Attorney Catherine Benouis is board-certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and uniquely qualified to help you pursue outcomes that protect your rights and your child’s well-being.

Designing Custody And Visitation Plans For All Types Of Families

Determining where a child will live and when they will see each parent is one of the most pressing concerns for divorcing or separating parents.

Texas laws recognize and prioritize the importance of parents sharing decision-making responsibilities. Courts also find that having frequent and continuing contact with both parents is often in a child’s best interests. However, sharing time and responsibilities may not always work for parents or promote a child’s welfare.

In either case, Ms. Benouis will fight to ensure that child custody and visitation orders are appropriate and tailored to your specific needs.

Overcoming Child Support Challenges

Child support payments can also be a thorny issue with parents, regardless of whether they pay or receive support. You can face challenges regarding:

  • Paternity
  • Orders for support
  • Calculating child support
  • Enforcing existing orders

These financial concerns affect both parents and children, so legal guidance will be essential as they arise.

Pursuing Peaceful Solutions When Possible

Any legal issue affecting a child’s sense of stability must be taken seriously. To that end, attorney Catherine Benouis focuses first on resolving child-related legal issues cooperatively through mediation or collaboration. These alternative dispute resolution approaches can shield children from unnecessarily bitter conflicts and help parents work together rather than fight against each other.

However, litigation can become necessary for a number of reasons. Under these circumstances, she will not hesitate to fight aggressively in court for your rights and your child’s best interests.

Helping Families Today And Tomorrow

Ms. Benouis knows how important the support and well-being of your children are to you, and she and her staff aim to help families find real long-term solutions.

Before and during a split, she will advocate on your behalf and inform you of your legal options and rights. Post-divorce, she can assist with the enforcement of current agreements regarding custody, schedules and child support.

She also works with parents needing or responding to requests for modifications to custody, schedules and child support.
