To often, what's best for the children can take the back seat to emotions and the mechanics of divorce. In these instances an Amicus Attorney can be appointed by a judge to asses and advocate for the children involved in divorce or custody modification cases.
Texas Family Code defines an Amicus Attorney as:
an attorney appointed by the court in a suit, other than a suit filed by a governmental entity, whose role is to provide legal services necessary to assist the court in protecting a child's best interests rather than to provide legal services to the child.
As an Amicus Attorney we believe in creating an open and collaborative environment that allows all parties to share their opinions on a child's environment, development and custody. Creating an honest and safe place for your children to express their thoughts freely is a critical step in amicus services.
