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.
Depending on the factors involved in the marriage and the needs of everyone post-divorce, a child custody decision could take various forms. While shared custody is the order most promoted in society today, this is not always the most suitable arrangement. At W. Tyler Moore, P.C., our experienced legal team understands the complexities that child custody issues can bring to the table. Thus, we are devoted to helping parents in the Houston area navigate these issues.
