requires divorcing couples — who best know what is right for their children — to try to reach agreement prior to seeking a court decision. Child custody attorney Bill Powers helps clients in Austin and throughout central Texas work toward an equitable solution before and during courtroom proceedings.

An Austin Child Custody Attorney Who Helps Ensure the Best Interests of Your Children

Texas divorce lawyers need specialized negotiation and facilitation skills to assist clients through delicate child custody and support negotiations. As a Certified Collaborative Attorney, Bill Powers has undergone specialized training in helping couples reach agreement — these techniques are a valuable asset even when collaborative law is not being used in a divorce.

In cases of highly contested divorce, it is not always possible to reach agreement on issues of child custody and support without taking issues before a judge. While our law firm makes every effort to help avoid the need for a courtroom decision, Bill Powers is a fierce advocate when the need arises to prove that the best interests of the children lie with remaining in primary or sole custody of his clients. He works with you to illustrate that your past history with the children — and your future plans — provide the stability and caring support your children need to thrive.
