Helping Texas residents reach peaceful custody arrangements

Child custody is arguably the single most important factor, both objectively and subjectively, in any divorce that involves children. In nearly every instance, maintaining a significant relationship with the child or children is of the utmost importance to both parents, and children want to see both of their parents often as well. It is also crucial to the healthy development and well-being of the child for both parents to come to an amicable agreement regarding child custody and the divorce in general.

Helping Texas parents with their custodial rights

Texas has two different types of custody arrangements available between divorcing parents: joint managing conservatorship and sole managing conservatorship. These two categories are extremely similar to standard joint custody arrangements and sole custody arrangements, with a joint managing conservatorship seeing parents share in making important decisions such as health care and religious upbringing, and a sole managing conservatorship ensuring that only one parent makes such decision. However, while it can be helpful to understand these different arrangements, it is perhaps more important to understand the factors that go into determining them.

My ex is disobeying visitation orders. What are my options?

When it comes to child custody, courts are often extremely specific regarding the custody orders that are given. More than simply determining which parent is granted primary or physical custody of the child, child custody often comes with visitation orders that detail specifically when and where physical custody of the child will change. For example, you may have a custody order that states you must meet your wife at the public library at noon to give her custody of the child.

Man claims his custodial rights were infringed upon

If you have gone through a divorce and the child custody agreement between you and your former spouse has been finalized, you may think that your child custody issues are a thing of the past. Unfortunately, this is not necessarily true, as custody orders can change depending on the circumstances. Additionally, there are other parties who may seek involvement in the custody arrangement, which could further complicate matters.

Man who allegedly absconded with son years ago arrested in NY

There are almost no instances in which child custody is not a heated issue between divorcing couples. Some couples are fortunate enough and part on amicable enough terms to agree on custody issues, but oftentimes former spouses want to minimize the time a child spends with his or her other parent. It makes sense when you think about the fact that the couples divorced for a reason, and parents do not want their children influenced by the bad behaviors that caused the divorce in the first place.

How can I deal with my ex-spouse ignoring visitation rights?

It is extremely important for the healthy development and well-being of a child that parents remain civil with one another, assuming that they cannot get along. Tensions may run understandably high in the aftermath of a divorce, and it is not unreasonable that former spouses do not wish to see one another, but these parents are encouraged to put the needs of the child first. Unfortunately, some parents attempt to deny visitation.

Factors that affect who gets custody

When you are going through a divorce, your circumstances will affect what is most important to you. For some people, keeping their favorite or most precious assets from the marriage is important, but for most couples who have children, the custody arrangement is what truly matters. When you have lived years of your life seeing your children every day, the idea that you will only get occasional visitation rights is terrifying. Knowing the best ways to make a strong case for custody can help you avoid this.

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.

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.

Can I change my child custody order?

Texas courts do their best when it comes to determining child support and child custody in a divorce case, but they cannot possibly plan for unexpected future occurrences. Child custody and support orders are made based on each parent's circumstances at the time of the divorce and the way in which those circumstances are presented. But we all know that life is anything but static, and the only thing constant is change.
