Filing for child custody or modification in Texas

While Texas family laws favor joint child custody to encourage both parents to remain part of a child's life, one parent has the right to file a claim for sole custody of a child. Many factors related to the care of the child, the existing living conditions and the parent's ability to take proper care of the child will be considered in a child custody application. However, there are some basic requirements to be noted prior to filing such a claim.

Can a mother claim child support if she never married the father?

Texas parents have a responsibility to take proper care of their children. Because child support is typically addressed in court during divorce proceedings, parents who never married may be unsure of their rights relating to child support. As marriage is not a prerequisite for child support, parental responsibilities can be determined by the court regardless of a child's parents' marital status.

Child custody and grandparents' rights in Texas

In the busy lifestyles of many Texas parents, extended family -- such as grandparents, uncles and aunts -- play an important part in the lives of their children. Strong bonds are often formed between children and extended family members. While the fundamental legal presumption is that a parent should have child custody and not family members, it is not uncommon for an extended family member to disagree. In certain instances, a family member will take legal action to obtain conservatorship or visitation rights to a child.

Need to protect your assets in property division in Texas?
