Texas looks into all aspects of child custody cases

Child custody is one of the most stressful aspects of raising a child if you and the child's other parent are no longer in a relationship. As we discussed last week, determining the primary caregiver of the child is one of the factors that affects child custody; however, that isn't the only factor that comes into the picture. We can help you learn about the factors that come into the picture when you are in the midst of a child custody battle.

While many child custody cases can be decided out of court through mediation or arbitration, having the court decide the arrangement is sometimes necessary. When the court has to decide child custody issues, the best interests of the child are the primary concern. This means that a variety of custody plans is possible.

The situation gets a little more complicated if you and your ex weren't married. In the case of unwed parents, the father is unlikely to be able to get custody of the child from the mother unless the mother is an unfit parent. It isn't necessarily impossible, but it could prove to be a challenge.

When you are dealing with child custody issues, you should be prepared just in case you have to make your case in court. We can help you to learn what the court will look for. We can help you to determine the options you have for presenting your position to the court. We know how important it is for you to fight for what you feel is best for your child.
