What factors do Texas courts consider in child custody?

| Mar 27, 2015 | 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.

This article explains the Texas child custody system well, and can give you valuable insight into what the courts will be looking at when determining conservatorship (custody). Obviously the well-being of the child takes top priority, and courts will assign a conservatorship that is healthiest for the child physically, psychologically, and emotionally. Studies indicate that children do well with involvement from both parents, so the courts will take into account the likelihood of a parent promoting a healthy relationship with their ex-spouse.

A Texas judge will also take the child’s wishes into consideration, but depending on the age of the child, this may not hold as much weight as other factors. As the article will tell you, meeting with an attorney is extremely beneficial to your chances of getting a fair custody arrangement because the law changes fairly often.

If you are going through a divorce and you are worried about child custody, or even if you have gone through a divorce and wish to modify your arrangement, it is in your best interests to meet with an attorney. A legal professional with experience in child custody law can ensure you present the best case possible for your involvement in your child’s life.
