Child Custody

Collin County, Texas, Child Custody Attorney

We strive to handle all child custody matters with wisdom and sensitivity, in full recognition of what a major turning point divorce can be for you and your children. Whether you are now facing divorce or dealing with tough child custody issues that have arisen since your divorce, we encourage you to contact us at the Plano Law Office of James A. Frazier, P.C.

Explaining Complex Laws to Help You Make Sound Decisions

Beginning with terms such as conservatorship and access, there is plenty of legal jargon in the Texas laws covering divorce, parental rights and custody decisions. Mr. Frazier can cut through this language for you, helping you make sound choices based on a solid understanding of the law and your likelihood of success in legal matters you face. He will help you find a realistic, achievable approach to your case and advocate on your behalf every step of the way.

Our Texas courts prioritize the best interests of the child in issuing child custody/conservatorship orders. There is also a strong preference for arrangements that ensure frequent and continuing contact with both parents — except in extreme situations where this is harmful to children or puts them at risk. In helping you work toward the best possible results for your family, we will carefully explain key issues such as:

  • Standard possession orders, and any special parenting time considerations that should be accounted for in your settlement
  • Child support requirements and calculations, with an eye to their impact on your overall financial situation
  • Patterns and tendencies of our area courts that may influence your decision to aggressively pursue a certain custody/visitation arrangement

An Experienced Lawyer Focused on Achieving Positive Settlements

There is no substitute for experience in handling complex family law situations — and resolving issues related to care of your children can be very complex. Attorney James A. Frazier has a depth of experience that few other Collin County lawyers can match. This enables him to help many parents reach agreement on child custody and visitation issues out of court — through negotiations or alternatives to litigation such as collaborative law and mediation.

He is also a veteran of many child custody cases that have gone all the way to trial, obtaining primary conservatorships, favorable possession/visitation arrangements and other positive outcomes for many Texas mothers and fathers. Our law office is well-equipped to assist you in pursuing — or defending against — a modification of your conservatorship order or access plan when circumstances change.
