Approaching a lawyer can help in child custody agreements

Couples going through a divorce in Texas have to make many important and difficult decisions, one of which is determining who will have custody of children and where children will live. Even though there is a presumption of parents working out a plan to co-parent their children and make important decisions regarding their children's future together, this is not the way every situation plays out, as practical decisions may take a back seat to emotions during a particularly acrimonious divorce.

When this happens and parents are unable to come up with a plan together, they may end up having to approach the court for a parenting arrangement. The court will make a custody and visitation schedule based on the best interests of the child, as explained in a post on this blog recently. Even though a typical agreement provides for visitation every other weekend and holiday, parents can try to create a schedule that better suits their individual circumstances.

In order to create a schedule that works for both parents while not engaging directly with a divorcing spouse, Texas residents can approach our experienced lawyers for assistance. Not only do we excel at helping families work out a parenting plan that suits their needs and caters to their children's best interests, but we have knowledgeable lawyers who can help parents get through this difficult time without compromising their rights.
