Holiday Visitation Schedules

Holiday visitation schedules are a problem for many people.  I get phone calls from people looking for a quick answer to their problems with child custody and visitation issues.  Without looking at the actual possession order it's impossible to answer the questions. Although Texas has a "Standard Possession Order", it is often tailored to specific situations.  The Standard Possession Order is like a "rack suit", i.e. a generalized outline which may be tailored to specific circumstances if need be.  Asking a lawyer to opine on your possession of your children when the lawyer doesn't have the actual possession order before him is futile.

Holiday Visitation

Holiday visitation questions in child custody are starting to arise.  When they do, there are two factors to keep in mind.  The first is "the best interest of the child" which was discussed in an earlier blog a few weeks ago.  The second is the part of the Standard Possession Order dealing with "mutual agreement or specified terms for possession".  

"Best Interest" in Child Custody

What is "best interest" in Child Custody? I receive many inquiries about what does "best interest" mean in context of child custody?   There is no definition in the Texas Family Code for "best interest" of a child.  It is a lot like "beauty" in that its definition lies in the eye of the beholder, the tryer of facts in the case, whether it's the judge or a jury.  

Be honest with your child custody lawyer

Be honest with your child custody lawyer.  Lawyers need to know all the relevant facts in their cases.  Of course, your lawyer needs to know the good points of your case. Most importantly, your lawyer needs to know the bad points, warts and all, as early as possible.  You can count on the "bad" facts being brought out in court whether or not you want them to.  Your lawyer needs to know what they are in order to deal with them as positively as possible.   Don't be embarrassed to tell your lawyer what he/she needs to know that may be used against you in your child custody case.
