Receiving custody of your children requires the best legal attorney

Austin Child Custody Lawyer

Determining custody of children is often the most highly contentious part of a divorce. If parents are not able to come to an agreement, the matter must be settled in court. Court proceedings can take a long time to reach a conclusion and are likely to dredge up a lot of negative feelings and painful truths as parents battle to win custody. This process can be emotionally exhausting, but it is a necessary step to make sure your children are in good care and have a stable home after finalizing the divorce.

High-conflict divorces often result in intense custody battles that are not easily won without the help of an experienced attorney. If you are divorcing and see a custody battle in the works, contact the Austin child custody lawyers at Kirker Davis LLP by calling (512) 598-0010 to begin forming a strategy today.

In these circumstances, an Austin child custody attorney can help you show that you are a strong parent who can give your children a good home.
