What factors do Texas courts consider in child custody?

Arguably the most important part of any divorce in which there are children involved is determining the custody arrangement children. Many parents have a hard time accepting that they will only be partially involved in their child's life, and depending on the state of the parents' relationship at the time of divorce, they may be loath to let their former spouse spend any time with the children. We often talk about how courts do what is in the best interests of the child, but you may wonder how they determine that.

We fight for fathers' rights in a divorce case

There is an ongoing debate about the validity of the so-called men's rights movement, with some believing that men are genuinely being slighted in today's society, and others believing it to be a frightened backlash against the growing equality in our nation. As a result, there are differing opinions on the topic of fathers' rights when it comes to divorce cases. Regardless of how you feel about the treatment of men in our society, it is important to understand all sides of an issue before making judgement.

Military divorce rate continues four-year decline

In last week's post, we talked about how pensions and child support are treated in a military divorce. These divorces are often unfortunate side-effects of military service, with one or both parties realizing that their relationship cannot survive the months apart and the constant moving about as the military member is stationed all across the country. The last thing that a military member who is deployed overseas needs to worry about is how the time spent apart will affect their relationship.

Pension and child support in military divorces

While there are definitely many ways in which military divorce and civilian divorce differ, there are also many ways in which they are similar. Issues of asset division and child support are still determined in the divorce proceedings, but there are usually even more issues at play in military divorces. On top of questions about jurisdiction and residency, the military member's ability to spend time with the child will affect the custody arrangement, and any military pensions or benefits will need to be divided.
