Conservatorship in situations involving domestic violence

In typical child custody cases, many experts agree that it is best when both parents have an active and significant role in their children's lives. Achieving this may require parents in Austin to set aside their differences and work hard to get along for the sake of their children, even in the midst of a divorce or other difficult breakup.

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 right child custody arrangement for your family

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.

The basics about child custody

When Texas residents are going through a divorce, many find that the child custody issue is the most emotional part of the process. A divorce can be tough on anyone, but couples who have children sometimes feel like the divorce process is particularly hard on them. That is why these couples think long and hard about whether the marriage is worth trying to save, or if divorce is inevitable.

Understand your options in a child custody dispute

Texas residents know that divorces or other relationship break-ups can be a difficult time in anyone's life, but if there are children involved from the relationship the circumstances can be even more complicated. When there are children involved, you can't just move on, in most cases. Couples will need to reach an agreement, or have a judge make a ruling, on child custody.

Texas Grandparent Visitation

Can grandparent visitation be legally awarded over the objection of a parent in Texas? Yes. Texas law does permit a biological or adoptive grandparent to seek direct visitation to grandchildren. In practice, however, this is a very difficult case to make.

Guideline Child Support in Texas Divorce and Child Custody Litigation

In Texas divorce and child custody litigation, the phrase "guideline child support" gets thrown around quite a bit. What is guideline child support and how is it calculated? Is it possible that an obligor (i.e., the person legally obligated to pay child support) will have to pay more (or less) than guideline child support? This article explores and answers these questions.
