Texas Child Custody Law Office

Texas uses a non-exhaustive list of factors to consider which parent is in the best position to provide for the child.

Among these factors include:

  1. The child’s desires.
  2. The motion and physical needs of the child both now and in the future.
  3. The emotional and physical danger to the child to the child both now and in the future
  4. Parental abilities of the parent seeking custody
  5. Programs available to assist the parentings in promoting the child’s best interest;
  6. Plans for the child;
  7. The stability of the home;
  8. The act or omissions of the parent
  9. Any excuse for acts or omissions of the parent.

Ultimately, the Court uses many factors to determine what is in the best interest of the child. Understanding that the process is child-centered earlier on may assist in the success of a child custody case. Talk to an attorney about how the facts of your case align with factors considered by the Court. (210)249-2985

Your Child Custody Lawsuit

When a child custody case is filed, the other party receives notice of the lawsuit. Generally, the next step is a hearing called a Temporary Order, where the Court temporarily puts a plan to safeguard what’s in the child’s best interest. Temporary Orders allow parties to quickly gain access to Court without having to wait for a final trial. Decisions made at a brief order hearing include:

  1. Possession and Access Schedule
  2. Electronic Communication
  3. Temporary Restraining Orders
  4. Injunctions
  5. Prohibits of certain person from being around the children
  6. Enrollment and participation in Extra-Curricular Activities
  7. Therapeutic Services
  8. Other services available to address the physical and emotional needs of the child
