child custody & visitation Archives

child custody- use it or lose it

Child custody - use it or lose it.  Texas has a Standard Possession Order for children three years of age or older. That Standard Possession Order (or SPO) grants frequent and regular possession of minor children to the parent who is not the primary custodian.

What provisions should a parenting plan in Texas contain?

Parents in Texas who are going through a divorce may have a certain degree of animosity towards one another. However, some of them are willing to put their negative feelings behind them and work together with their ex to negotiate a parenting plan out of court. This may be in the best interests of the child, as the child's parents know the child's needs best. Also, establishing a parenting plan out of court establishes the groundwork for future communication and cooperation -- two things that parents will face as they parent separately after the divorce.

Unreimbursed med expenses as child support in child support cases

Unreimbursed medical expenses in child custody cases are considered child support and are generally owed under a child support order.  If a child's parent owes you for unreimbursed medical expenses incurred in behalf of the child, don't wait too long to pursue the collection either by enforcement by contempt or reduce the unreimbursed med expense to judgment and get a court order for payment.

Child custody requires a court order

Child custody requires a court order.   What happens when a parent with custody drops the child off and says he/she now no longer wants custody? Just because the parent with custody of the child drops the child off and says he/she no longer wants custody, that won't prevent the parent from later demanding the return of the child.  Custody orders remain in force until they are modified by the court with jurisdiction over the child.  Visit www.wtylermoore.com for more information or call 713-929-2242 and ask for W Tyler Moore.

Do grandparents in Texas have visitation rights?

Grandparents in Texas can play an important role in a child's life. They can pass on their years of wisdom, and they provide love and support as a child grows. So, if something happens that severs that relationship, it can be very distressing for both the grandparents and the grandchild.

Guiding you through your child custody options

Divorce is by no means easy for the spouses that go through them. Even when a couple mutually agrees to end their marriage because it is in their best interests, the wishes and interests of the spouses are not always the focal point of dissolution. For divorcing parents in Texas, the process is based on the best interest of the children involved. This is not just regarding child custody and support but can also pour over into divorce issues such as property division and alimony. Nonetheless, the most imperative decision to address during divorce regarding children is custody.

Paternity is important in establishing child support

Child support payments are a sticking point for many dads. While you and the child's mother were never married and aren't together anymore, you still love your kid. Although many parents in Texas arrange a joint managing conservatorship, mom might still have more control over your child's life than you.

What kinds of child custody arrangements are there in Texas?

Texas parents getting a divorce may have a lot of questions. They may be concerned about their child's well-being during the divorce process and afterwards, especially since the child will be going from one two-parent household to two one-parent households. It is a big change that will take some time to adjust to. Therefore, parents may want to make sure that a fair and appropriate child custody and visitation schedule is established.
