Attorney Handling Child Custody in El Paso

Knowledgeable and Compassionate Lawyer Handling Visitation in El Paso County

There are many common misconceptions when it comes to establishing custody and visitation rights in family law matters. Because there are many misconceptions out there, it is a smart idea to seek legal guidance from a lawyer who is knowledgeable of the law and will protect your family's best interests.

At our firm, we are here to advocate for you. We are the legal team at the Law Office of Xochitl A. Ambriz, and we are here to provide the comprehensive representation and knowledgeable legal advice that you are looking. Our firm is located in El Paso, Texas, and we represent clients throughout the surrounding areas in divorce and family law matters, including child custody and visitation.

Who Will Get Custody?

It is often assumed that custody is split where one parent assumes the role of primary custodian, and the other parent is allowed visitation time. In many cases today, it is more common for both parents to have a 50/50 split custody or split visitation time. There can also be modified visitation schedules to accommodate work schedules and provide more time for the non-custodial parent to spend with the child. You should seek legal guidance from a lawyer in order to ensure that your child's best interests are put first throughout this process. At our firm, we can help.

Even outside the divorce process, we can help with establishing parental rights in a Suit Affecting Parent/Child Relationships (SAPCR).

It is a common misconception that if the child lives with one parent, then the other parent does not have a say in the decision making processes involved in raising a child. If both parents are joint managing conservators, then the noncustodial parent can have just as much weight in making important decisions with regard to:

  • Healthcare and health insurance
  • Schooling
  • Daycare
  • Medical decisions

Visitation Plans

While there is a suggested standard for visitation, it is important to know that the courts are open to hearing a modified visitation plan if it is in the best interests of the child. If parents are able to make an arrangement that works for them, and allows the child to live in a thriving environment, the courts will likely approve the plan.

If modifications need to be made, our firm can also assist you in making those changes. We assist our clients with modifications of prior orders, including child support modifications, child custody and visitation modifications.
