Houston Child Visitation Attorney

Protecting Your Visitation Rights Regarding your Minor Children

The relationship between and child is one of the most important relationships that can affect a person’s health social and psychological development. As a result, the law tries to preserve the relationship between parent and child where possible. However, where the relationship between the child’s parents deteriorates, their right to maintain a relationship with their child might come into conflict. As a result, one parent might be awarded primary custody over their child, while the other parent is granted certain visitation rights.

If you find yourself in a heated custody battle with your child’s other parent, you should consult an experienced attorney who can advise you as to the establishing the proper visitation arrangement under the circumstances relevant to your case. At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, our dedicated Houston child visitation attorneys will help you preserve the best interest of your child when it comes to custody and visitation arrangements.

Texas Law on Visitation

When determining custody and visitation issues, Texas courts are primarily concerned with the child’s best interests. First and foremost, the child’s health and safety take the forefront of the court’s priorities when assessing the factors for making a custody and visitation determination.

Texas courts will examine a variety of factors when making custody and visitation determinations, including:

  • The child’s preference
  • The parties’ respective financial resources
  • Any history of domestic violence
  • Any history of sexual abuse
  • Any history of drug use
  • The parties’ sexual conduct
