Child Custody Attorney

In Texas, child custody arrangements are e driven by fact-specific information. Before determining how custody will be determined, the family law courts are interested in understanding who has been the primary caretaker for the children, the appropriateness of the behavior of the primary caretaker and numerous other surrounding facts and circumstances.

At the law office of Prater & Ridley, our Bell County child custody attorneys have more than 110 years of experience preparing fact-specific cases that protect the best interests of the children. Attorney Carol Prater is a board certified family lawyer in the state of Texas, and she only handles family law matters.

To help ensure that we have all the information that is relevant to our clients' cases, we often hire investigators, talk with witnesses and review social media information. We instruct our clients to gather information to ensure we have all the information we need.

Likewise, we often ask our clients to prepare written statements listing any actions or events they think could be significant to their cases. Being honest about everything — including health problems, arrests, involvement with mental health care professionals or violence — can help ensure there are no surprises down the road.
