Lawmakers discuss means to improve child custody laws

| Mar 6, 2014 | Child Custody |

Not all relationships work out. Often, it is healthier for some couples to go their separate ways. When there are children involved, it is necessary for parents to reach an agreement on the child or children’s future care. For some, this is a simple decision to reach, while others may find the process a lot more lengthy and difficult. The most important aspect of arranging child custody, however, is the well-being of the child. Legislation in Texas and across the United States strives to reflect this.

Currently, lawmakers in a number of states are discussing this legislation in an effort to increase fairness for both parents. Some people feel that judges have a tendency to favor a child’s mother in custody disputes. However, both parents have a role in a child’s life. As long as each parent is fit and willing to care for the child, joint custody may seem like a good option.

Several states are debating new legislation to encourage the awarding of joint custody more frequently. The concept has been met with varied feelings. Some groups feel that the discussion was focused on the desires of the parent rather than the needs of the child. Added to that were any number of logistical obstacles. These included the distance parents lived from each other and how to split the child’s time fairly without disrupting their day-to-day life.

Ultimately, each state aims to reach a decision that best favors the needs of the child. This is no different in Texas. During a divorce or separation, it is important to quickly reach a custody agreement that is fair to both parents, but also one that is in the best interests of the child.
