Protecting the Rights of Fathers, Mothers, Grandparents, and Children

Arriving at a decision about child custody and visitation can be one of the most difficult things to do during a divorce or the breakup of a relationship. Many parents fear that their relationship with their child will become less close. But if there is one thing we’ve learned over the years, it’s that families and children are resilient. While this may not be what you originally intended for your family, you and your child will get through this together. And you may find that you and your former partner find new and better ways to work together.

Different families have different needs when it comes to child custody cases. At Johnson McNulty all your bases are covered. Some parents are involved in high-conflict relationships and absolutely need a child custody lawyer who is aggressive at trial. We have child custody lawyers who are skilled at taking cases to trial.We’ll be by your side with facts AND case law. We rehearse with our clients before any court appearance so they feel confident sharing their story.

Most cases won’t end up in court, though. Most parents will work together to arrive at a custody agreement that gives both parents the time and resources they need to ensure the well-being of their child. They may want to work with a mediator to iron out the details. We have those attorneys, too.

Complicated Child Custody Cases Are No Complication for Us

We don’t shy away from the complicated cases, including child custody cases when:

  • One of the parents will be living abroad
  • A parent is a member of the military and may be deployed overseas
  • A parent is involved in a career that keeps him/her away from home
  • The parents are a same-sex couple or one of the parents is gay/lesbian and a former partner is bringing suit against them as an unfit parent because of sexual orientation (we’ve handled these cases before)

Grandparent Rights

Grandparents do have rights under Texas family law, but it is not easy to assert those rights. You WILL need a lawyer to help you. Grandparents can file for custody of a grandchild if they can make a case that it is in the child’s best interest (such as cases of child abuse or when a parent is incompetent or in jail).

Grandparents can seek visitation with a child if the child’s parents are divorced, but the grandparent does not have an absolute right to visitation if the parents do not agree. If you would like help getting custody or visitation of a grandchild, call and talk to a child custody lawyer at Johnson McNulty: 817-576-6537. Schedule a consultation at our office, or by Zoom teleconference.We serve clients in Fort Worth, and Cleburne, TX.

I can’t say thank you to Jeff, Chloe, and Lupe at Johnson, Loyd & Schmitz, PLLC enough. Jeff’s skillful practice in the courtroom, cognizant strategies to decrease financial burdens, and everyone’s time and diligence in preparation have been amazing. They always answer phone calls and emails with a quick and knowledgeable response. The whole office has been very kind and empathetic towards me despite my sometimes exhausted and emotionally wrecked communications. The whole group shows that they truly care and fight for their families. I can’t recommend this group enough. So very thankful for them!!

A few months ago I found myself to be a target of the one of the most oppressive and powerful entities in the Texas government- The Office of the Attorney General- Child Support Division. This out of control entity has little to no oversight and is empowered to wreck lives with NO REPERCUSSIONS. I tried to find someone in the OAG management to help correct the situation but that only escalated the attack against me and my livelihood. They seized my bank accounts and and placed liens against my property. Fortunately for me I turned to the law firm of Johnson, Loyd and Schmitz. Mr. Johnson put together a legal plan of action and moved quickly to provide relief to my situation. I put my trust and future into his hands, and just as David slew the Mighty giant Goliath-so Mr Johnson brought the mighty Office of the Attorney General to its knees. My life and property are now secure from improper confiscation and harassment from this entity. Thank you Mr Johnson you were truly a God send when my future was bleak at best. A grateful client, Larry Morris

I recently was looking for a family law attorney and sent in a request for consultation with Johnson, Loyd, & Schmitz. I was contacted by Jeff who was amazing. He wasn’t pushy and he was extremely personable. He guided me and gave me the advice I needed. I would recommend anyone to call on this team if they are in need of legal services. Thank you guys and if I need any legal services again I will be coming back!
