We can help with your child custody issues

As mentioned in the previous post on our Dallas family law blog, dealing with child custody issues is a difficult matter regardless of the time of year. Even though parenting is often seen as a fundamental human right, various circumstances lead to couples ending their relationship with each other and jeopardizing their right to parent. However, with the right counsel, it is possible to protect this right and ensure that children benefit from the involvement of both their parents in their lives.

Dealing with child custody during the holidays

Divorcing couples have a lot of decisions to make and these decisions are often tougher if there are children involved. From deciding who makes the day-to-day decisions to determining whom the child will spend weekends and holidays with, child custody arrangements can be difficult to create and come to terms with. With the holiday season coming up, one or the other parent will have custody of the children, possibly leaving the other one feeling lonely and resentful, especially if this is the first holiday season post divorce.
