Texas Divorce Attorney


Tyler Child Custody & Custody Modification

Child Custody and Visitation Lawyer in Tyler, Texas

More Than 15 Years of Experience | Skilled at Resolving Highly Emotional or Disputed Custody Issues

During marriage, parents have an understanding of the rules pertaining to children and the household: who takes the children to school, who shops for groceries and prepares meals and who pays the bills. However, when parents divorce, these rules no longer work. Because the children cannot live with both parents, new rules must be established. If you and your spouse cannot cooperatively formulate those rules as part of a parenting plan, the court will establish one for you.

If you and your ex cannot agree on the terms of custody and/or visitation, you want an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to protect your interests. At the Law Office of Milissa C. Barrick, P.C., in Tyler, Texas, we have aggressively protected the rights of women and men in custody and visitation disputes for more than 15 year. We have considerable experience handling complex custody issues, including relocations or move-aways, as well as custody in military divorce cases.

We emphasize open and direct communication at all times. Attorney Barrick will take the time to learn the details of your situation, as well as your objectives. We’ll keep you apprised of all developments in your case, as well as your options, so that you can make informed decisions that protect you and your family. We are committed to making certain you always know where you stand—we’ll tell you what you need to know, even if it’s not what you want to hear.

Our Representation in Custody and Visitation Disputes

We understand how important it is for you to have a meaningful relationship with your children and to play a vital role in their growth and development. We will aggressively protect your interests throughout the process, working to negotiate a custody arrangement (referred to under Texas law as a “managing conservatorship) that addresses all your child’s needs, including any medical, educational, religious or other special needs. We’ll also work to ensure that any scheduled visitation (now referred to as “access” under Texas law) is fair, beneficial to your children, and feasible for all parties involved.

Attorney Barrick can help you establish temporary custody and visitation, while your divorce is pending. We will also help ensure that the final divorce decree properly states the agreed-upon custody and visitation terms, and will be your advocate even after your divorce is final, should there be a need to modify or enforce your agreement, or to challenge any attempt by your ex to violate or alter the custody/visitation arrangement.
