Child Custody Archives

Your children's best interests are the primary concern

Child custody cases can sometimes bring out the worst in people. Most parents feel very strongly about how they want their children to be raised. When you have to work with someone who doesn't live with you and who doesn't necessarily see things your way, you might question what you can do to ensure that your children's best interests are kept at the heart of the matter.

Make sure you check your estate plan and taxes after divorce

There are a lot of changes that you need to make when you file for a divorce. Obviously, this is a good chance to ensure that you have your life set up for success. There are two specific areas that you should think about before you do anything else. These are your estate plan and your taxes.

Your child's life depends on the terms of the custody order

As you and your ex work through the child custody issues before you, it is imperative that you keep your child's needs and desires at the heart of the matter. Your child's bests interests are what the court uses to determine how child custody orders should pan out. We know that you might not fully understand what the court will consider, so we are here to help you learn about how Texas law applies to these cases.

Issues parents should consider during divorce

Getting divorced when you don't have kids often means focusing on only what is best for you. This may sound selfish, but you need to make sure your rights are respected, and it's just you and your spouse. When you're a parent, though, a whole host of other issues come into play. These include:

Car registration and back child support in Texas

Most parents understand the importance of child support and pay it on schedule. Some parents think that they can fly under the radar and get away without paying. This used to be something that was possible to an extent in Texas; however, that isn't the case any longer.

Learn your options for handling any child custody matter

Last week, we discussed how a court in another state now considers pets as children in divorce cases. For the people who are going to be handling this issue, knowing how children are handled in divorce cases can help them to know how the issues surrounding the pet will be handled.

Establishing paternity can benefit you, your child and the mother

When you are fighting to see your child, you might find that you have to establish paternity. This can be done in several ways, but there are significant effects of the establishment no matter how it occurs. If you are fighting for your rights as a father, you should know that your desire to be legally acknowledged comes with some important benefits to you and your child.

Finding solutions to child custody issues

We recently discussed how parents should make sure they put their child first when it comes to holiday child custody arrangements. That isn't the only time that this should occur. Parents should always be ready to put their disagreements with their ex aside when decisions need to be made about the children.
