When You Have A Child With Special Needs
Work With An Attorney Who Has Stood In Your Shoes
Parents of children with special needs understand the unconditional love and indescribable joy these children can bring to a family. If you are the parent of a disabled child, you also know that the road ahead will not be easy for your child. You would do anything in your power to protect your child, but even determining where to start can be daunting and stressful.
At Brandon Wong & Associates, in San Antonio, we have more than a decade of experience standing up for parents of kids with special needs. Attorneys from our law firm have received a number of awards and honors, including being named among the Top 50 Family Attorneys by Scene In S.A. magazine.
Helping parents care for the health and well-being of their children with special needs is something we hold close to our hearts. We are committed to seeing parents maintain strong relationships with their children. We understand the unique issues that may arise related to health care, education and other matters when children have been diagnosed with conditions like a learning disability, autism, cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy. We recognize that parents may conflict over what is best for the child, and our objective is always to look out for the child’s best interest.
“Under Texas law, child support obligations for children with disabilities run indefinitely. The obligation to provide financial assistance does not end when a child turns 18.”
