Professional Guidance For The KidFirst Parent
Are you a parent concerned about your children’s future? Do you feel like the other parent gets in the way of what you know is best for them? Are you willing to do whatever it takes to protect them?
If so, you are what we call a KidFirst Parent, and you’re exactly who we help.
I meet parents every day who care about their kids. I know you’re one of them or you wouldn’t be on this site. But caring is not enough to retain our firm. We accept only KidFirst Parents, the kind of parents who prioritize their children’s welfare above all other concerns.
That doesn’t mean we want parents who will lay down when the other side demands too much. Quite the opposite. The parents we serve know when to fight and when to work with their co-parent, because KidFirst Decision Making allows them to see when each appropriate is best.
What may surprise you is that I also care about your children and hope you’ll see that in all we do. We don’t just teach KidFirst Decision Making, we practice it. It’s built into our firm’s DNA, and we hold ourselves accountable.
A Different Kind Of Law Firm
My name is Angela Faye Brown and I created this law firm to help parents. But I come at it from a unique angle.
You see, I know how important you are as a parent. I know that when I protect your rights and empower you to make thoughtful, independent choices, I’m also helping your vulnerable kids. Nothing is more important to me than giving power to great parents. It comes from my long history of helping children.
My firm empowers you by teaching and practicing KidFirst Decision Making. We give you the tools, including legal tools, that protect your children.
I Now See How Important A Strong Parent Is
For years, I’ve operated under the hope that every parent wants to be great. I’ve believed that I can best serve kids by teaching co-parents to work together for the benefit of the children. Through hard experience, I’ve learned that it’s not so simple.
There are bad parents out there. I’ve worked on dozens of CPS cases and seen how ugly life can be for some children. Their parents might be narcissistic, controlling, bullying, and insensitive. Maybe they have drug or alcohol addictions that harm the innocent, or they become so obsessed with money that they forget what’s important.
Not everyone is a KidFirst Parent. Those who aren’t still have rights that deserve protection, but I need to empower parents like you. You deserve every protection the law can give, and decision-making powers and appropriate contact to raise up strong and healthy children.
I’ve learned that I can use the law to raise up KidFirst Parents. Here’s how:
- If you are KidFirst, let’s empower you to do your best through clear divorce decrees or well-crafted custody orders;
- if you want to become KidFirst, let’s help you get your foot back in the door of your child’s life through modified orders and responding to attacks by the other parent against you; and
- if the other parent isn’t KidFirst, let’s enforce the rules to protect the kids through an enforcement action.
How Am I So Different?
As Founding Attorney, I was able to build the law firm that I believed needed to exist. Angela Faye Brown & Associates is unique because I decided to risk the business and be honest about who I am.
Long before law school, I cared about how law and policy impacts children. I earned two public policy degrees and a J.D. from the University of Texas at Austin. During law school, I took up children’s issues as student counsel in the Children’s Rights Clinic.
Under the supervision of such legal luminaries as Jack Sampson (he literally wrote the book on Texas family law), I represented children who’d been removed from their homes in Child Protective Services cases. These children showed me the courage, confusion, and concern found inside every child in trouble.
And now I’m a mom, and this concern for little ones takes on new meaning. It’s personal for me as it is for you. As much as the legal industry rewards the “bulldog attorneys” who turn everything into a drawn out trial, my primary concern is those children.
I’m honest about that because you deserve to know who you’re working with. I fight when it’s time to fight, and I negotiate when it’s time to make a deal. Whatever empowers you to be a better parent, I’ll do it. I just need you to trust me and to take the next step.
Use Court To Get Some KidFirst Control
If your family has suffered, the list of problems is long. But not every problem needs a legal solution. When you have that kind of issue, you need a lawyer who’s committed to using the legal system to your advantage.
You’re here because you’re exhausted. You’ve tried for so long, maybe for years. You’ve read the books and you’ve gone to therapy. You spent long nights blaming yourself while cleaning up the mess. You’ve wondered how you let it get so bad.
It’s time to use the law to seize some control.
The legal system is a tool, and tools are meant to accomplish something. What do you want to accomplish?
- Are you stuck in a battle with the other parent over how to best care for kids after your relationship is over? Then I’ll file a divorce or custody suit.
- Has the other parent taken your child in violation of a court’s possession order? Then I’ll file a habeas corpus action.
- Are the kids being used as a weapon, with the other parent talking bad about you and confusing your children? Then I’ll file a parental alienation suit.
- Did you not get your children back when you should have, or were you denied crucial time that a court guaranteed? Then I’ll file an enforcement.
These are the kinds of solutions that only the law can provide. No amount of self help will return kids to you, or punish a bad actor. You have to take control because the other parent won’t give it up.
Are You Ready To Use The Law To Protect Your Kids?
Ask yourself these three questions:
First, do you feel like your child’s future is at risk?
Second, are you dealing with a parent who doesn’t seem to put the kids first?
Finally, are you willing to do what it takes to protect your children?
If you answered yes to all these questions then we are the firm for you.
Use the law. You will not be an absentee parent. You have rights, and they matter to me, because good parents deserve expert help.
