The child custody and visitation system in Texas-Part I

No matter where divorce happens, children are often the ones who suffer most when couples divorce. The uncertainty about the future can make children extremely anxious. For the parents, certain issues regarding their children can create anger and bitterness, especially when those issues are related to child custody and child support. Fortunately, Texas courts, like those in every state, use the standard of meeting children's best interests when it comes to granting child custody to one parent and requiring child support from the other.

Child custody attorneys know how to protect children's rights

In a divorce, children are caught in a crossfire of harsh words and often suffer psychological wounds due to contentious actions between their parents. A Texas resident would agree that any divorce has the most impact on the children involved. Children want to be with both the parents under the same roof but eventually realize that it cannot happen. Parents often forget the best interests of the child when they are caught in a bitter divorce battle. A seasoned attorney understands the emotions raging through the family and tries to minimize the damage to children in a child custody battle.

"Best interests of the child" for determining child custody

Child custody often becomes a major bone of contention for estranged parents. Texas child custody matters are brought to family court for assessment either during separation of parents by divorce or in cases where the child is born to unmarried parents. In Texas, and elsewhere, a court usually determines child custody issues by determining the "best interest of the child."

Missing child in Texas returned to grandparents

Shortly after the Copperas Cove Police Department announced a suspected interference with a child custody case involving a missing child, the 2-year-old was returned to her grandparents. The toddler was taken from them by the biological mother on Oct. 23, but the grandparents had legal custody of the child.
