The various types of possession orders in Texas -- Part II

Divorces involving minor children are often among the most complicated marital dissolutions. The parents are often eager for the divorce to be finalized, but their children may not be. They may be afraid of the future, of not having both parents when they need them and of changes that seem to threaten their lives. Partly because of this, courts all across the country, including those in Texas, assume the mantle of responsibility in making sure children's best interests are met wherever possible.

What are the various types of possession orders in Texas?

As many Texas residents understand, when children are involved, divorce becomes even more difficult than it would be otherwise. What many spouses may forget is that although they might not have the same feeling anymore for each other, their children may still have a desire for the parents to live together. When thinking of the best interest of the child, the court typically awards child custody to one parent and generally orders the other to pay child support. The non-custodial parent will usually have visitation rights.

Experienced Texas attorneys can provide tailor-made solutions

Dallas, Texas, residents would agree that children are very often caught in the crossfire of divorce. Children often prove to be the greatest losers in the divorce battle. They suffer from psychological wounds and an astute attorney realizes that this should not be the price to pay for divorce. Every seasoned attorney knows that in any divorce involving children, the best interests of the child should be protected.

"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."
