Child Custody Attorney - Southlake, Texas


Michelle Purvis understands the seriousness of child custody disputes and is dedicated to helping clients gain or maintain custody of their children. In cases involving child custody disputes and the development of visitation plans, a custom-tailored strategy is developed that focuses on the straightest path to resolution. Minimizing the negative impact on children is a priority.


Michelle will tenaciously represent you in all issues related to child custody including establishing child custody and visitation, modification of prior custody and visitation orders, relocation and moving away after divorce, emergencies requiring immediate hearings and orders by the court, and enforcement of child custody and visitation orders.


With interest and experience in dealing with challenging child custody and visitation issues, Michelle can help you navigate issues such as:


  • Child custody and visitation orders for children with special developmental or medical needs
  • Drug or alcohol abuse by a parent
  • Psychiatric and psychological issues that are negatively impacting the parent-child relationship
  • Parental alienation or defending against accusations of alienation
  • High-conflict dynamics between parents
  • Protection for children in danger by obtaining emergency orders from the court
  • Emergency orders for return of children held in violation of court orders
  • Relocation and moving away after divorce

In a child custody or visitation case, Michelle understands the necessity of working with mental-health professionals, amicus attorneys appointed by the court, ad litem attorneys, parenting facilitators, parenting coordinators, counselors, and teachers to ensure that the best interest of the child is protected.


When parents work together at co-parenting, conflict is minimized and a healthier environment is created for children. However, in some instances, parents are unable to agree regarding matters relating to their children. When contested hearings or trials are necessary, Michelle will zealously represent you in court to protect both you and your children.


The outcome of your child custody or visitation case will have a substantial and long-lasting impact on your child’s life. Contact Michelle Purvis Law, PLLC to discuss how to protect the best interest of your child in a way that creates a healthy family life for your child.
