Child custody in Texas: what you need to know
Texas families navigating the divorce process know how difficult it can be to make important decisions regarding child custody and other important factors. It is important to have the assistance of a lawyer who can help you successfully maneuver through this difficult process, especially when there is disagreement regarding child custody. An lawyer familiar with Texas divorce law can help you pursue your ideal outcome.
There are many factors that influence how child custody is determined by the court. When two parents cannot work together to come to a reasonable custody arrangement, the court will prioritize the best interests of the children and make decisions accordingly. A parent’s legal team can present evidence that may influence the court decision. These legal battles can be complicated, especially when they involve allegations of abuse, neglect or even drug use. Our team has experience successfully navigating these types of complicated cases on behalf of our clients.
Texas family law courts typically prefer to grant joint custody to parents, with one parent retaining primary physical custody. Parents also have educational rights and an influence in the religious upbringing of his or her child. If parents are willing to work together, it may be possible for both parties to come to an agreement that details the rights and duties of each parent.
