Compassionate Texas Special Needs Child Custody Attorney

Dissolution proceedings involving parents with a special needs child can raise unique challenges. Parents with a special needs child may have disagreements about what is best for their child's education, medical care or upbringing. After a divorce, disputes concerning the welfare of a special needs child may continue to arise between parents and may result in a legal action for the modification of an existing conservatorship (custody) or possession schedule (visitation).

Even when parents work together cooperatively, they may not understand how to best protect their legal rights and put into place a parenting plan that carefully states their wishes and mutual obligations. The best way for parents to protect their rights is to speak with an experienced family law attorney.

For help in the Richardson-Plano-Garland area or surrounding communities, contact the Law Offices of Sharon Merrick. I provide experienced and highly personalized representation for clients in a wide range of family law matters, including divorce, custody and visitation matters involving a special needs child.

Protect Your Family And Your Rights

As a lawyer, it is my goal to protect the safety and well-being of children, and I always advise clients to consider their children's needs first in any custody dispute. However, I understand that disputes may arise between parents as to what is best for a minor child. Cases involving children with special needs can be particularly challenging for all parties involved.

As your lawyer, I will take time to listen to you, understand your objectives and help you understand your legal rights. I will negotiate with your spouse (or his or her counsel) to seek a resolution that will protect your parental rights and the welfare of your children. I am an aggressive litigator, but I have also resolved many custody and visitation matters by negotiation and mediation.

My Experience And Background

Prior to starting my law practice, I was a special education major in college and spent many years working with special needs children. As an attorney practicing exclusively in family law, I focus a lot of my practice on custody and visitation matters. If you need a strong and passionate advocate who will put you and your children first, I am here to help.
