What are the rights of joint managing conservators in Texas?


When a child's parents divorce, decisions will need to be made regarding who will care for the child and make decisions on the child's upbringing. Under Texas law, there is the presumption that each of the child's parents should share joint managing conservatorship. This gives each parent certain rights and duties when it comes to raising the child.

Why might a Texas couple want to mediate child custody issues?


A litigated divorce can be a costly process. Not only is it costly financially, but it also costs time and emotional stress. This may especially be true if the divorcing couple has children, meaning child custody decisions must be made. It is important for parents in Houston to realize that they will still share a common link -- their child. This means that they will have to work together to raise their child, even though they are no longer romantically involved. It also means that, for the sake of all involved, parents may want to try coming to an agreement on child custody issues on their own, rather than drawing things out in litigation.

Do not try to hide assets in divorce


Touted as one of the largest types of cryptocurrency worldwide, Bitcoin is a digital currency that is not linked to a bank or credit union and is not backed by any sort of governing authority. This means that Bitcoin accounts can be kept secret, and transactions done over the Internet using Bitcoin can be kept anonymous. This makes identifying these assets difficult because there is no paper trail.

How Are Oil Rights Handled In A Divorce?

Living in the community property state of Texas, you may think that it is easy for assets to be split during a divorce, but that is not always the case. When the married couple has accumulated numerous investments, there are many considerations to be taken that can drastically change the quality of a divorce settlement for better or for worse.

Both parents are pivotal in raising a child post-divorce


When parents in Texas divorced, it used to be the case that whichever parent was the "primary caretaker" (often the mother) would automatically get custody of the child, and the child's other parent (often the father) would have visitation rights. However, these days many courts and experts recognize that both parents play an important role in a child's life, and to this end, co-parenting and shared custody is becoming more common. In fact, some states in our nation, Texas included, are considering legislation that would either promote shared parenting or even make it the defaultchild custody arrangement.
