Child custody/child support

Helping Parents Protect Their Parent-Child Bond

We know that parents’ worlds revolve around their children and that even if the relationship between both parents changes, it doesn’t change their love or dedication for their kids. However, it can change how everyone relates to one another, so, naturally, these kinds of cases evoke passionate responses from the people involved.

At Terrazas Henkel, P.C., our lawyers help parents protect their parental rights and the rights of their children in light of divorce, separation, and other circumstances. We work with mothers and fathers, and we can help you find fair and reasonable parenting time (child custody), parental contact (visitation), and child support arrangements.

We can also help you modify orders for custody, visitation, and support as your circumstances change. Need help to enforce prior orders when a parent fails to comply with the terms of the parenting plan or child support directive? Call us, and our experienced team will back you up.

We can also assist in matters of establishing paternity and legitimation, as well as pursuing custody and/or visitation rights for grandparents.

Negotiation When Possible; Litigation When Needed

Our primary tool is negotiation, but we are also able to help you by representing you in mediation, or if necessary, litigation in court. We find the healthiest and most-enduring results come when both parents can agree on terms that serve their children; however, we are tenacious litigators when a court battle is unavoidable, or negotiation is unproductive.

We aim always to provide you — and your children —with the best outcomes possible for their situations.
