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.

One thing that you can do for your child is to try to work out the terms of the custody agreement with your ex. This might seem like a hassle but you should consider the reasons why this is a good idea. First, you and your ex know your child. You know your child's schedule and what he or she needs. The court can only base a decision on the information presented to it.

Next, you and your ex working together gives you some measure of control over how everything is going to be handled. You and your ex can work out a schedule that works for your child's activities and school. You can also consider work schedules and other factors that play a part in how your custody case should be handled.

We understand that this might seem like a very difficult process. We are here to help you understand what options you have for each step of the negotiations. When you go through child custody mediation, you must ensure that you focus on your child and not base your decisions on wanting to make life hard for your ex. We are here to help you do just that.
