Making a child custody plan that works

Many people in Texas and throughout America probably have a vision of the court system as conservative and reluctant to change. However, in the realm of family law courts, change has come quite quickly in recent years, as many judges throughout the country begin to embrace a better understanding of how different family dynamics work. In essence, a plan or arrangement that works for one family may not work at all of another. In each case, the facts of the relationships involved are crucial.

The same goes for any cases in which a child custody plan needs to be put into place. The main goal of any court is usually to implement a plan that works and will not need major modifications while the child is a minor. However, that isn't always how it ends up, despite the best intentions of all parties involved.

Making a child custody plan that works can oftentimes call for unique approaches. For example, some courts are now embracing the idea of "nesting," in which the child stays in the same home always and it is the parents who take turns living in the house when it is their time with the child. Alternatively, sometimes the old "joint" custody plans still work, in which the child spends certain nights and weekends with one of the parents, while the other parent is the primary caretaker.

At our law firm, we know that the same child custody plan won't always work in every situation. We do our best to take the time to learn what our clients want and what they need.
