A good San Antonio child custody lawyer understands the balance between protecting children and preserving parents’ parental rights. Too often in child custody cases, children are caught in the middle, and the emotional toll is high. The best possible outcome is to resolve a San Antonio child custody case quickly and with minimal conflict, and an experienced lawyer, like our team at Wilson Brown, PLLC, helps make that happen.
San Antonio Child Custody Law
In San Antonio, child custody lawyers understand the parental rights and responsibilities at stake in a custody dispute, including:
- Physical custody: the child’s living arrangements, and the responsibilities related to childcare
- Legal custody: a parent’s rights to make decisions about everything from education to religion to health care
The number one focus in a child custody case is to protect the wellbeing of the children involved. It’s important for parents to understand their physical custody and legal custody rights in determining what’s best for the children.
For example, it may be best for one parent to maintain physical custody, but both parents to share legal custody or conservatorship of the child. Child custody also frequently has child support consequences; often, the parent who is awarded primary physical custody of the child receives child support.
Work with a Good San Antonio Child Custody Lawyer to Navigate this Maze
Texas parents should work with experienced San Antonio child custody lawyers to navigate the maze of child custody law. Texas child custody law makes concessions for things like children under the age of 3, or children over 12; the former requiring a more stable environment for developmental reasons, while the latter may express a preference about which parent should have physical custody.
It’s critical for parents to understand their rights and what’s involved in the custody process in order to make the best decisions for the welfare of their children.

Extensive Experience Handling Child Custody and Support Issues
We genuinely believe in providing clients with premium client service. We are a small law firm with four lawyers who make themselves accessible so they can clearly address clients’ concerns and questions. Our role is to provide critical information so clients can make valuable decisions — instead of adding to the emotional drain of a divorce or family law issue.
In child custody proceedings, physical and legal custody needs to be determined based on the children’s best interests. Our number-one focus is to protect the wellbeing of the children involved. We will meticulously explain your child custody options, so you are informed of your parental rights and responsibilities, involving:
- Physical custody, which involves the child’s living arrangements and responsibilities associated with childcare
- Legal custody, which refers to a parent’s right to make decisions concerning issues such as education, religion and health care.
Although child support amounts are decided based on a formula called the Texas Child Support Guidelines, applying those guidelines can be complicated. We are committed to explaining them to you in plain English so no detail will be overlooked.
Representing Clients in Mediation
In Bexar County, divorce proceedings go through mediation when children are involved. This can be a cost-effective way to work with the other side to reach an amicable solution outside of court.
In child custody mediation, our focus is always on determining a custody arrangement that meets the physical, financial, and emotional needs of the children. If mediation is not effective in your situation, however, we are always prepared to help you protect the best interests of your children in court.
