Going through a divorce is draining and extremely emotional, even when the decision to get a divorce was mutual. Divorce is one of the most stressful things a family can face. Emotions and tensions run high, making it almost impossible to settle the disputes calmly and without hiccups. The competent family law attorneys at Scroggins Law Group, PLLC can help you work through your divorce case by advising you on what the best course of action is for you based on the law and what your specific goals are. An experienced attorney can help relieve some of your stress by anticipating any issues that may arise and crafting a unique plan for your case. They can help alleviate some of the tension by rationally negotiating with the opposing side, helping to keep some of the higher emotions out of it.
Child custody is another difficult matter that will need to be addressed if you are going through a divorce with children. There will be a new normal for all members of the family and it can be a very difficult adjustment, especially for children who are often caught off guard by the separation of their parents. Parents will need to agree on how to best take care of the children, both during the proceedings and once the divorce is final. In Texas, child custody is called conservatorship and the custodians of the child are referred to as conservators. There are specific legal rights and responsibilities of conservators and a knowledgeable family attorney, like the ones at Scroggins Law Group, PLLC, can help you draft an agreement outlining your rights and responsibilities as well as possession and access schedules for the children.
After a divorce life moves forward whether you are ready for it to or not. People adjust to their new reality. Children continue to grow, and jobs and relationships can change and develop for the former spouses. The original child custody agreement may need to be modified or amended. It is important to keep in mind what is best for the child. If both parties can agree on what that is that is excellent, but if the conservators cannot agree, an experienced family lawyer Dallas residents trust can help.
