Texas Drill Sergeant Wins Back Custody of Daughter

When a marriage ends and there are children involved, the divorce process may sometimes be more complicated. A child custody dispute can often be an emotionally trying time for both parents and children. This is especially true when there are circumstances involved that can add complexity to the issue.

As our readers in Houston may be aware, a drill sergeant has won custody of his 2-year-old daughter after a judge ruled in his favor. His ex-wife, who had then been residing in their Texas home, had put the girl up for adoption without his consent or knowledge. The child had been born while the drill sergeant was away on military service.

The Utah couple that had adopted the girl decided to drop the appeal against the decision, citing the emotional and psychological well-being of the child as their main worry. The drill sergeant is currently slated to begin a desk job in Hawaii and is transferring from his current posting in Fort Jackson to accommodate his transition into single-parenthood.

Complicated child custody issues can lead to long legal battles, especially if the circumstances are unique. In the case of the drill sergeant and his daughter, the mother had made a decision without consultation with the father. It is important that individuals facing child custody battles be aware of their legal options. A fair compromise may often be in the best interests of the child.

One of the best decisions I have ever made was to hire Ms. Cheryl Alsandor. I am very please and grateful, she is by far the most knowledgeable and efficient attorney i have ever dealt with. Her knowledge to destroy an opponent in a court room is incredible. Her ability to catch them in lies and ask the questions to make them look like the idiots they are is key. If you have a serious court issue for family or custody, you need to hire Ms. Alsandor. She knows the law and can see through the opponents lies and intentioal missleading actions. The Judges are sometimes is blinded by the lies of the other side if you dont have a excellent attorney to clear the path for the judge. Ms. Alsandor will clear the path and let the judge see the truth and you will be victorious. Follow your gut and trust Ms. Alsandor. You will be glad you did, believe me. D.

Mrs. Alsandor is an excellent attorney; but most of she is a very empathetic person. This is what separated her from the other attorneys I consulted before hiring her. She helped me during one of the most diffcult times of my life. I was divorcing my wife and fighting for primary custody of my 10 year old son. I actually did not think I would be granted custody being that I am a man and the court systems usually favorite women as being the primary custodian. However after I consulted with Mrs. Alsandor she basically assured me she would do everything legally possible to assure that I was granted custody. Mrs. Alsandor was very understanding, kind and very compassionate. I felt as if she had taken my case personally and this was her fight as well. She responded to my many phone calls and emails; and there were a lot(because of my nerves) Her prices were very reasonable for the extraordinary work that she does. I recently recommend her to one of my co-workers and he noticed the very same qualities. Mrs. Alsandor was God sent. I am happy to report I did win primary custody of my son. We are doing well and we are very happy all thanks to Mrs. Alsandor. Nelson D.

My case was handled well, with professionalism and within a reasonable time frame. I would recommend Attorney Alsandor to anyone because she is straight forward and stayed within the guidelines of the law. I did not have to worry about winning my case because she had it under control. I especially like that I did not have to do a lot of work like traveling to her office and missing meetings at my office because we communicated via email, where I could sign the documents and scan and send it. Lastly, her prices where affordable and I was able to easily pay online, which again saved me time. Steven
