Grandparents' rights are sometimes crucial for children

Grandparents' rights are an area of family law that is often misunderstood. In some cases, a person might wonder exactly why grandparents should have any rights to their grandchildren at all if the parents don't want their children around them. Interestingly, grandparents' rights are meant more for the grandchildren than the grandparents.

Grandparents' rights are a hot topic for some people

Parents have the right to decide what is best for the children in their custody. That fact isn't disputed very often. However, when grandparents want to be a part of a child's life and aren't given the chance, those grandparents might opt to seek out legal methods of being able to be involved in the child's life.

Collaborative law might resolve divorce issues efficiently

In a recent blog post, we discussed how child support matters can sometimes be handled through collaborative law. When you are going through a divorce, you can often get everything handled in an efficient manner if we can work through the issues that are presented using the collaborative process instead of trying to battle in court.

Child support can be determined through negotiations

Child support is one component of a child custody case that can be especially difficult for parents to come to an agreement on. The paying parent might think that the amount is too high while the recipient parent might feel that the amount isn't high enough. Both sides of the case should understand that if they can't come to an agreement, the court will step in and order child support payments in an amount that complies with Texas guidelines.
