What To Know About Texas Child Custody Rights
In many cases, when a client thinks of child custody, they imagine an all-or-nothing situation that pits one parent against the other in a winner-takes-all competition, with the child as the prize. But court-ordered possession schedules routinely provide close-to-equal visitation time for the noncustodial parent. Most custody orders allow and encourage both custodial and noncustodial parents to participate actively in every possible aspect of the children’s lives. As in the past, child custody still is determined by the best interests of the child. Courts no longer automatically award child custody to the mother.
Like most family law matters, the determination of child custody is complex. You can rely on our team to help you with all issues related to possession and access, including:
- Joint and sole physical custody (also called possession)
- Visitation (also called access)
- Joint managing conservatorship
- Enforcement and modification of decrees
- Termination of parental rights due to sexual/physical abuse, pornography, drugs, criminal charges, failure to pay support and lack of visitation
Once our attorneys inform you of the rights of both parties, they will aggressively pursue your desired goal.
Working Together Through Mediation Or Collaborative Law
The court may not grant joint custody agreements when both parties are unable to get along and agree on issues related to the child. This paradox appears unfair because, if the parents were able to get along, then they probably would not need the intercession of the courts and may not even be getting divorced at all. Most parents who want to be part of their children’s lives can adequately interact with their former spouse once the high emotions of the divorce have diminished.
Our child custody lawyers advocate several methods of dispute resolution, including mediation and collaborative law, specifically designed to let both parents have a say in their children’s future rather than living with a decision dictated by the courts.
