Child Custody Archives

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.

What if my divorce agreement is no longer fair?

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns that nobody, neither courts nor divorcing couples, can see coming. Usually we simply roll with the punches and adjust to what life throws at us, but when the relationships we have with our former spouses and, more importantly, our children are put in jeopardy by these changes, things are not that simple. Fortunately for divorced individuals, the courts are not merciless, and there are policies in place that take these changing circumstances into consideration.

Things to know about child custody in Texas

As you may or may not know, the law varies depending on which state of the country you are in. Whether it is business law, personal injury law or family law, each state has different rules and perceptions of how the law should be interpreted. When a particular legal matter becomes very important to you, such as family law during a divorce, it helps to know what your particular state's laws on the matter are.

What should I know about child custody in Texas?

Child custody in Texas is similar to child custody in many states throughout the United States, though custody is called conservatorship in our states. One of the primary functions of the courts in a child custody case is deciding which parents get which rights for the child. Many parents place the most emphasis on determining primary residence, which grants a parent the right to make the decision where the child lives. Even in a joint managing conservatorship, only one parent will have the right to make this decision.

Mothers lose child custody due to unfit living conditions

One of the most difficult aspects of a divorce is coming to terms with a child custody agreement that you may not find acceptable. Even in best-case child custody scenarios, your relationship with your child will not be the same after a divorce as it was before. However, if you're afraid of losing any kind of involvement in your child's life, you should be able to receive a reasonable custody deal unless you have exhibited serious signs of negligent parenting.

Many arguments exist about the validity of the fathers’ rights movement. Many fathers claim that they face a gender bias in the courts when it comes to child custody arrangements, but others claim that such a gender bias is a thing of the past. A case could be made for each, but one case with abnormal circumstances could again raise the question of how fairly fathers are treated.

Legal perception can affect child custody cases

Marijuana has been legal in Colorado for over a year now, and the herb has been gaining more and more widespread acceptance ever since. Whether its uses are medicinal or recreational, it's becoming less of a criminal offense across the country to possess or smoke marijuana. However, while the political atmosphere may be changing, the legal atmosphere is trailing behind. In states where marijuana is viewed less critically, there have been many instances of child custody scares due to the drug.

Texas man denied child custody by French government

Child custody is at the heart of many ferocious divorce cases. To most, the right to have legal involvement in their child’s upbringing is the most important part of a divorce settlement. Settling child custody disputes can take months of complex legal proceedings, but good parents often end up with joint child custody, though ultimately the courts will do what is best for the child. Sometimes winning custody isn’t enough, however, and unexpected circumstances can prevent parents from having the relationships with their children that they deserve.

Custody battle lasting 2 years strains father/son relationship

For many children, their father is just as important as their mother. Whether their parents live together or not, both can play positive roles in a child’s upbringing. The only condition is that they are willing and suitable parents. In Texas, child custody laws aim to establish arrangements that are in the best interests of the child. However, sometimes this can be extremely difficult to ascertain.
