Rules of Engagement

The Texas Family Code

First off, let’s clear the smoke of uncertainty. To triumph in any battle, one needs to know the terrain.

In this case, the terrain is the Texas legal system and our rules of engagement are outlined in the Texas Family Code. These are the laws that governs the court’s decisions in child custody cases.

Particularly, the Texas Family Code §153.002 establishes that “the best interest of the child” remains the primary consideration in determining issues of conservatorship and possession.

Fortify Your Position

Gathering Evidence

Collecting evidence is crucial. The evidence collection process are the building blocks of your case. Courts rely heavily on factual information — we’re talking about documents like report cards, medical records, or anything that can substantiate your claim that you provide a healthy environment for your child.

Mr. Tad Nelson and Ms. Amber Spurlock are seasoned veterans of Galveston County’s family law arena. We’re always ready to bring our wealth of knowledge to the fore.

Our collaborative approach enables us to tailor the best strategy to your case, anticipating and countering the opposition’s moves.

Prepare Your Proofs

Parenting Plan and Financial Affidavits

There are two primary documents that’ll make your case stronger — a detailed parenting plan and an accurate financial affidavit.

  • The parenting plan outlines your proposed child custody arrangement.
  • The financial affidavit provides a clear picture of your financial capabilities.

Together, these documents demonstrate to the court that you’re responsible, prepared, and fully capable of providing for your child. If you need help compiling these documents and ordering them in way that will suffice for court, we’ll provide all needed assistance.
