Flexible child custody and visitation arrangements help bonds

Last week, we discussed the various types of child custody arrangements that are possible. After reading that post, some of our Texas readers might be wondering if any of those stringent child custody arrangements will work for them. Many parents have factors, such as a varying work schedule, that make sticking to a strict schedule almost impossible. We understand that and want to help parents who need flexible visitation and child custody schedules to still be able to parent their children.

When you think it about, there really isn't room for any parent to give up a job just because they need to find one with a reliable schedule. With the state of the economy, leaving a job just because it has an irregular schedule might mean that you aren't able to pay child support or other living expenses. That would work against you trying to support your child. Instead, a flexible custody or visitation schedule might help you to spend time with your children while making the money necessary to support them.

For members of the military, swing shift workers, public safety workers, medical professionals and traveling employees, being able to come up with a schedule that lets you spend time with your children and still do your job so you can make money is a top priority. By studying your work schedule and figuring out what arrangements are best for you and your children, you might be able to work out a deal through a collaborative law process that is in your children's best interest.
