Your children are the most important people in your life. If you are currently facing a child custody battle, allow an educated and experienced lawyer at The Law Office of Bryan Fagan to represent you in court.
Whether you plan to litigate or want to resolve the child custody question through mediation, the Law Office of Bryan Fagan can help.

TYPES OF CHILD CUSTODY

Child custody can be arranged in several different ways. Both parents can have equal custody of the children post-divorce, or one parent may have majority or sole custody. Normally, the court arranges this after evaluating the parents and their relationship with their children. Also, the court will need to evaluate whether or not parents could work together in a joint custody relationship.

Joint custody: When both parents have some degree of custody over the children
Sole custody: When one parent has primary custody over the child
Legal custody: The authority to make decisions for the child concerning his or her education, medical care, religion, upbringing and more
Physical custody: The parent with physical custody is the one who actually has the child and owns the residence where the child lives
The courts can award joint legal or physical custody and may require ex-spouses to split their time with the child equally or in a percentage that is most convenient.

ACTING IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE CHILD

If the court is responsible for determining child custody in your case, then they will decide the matter in what they conclude to be the best interests of the child.

In order to act in the best interests of the child, the court evaluates:

The child's relationship with both parents
The parents' willingness to allow the child to have a relationship with the other parent
The parents' location
The parents history with alcohol, drugs or smoking
The parents' ability to work together
The health, age, employment and well-being of both parents
ENCOURAGING MEDIATION

The courts in Texas encourage spouses to work through child custody plans together using a mediator. At the Law Office of Bryan Fagan, the firm can provide you with a trustworthy and helpful mediator. In mediation, you and your spouse will sit down and calmly work out a custody plan that works best for both of you and one that helps the children. The judge normally adopts the parents' plan unless it is not in the best interests of the child. This can help keep your children out of court and maintain a calm atmosphere in the home.

If you want more information about child custody, don't hesitate to call a Spring divorce attorney at the firm today for a free consultation.
Child Support
Child support is a set, monthly payment that is paid by a non-custodial spouse to a custodial spouse to provide for the regular expenses of the children from a marriage. This allows a non-custodial spouse to fulfill his or her parental duties.
In Texas, physical custody always determines who will pay child support. The parent who has physical custody will always be the recipient parent and the parent who does not have physical custody of the kids (regardless of whether or not he or she has legal custody) will pay the child support if ordered by the court.

CALCULATING CHILD SUPPORT

The courts calculate child support payments based on a percentage of the non-custodial parent's income. You can estimate how much the state will expect you to pay in minimum child support by doing a simple calculation.

The court will evaluate all wages, salary, commissions, tips, overtime and bonuses as income for calculation purposes. This also includes any government benefits, severance pay or retirement benefits. The courts will also factor in alimony, gifts, prizes, and other costs. The court will then affix a percentage which will be the amount you are required to pay monthly for child support.

For one child, the paying spouse is required to pay 20% of net resources monthly
For two children, 25% is required
For three children, 30% is required
For four children, 35% is required
Five children and more always require at least 40%
CONTESTING CHILD SUPPORT

Parents are permitted to pay more in child support if they wish to do so. The percentages listed above simply signify the minimum amount they can pay. Spouses have the liberty to challenge the amount (either seeking less or more) in court. In order to effectively argue this point, you will want a professional Spring divorce attorney to represent you and develop a legally recognized argument on your behalf.

Whether you are seeking support or you are resisting it, The Law Office of Bryan Fagan can help. Don't hesitate to contact this divorce firm today for more information. They are committed to providing high-quality service for Texas couples looking to divorce.
