Are there any apps that can help me coparent?

A divorce is an adversarial process by its very definition, and it can be even more difficult to communicate civilly with your ex as it was during your marriage. One thing that has helped couples in the past is to ensure that all communication is in writing. This makes the documentation process easier and completely eliminates any miscommunications or he-said-she-said issues.

Questions about grandparents' rights? We can help.

Grandparents have always been an integral part of most people's childhood, but with more families having two parents working, grandparents are often tasked with more childcare responsibilities. Grandparents who enjoy a close relationship with their grandchildren may be concerned when they first find out that a divorce is coming, wondering how it will impact their relationship and how often they will get to see the grandchildren.

Family care plans can help make deployment less stressful

For most people, child custody cases are fairly simple. Outlining who is going to have the children when might pose a bit of a problem, but for the most part there aren't huge obstacles to overcome. Some parents have a more difficult time figuring out child custody matters because of the career they choose. Parents who are in the military fall into that category.

I'm a grandparent. How can I get visitation rights?

They say it takes a village to raise a child, but in today's world, that "village" is often comprised of grandparents and other extended family members. Marriage joins two families as one, but divorce often has people taking sides, and that can mean that one — or sometimes even both — sets of grandparents end up alienated from their grandchildren. While Texas does have some legal avenues for grandparents to seek visitation rights, there is often a misconception about what grandparents can do.
