A Law Firm That Gets Results

Devoted to Family Law and Criminal Defense Throughout the Houston Area

Contested Custody Attorneys

One of the most contested issues in divorce proceedings is child custody and visitation rights. In many cases, the custody agreement is the most contentious issue spouses must resolve.If your custody case is contested, you need a battle-tested attorney who is skilled and confident in litigation and at trial. At Scott M. Brown & Associates, located in Angleton and Pearland, Texas, we work to resolve cases and find agreements out of court whenever possible, but sometimes that just isn’t in the cards. Our attorneys are experienced at trial, and we represent clients throughout the Houston area in initial custody contests and in modification actions that sometimes are necessary following a divorce proceeding if one spouse has a material and substantial change of circumstances.

A Track Record Of Success And Tireless Advocacy

We will work tirelessly to craft a reasonable resolution with the opposing party while protecting your children’s best interests.

Our team will work with expert witnesses such as child psychologists to craft a unique strategy for your particular case. The court will make a final decision in your children’s best interests, but we will also work to protect your best interests and advocate for you.

How Should You Prepare For A Contested Custody Case?

We can help you take all of the appropriate steps. It is critical to preserve evidence such as text messages, emails, letters, videos, phone messages, social media posts (e.g., Facebook and Twitter) and other communications that you have had with your spouse. We can also work to uncover evidence in these areas that you may not know existed.

It is also important to not attempt to influence your children’s decisions about with whom they would prefer to live or to speak disparagingly of the other party in your children’s presence. Any such actions will be looked upon negatively by the court.

What If An Amicus Attorney Is Appointed?

The judge in your case may appoint an amicus attorney whose sole purpose is to represent the best interests of your children. This is a regular procedure in highly contentious cases, and it’s nothing to fear. Children need protection in some litigious cases. The amicus attorney is a neutral party who ensures that the children’s best interests and desires are adequately expressed to the court.
