Putting Your Children's Best Interests First

At R.A. Markle & Associates, we encourage our fellow Harris County and Montgomery County residents to put their children first throughout the divorce process. The end of a marriage creates uncertainty for children. Their peace of mind is paramount during life-changing transitions.

Advocating For The Best Interests Of Children Throughout The Woodlands

As a lawyer who has taken on complex divorces for large Texas law firms, Robert A. Markle understands the emotional turmoil you are going through. Divorce can impair good decision-making when it comes to sole or shared authority over the children's educational and medical needs.

Throughout the process, we will help you set aside personal disputes when deciding custody and visitation schedules. That starts with a focus on the best interests of the children. Additional factors considered by the court include:

  • Physical and emotional needs of the children
  • Preferences of the children (12 or older)
  • Geographic proximity of the children
  • Keeping siblings together
  • Cooperation between parents
  • The parent who was the primary caregiver
  • Parenting skills and fitness of parents
  • False reports or actual instances of abuse

While we strive to negotiate an agreement between you and your spouse, mediation sometimes fails. Putting control of your child custody case in the hands of a judge requires a skilled and successful trial attorney.
