Texas residents going through a divorce have quite a few issues to address to resolve the case, but perhaps none are as important as the main issues that involve children: child custody and child support. Each family is different, so, in many cases, different child custody arrangements may work better for one family over another. What is important is to get the right child custody arrangement for your family.
Doing so, however, is oftentimes easier said than done. For starters, the couple going through the divorce, in many cases, has built-up animosity that may make it difficult to negotiate an agreement on child custody out of court. In other cases, even though the couple may be amicable enough with one other, their opinions may differ so much that it could be difficult for them to reach a good arrangement.
Most parents going through a divorce probably hope to be able to reach an agreement on what would be best for their children without needing to fight it out in the courtroom. Unfortunately, that is not always a possibility for many couples.
