Texas woman reunited with her daughter, who was taken to Mexico

Most child custody disputes involve whether or not the court-ordered custody agreement is fair to both parents. Especially in sole managing conservatorships, parents are often not in agreement regarding who gets to spend how much time with the child, and understandably both parents want to be involved in decisions about the child's upbringing. However, for a few individuals, custody issues are even more serious and more terrible. In some rare instances, one parent simply absconds with the child to another state or even another country.

Texas law can be very difficult and confusing when it comes to matters of child custody and child support. The primary goal of the courts is to do what is best for the child, which means a custody arrangement that is in the best interests of the child and determining child support that ensures that the child will be provided for as it grows. Unfortunately, Texas courts can get a little zealous when it comes to these support orders, and it can be very difficult to have them changed.

Family law can affect your life through divorce and beyond

While criminal defense law may be featured most heavily in popular Hollywood films, family law is an extremely important legal practice for many individuals and families. The decisions made during and after a divorce case do not only affect the divorcing couple, but also any children born from the marriage, as well as grandparents who may or may not be able to maintain a relationship with their grandchildren. Family law is a complex, multifaceted legal practice that can completely alter the course of a child's life.

Your actions can affect perceptions in family law cases

Family law covers a wide array of topics. From prenuptial agreements to divorces, there are laws in place to dictate the legal precedents of any conflict. Of all of these family law topics, those involving children are considered by many to be the most important. Children are the precious future of our world, and almost everyone who has children wants what’s best for them.

Family Law issues range from custody to prenuptial agreements

Family Law is a multifaceted practice, covering issues ranging from domestic abuse to prenuptial agreements, from divorce and custody to adoption and child support. In recent years, Family Law has begun to have an impact for an entirely new demographic of people: same-sex couples. The gay equality movement continues to gain momentum across our country, with seven states legalizing same-sex marriage in the last year alone. If same-sex married couples move to a state that does not license same-sex marriage, they could find themselves facing more than one complex issue, especially if same-sex couples ever decide to get divorced.

Federal judge prepares to rule on same-sex couples

Families go through all kinds of changes in their lifetimes. People marry and divorce. Custody arrangements have to be made. Children are born or adopted. People die. In Texas, family law aims to ensure the preservation of the well-being of all members of a family unit. Recently, however, several states including Texas have been considering whether there should be any difference in these laws when a family involves a same-sex couple.

Prenuptial agreements lessen pain of divorce

Texas couples in the throes of strong mutual attraction are rarely thinking about the possible end of their relationship. In fact, just the opposite is true if they are planning for a happy future together by virtue of marriage. Some marriages end in divorce, however, and the change symbolizes a good thing and a fresh start.

Handling family legal issues is rarely easy, especially when a child is involved. Paying money toward child support is just one of many aspects of divorce or separation that can cause complications in a parent's life. Whether it's establishing the amount to be paid or coming up with the finances to pay in full each month, making payments can be a constant source of pressure and stress.

How the family pet can factor into a divorce

As many Texas residents may be aware, the role of pets in a family is very important. To many families, the pet is not just a "thing" or even a "pet"; their dog or cat becomes a crucial member of their family. There are even families who think of their dog or cat (or any other pet) as the son or daughter they never had.
