Issues I Can Address

When a legal matter is affecting your family, you deserve answers sooner rather than later. As your attorney, my goal is to seek a meaningful solution in an efficient and comprehensive fashion. Reach out to me when you need assistance in a case involving Child Protective Services (CPS), child custody, or divorce.

Child Protective Services

If your child was removed from your care, or if you’re dealing with CPS for a different reason, it is imperative that you talk to an attorney as soon as possible. At the Law Office of Dawn R Hedlund, PLLC, I can investigate the reason CPS was called to your home. Some of the most common reasons include reports of:

  • Child abuse

  • Child neglect

  • Child endangerment

  • Domestic violence

  • Drug or alcohol abuse

  • Another criminal act by one parent

Protecting your child is your top priority; protecting your rights is mine. Contact me for the dedicated representation you need during a CPS case in the state of Texas.

Let me put my years of experience to work for you and your family. I'm ready to help you pursue the resolution you need.

Child Custody & Modifications

Child custody issues are some of the most emotional cases of family law. Many people often find that compromising a custody agreement is easier said than done. Most people hope to settle custody disputes through mediation, which involves you and your child’s other parent meeting with an unbiased third party in order to resolve the issue.

However, some cases end up reaching litigation. During a child custody hearing, the court will listen to both sides and make a decision based on what it deems best for the child. If you’re currently trying to navigate a custody dispute in the Frisco, Texas, area, reach out to me for skilled legal representation. I can also work with you and your child's other parent to modify an existing custody arrangement.


Filing for divorce is rarely easy, but it may be necessary for you to move forward with the life you deserve. Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, I’m ready to be your partner during every step of the process and help you seek the outcome you deserve.

Understanding your rights in terms of your divorce is critical to the success of your case. I’ll work to make sure you’re aware of them as we address the division of debts, retirements/401(k)s, and pension amounts to which you are entitled. If you are also hoping to secure an order for spousal support, I am prepared to help you build a strong case.

Seek a Brighter Future for Your Family
