Frequently, both parents believe that they should be the parent with the right to establish the primary residence of the children, and have facts that support their respective assertion. So, what happens? If the case is not resolved through negotiations or mediation, the case will be tried, leaving the decision up to a Judge or jury to decide.

That's when you need the experienced legal representations of Lewisville family law attorneys at Hammerle, Finley & Scroggins to step in and help out. Click the link above to find out what we can do for you.
