Police, Fire & Service Member Possession
Police officers, firefighters and military members provide a tremendous service to our society, which could not function as we know it without their sacrifices. Unfortunately, their often-unpredictable schedules can make it difficult to reach an agreement on a child custody or visitation arrangement.
At the Law Offices of Mark M. Childress, PLLC., in Fort Worth, we believe that these parents should not be punished for what they do for a living. We provide strong advocacy to police officers, firefighters and service members, focusing on achieving solutions that allow them to fully exercise their visitation, possession and access rights.
The first step in protecting your parental rights is calling us at 817-497-8148 for an initial consultation with an attorney.
You Have The Right To See Your Child
As long as you are a fit parent who is not placing your child in danger of physical or emotional harm, you have the right to visitation and access. Your nontraditional hours or the on-call nature of your profession does not make you unfit.
We strive to maximize the time you have with your child and guarantee visitation and access through a standard or deviated schedule. Our ability to negotiate and construct creative parenting plans is our strong suit. Beyond what we are able to do for our clients in these situations, cooperation between parents is another key to making a challenging situation work.

The Opinions That Matter Most
My questions were heard and answered without having to ask twice.
“Value a capable team with experienced staff. For the past 9 months, the folks at the Law Offices of Mark Childress handled my case with class and empathy. My questions were heard and answered without having to ask twice. I felt like I was kept in the loop and always briefed properly. As I move forward with other ventures I wouldn't be surprised if we crossed paths again. And hats off to Konner, THANK YOU!”
Mark was there to answer every question, every phone call and did it in a way that I felt as if I were his only client.
“I needed an attorney who would stand up for me and my child during a very hard time. Mark was there to answer every question, every phone call and did it in a way that I felt as if I were his only client. He was very knowledgeable not only about the law but about the opposing attorney and the judge. He prepared me well and we won our case. I would recommend Mark Childress to anyone who is fighting for custody or in need of child support.”
I highly recommend him and his staff. They are courteous, prompt and they care.
“I called in inquiring about a divorce and how it all happens. I had 2 people call me back within an hour and in an hour maybe 2 I was talking with the lawyer. I highly recommend him and his staff. They are courteous, prompt and they care. Divorce is the hardest thing we will go through minus losing a kid and his team will be retained. He even called me back himself the next day to see how I was. Great service.”
This guy is amazing. In a matter of minutes, he accomplished what no other attorney could in 6 years.
“This guy is amazing. In a matter of minutes, he accomplished what no other attorney could in 6 years. He had my case figured out in 1short conversation and had what he called "a convoluted mess" fixed. I'm pretty sure my ex felt like he'd been hit by a bus. My family is finally in tact and everyone is finally happy.”
