When you know that your marriage is over, and have no alternative other than divorce, your primary concern will likely be your children—what will be in their best interests? Where should they live, and how much time do they need to spend with you and your ex-spouse? Because of the emotional attachment you have to them, you can find it difficult to know what will be best for them. Baytown Visitation Lawyer Linda Stewart can help.
At Stewart Law, PLLC, we have provided full-service legal counsel to men and women in divorce proceedings for more than 8 years. We recognize the emotional difficulties that arise when you have to make decisions about where your children will live and how often you will see them. We always put families first and encourage clients to find ways to avoid lengthy, bitter, and often expensive litigation, using mediation and negotiated settlements to find peaceful solutions to their problems. We also work hard to keep costs down, so that our services are affordable to you.

In Texas, the term custody has been replaced with the concept of conservatorship. Instead of viewing children as property, the emphasis is now on the broad nature of the parent-child relationship. Parents have a responsibility that goes beyond merely having the child living in their home. They are called upon to conserve and protect the child, to consider and try to meet the child’s various needs, from emotional to educational to health or spiritual needs.
The prevailing concern of the courts in Texas when establishing conservatorship and visitation is the “best interests of the child.” In general, the courts will try to fashion an arrangement that allows children regular and continued access to both parents.
When you hire us to assist you in a conservatorship or visitation matter, we will use our experience and knowledge to help you identify your options, and to develop and implement an arrangement that is in the best interests of your child while protecting your rights as a parent. When doing so, we will look at all the special needs of your child, including school and extracurricular needs, health and physical issues, emotional ties, and spiritual needs.
Call us or contact us by e-mail. We offer an initial consultation at a reduced fee of $50. We accept credit cards and will set up a payment plan, if appropriate. Our offices are open Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., and until noon on Fridays. Evening and weekend appointments can be arranged upon request.
