Fort Worth Child Custody Attorneys

Backed by 110+ Years of Shared Experience: (940) 293-2313

Even in the most amicable of divorce proceedings, agreeing on a satisfactory child custody arrangement can be an arduous process. The state of Texas makes it a priority to give both parents access to their children following a divorce, but that can happen in one of two ways.

One parent can be given sole custody, also known as sole managing conservatorship, or custody can be shared through a joint managing conservatorship. The significance of these arrangements has more to do with decision-making responsibilities than living arrangements, which is why the state generally prefers naming each parent a managing conservator. When dealing with family law issues, it is easy to feel stressed and overwhelmed as you try to find a way to settle your dispute as quickly as possible.

    “Best team for a simple divorce”
    They made my divorce easy even in a difficult situation. I was stressed but they handled everything professionally and fast. I’m so grateful to the team. If you need a simple divorce they are the perfect choice.

    “Would highly recommend.”
    I would highly recommend Jacqueline Canon and all of her staff. She and her staff worked very hard on my case for the past 3 years and never let me feel alone or out of the loop. It was a very long and tiring process, but was made easy by the professionalism, care and concern for myself and my family. There is nothing that I would not trust this office with, and while I hope that I don't have to hire them again, I would in a heartbeat.

    “Divorce and Child Custody”
    I recently had the privilege of working with Shelby for my divorce and custody proceedings, and I am absolutely delighted with the exceptional level of support and expertise he provided. Throughout the entire process, Shelby demonstrated unwavering professionalism and dedication. Shelby listened attentively to my concerns, fears, and wishes, ensuring that I felt heard and understood. He provided comprehensive guidance, addressing all my questions and explaining complex legal matters in a way that was easy to comprehend. The success I achieved in securing international custody of my children stands as a testament to Shelby's expertise and unwavering diligence. His remarkable ability to achieve such outcomes in such a difficult case is a true testament to his capabilities. He also displayed genuine care and empathy throughout the entire process. His compassion and understanding made me feel reassured. I would wholeheartedly recommend Shelby to anyone in need of a family lawyer.

    “Handled My Divorce Quickly and with Ease”
    Mr. Pax did an excellent job with my divorce from the consult to final disposition. He made the process easier than I expected, since I was moving during the divorce process. He always had time to answer questions and set appropriate expectations. He and the staff worked around my sometimes odd schedule to get things done. I found everyone I interacted with to be friendly, professional and courteous. I would recommend them to anyone else needing a divorce attorney.

    “Thank you Shelby & Rachel!”

    When I first contacted this firm, I was unsure. I was unsure on many things. I had a set of unique circumstances where I needed to seek a change for the safety of my son but due to something that is somewhat new territory. Shelby was upfront w/ me about both the positive & the negative possible outcomes but let me tell you – Shelby (and Rachel) fought for us.

    There was NOT one moment in time that I felt ignored, dismissed or unimportant; Moreover, I have severe, high anxiety & rather than punish me for it, Shelby & Rachel were understanding, comforting, logical & proactive EVERY STEP of the way. It was like I showed up, threw everything I had on a table while being a sobbing mess – they looked at every piece, held my hand & told me it would be okay. The entire system is long & draining but when we got to our trial date, Shelby was ON FIRE. My faith in him never waivered but that day in court, when we were finally through, I could’ve flown. Shelby (of course w/ the help of his right hand, Rachel!) was absolutely in his element & he stood up for us in all the ways my spirit needed to protect my son. I have shed more tears than I will EVER admit during the entire process but even during my madness, Shelby & Rachel were kind, uplifting & our WARRIORS in the courtroom.

    When I did my phone set up for a consultation, I told them I needed someone aggressive. When you first talk with them, they are so sweet! You’ll think: okay, these are not aggressive or mean people – BUT when the time comes, you can bet your bottom dollar they GO TO WORK. I cannot thank Shelby & Rachel enough for the things they’ve helped my son & I with. They have kept my son SAFE!!!! There aren’t enough descriptive words in our vocabulary to accurately portray what they mean to me. If you want a damn good team – YOU WANT THEM. Thank you Shelby & Rachel! Dax & I love yall!!

    “The entire process was seamless and moved quickly.”

    Worked with Lauren and Nicole. The entire process was seamless and moved quickly. They kept me updated throughout the process and answered any questions I had. I could not have asked for a better experience! Would definitely recommend!

    “Child support”
    Malorie and the team helped me start my process with my ex girlfriend and my son, she made everything easy for me and educated me on my rights as a father. She’s really responsive if I have any questions she’s really quick to email me back.
