Collin County Child Custody Attorney

Family Law Representation For McKinney, Plano, Frisco And Surrounding Areas Since 1987

Parenting plans contain the terms in a court order that relate to child custody, visitation and support. Texas requires a parenting plan to protect the best interests of the children. In most cases, this includes preserving each parent's relationship with the child.

Because each family is unique, the parenting plan should conform to the needs of the family. For this reason, McKinney child custody attorney Diana Porter seeks custody resolutions tailored to her clients' unique circumstances. She understands the importance of not only protecting your child's interests, but also your own. She represents mothers and fathers, married and unmarried, involved in child-related legal matters in Collin County, Texas

Establishing Effective Parenting Plans

Ms. Porter focuses on helping clients obtain creative and sustainable parenting plans that make sense given their unique needs. This includes determining:

  • Conservatorship, the legal term for custody and the distribution of parental rights
  • A workable visitation schedule
  • Child support and other support obligations

These issues are most often decided by agreement through negotiation, mediation or the Collaborative Law process. Negotiated settlement agreements allow parents more flexibility and control in creating effective custody, visitation and child support arrangements. Diana Porter works diligently to assist her clients in developing amicable parenting plans that meet the unique needs of the family.

However, not every case can or will be resolved by agreement. In these child-related cases, Ms. Porter is an experienced and effective advocate for her clients before the Collin County courts.
