Child custody is the most contentious areas of family law. Parents will go to the ends of the earth when it comes to their children. For most, the thought of seeing their child(ren) less is the hardest part of the separation/divorce process.
When married parents separate, a divorce will handle all child custody issues. When unmarried parents separate, a lawsuit called a Suit Affecting Parent-Child Relationship (SAPCR) must be filed to ensure that both parents follow a court order.
When custody issues arise, Texas is guided by one simple principle – the best interest of the child. Michelle E. Smith has years of experience in representing clients in contested custody disputes.
