My Child has Special Needs - How will It Change My Case?

In any custody case, the court's main focus is on the child's best interests. In other words, the court will almost always prioritize doing what it thinks is best for the child over what is convenient for the parents.

However, if the parents disagree on the best way to handle custody, they can each present a proposed parenting plan to the court along with evidence supporting their case. The court will then make a decision based on what would be in the child’s best interest on the parents' behalf and draft a parenting plan that finalizes the custody arrangement.

During special needs custody cases, courts often emphasize ensuring the child has the help and resources they need to live a full, healthy life. So, the court will want evidence to find out which parent can care for the child more effectively.

Additionally, courts may require parents to develop longer-term custody arrangements for special needs children. If a child is likely to need custody or support after reaching majority (becoming a legal adult), the court may require parents to factor that into their proposed parenting plan(s).

At Diggs & Sadler, our Houston special needs custody lawyers have the necessary experience to help you navigate your custody case and obtain the best outcome for your special needs child.
