CHILD CUSTODY, CHILDREN & DIVORCE
The quality and amount of time you spend with your children is very important. This is often a highly contested and stressful subject to work out with the other parent when going through a divorce. If visitation and access to the children have been denied or child support is unpaid, an enforcement action can be filed to enforce a court order. Three big issues concerning the children in a divorce are:
Conservatorship—issues concern the rights and duties of the parents in relation to the child. Health, education, religious upbringing, discipline, and children’s property are some of the issues addressed in conservatorship. Two of the most important conservatorship issues to parents are the right to set the primary residence of the children and the geographic restrictions on the primary residence of the children.
Possession & Access—issues concern when and how each parent gets access to their children. Possession and access schedules typically include holidays, weekday visits while school is in session, electronic communications including telephonic access, and child exchange locations. The Standard Possession Schedule can be found in the Texas Family Code.
Child Support—issues concern payments by the parents for the benefit of the children. The Texas Family Code sets out the guideline child support amounts which are fairly standard for the majority of cases. A Court may deviate from the guidelines but must make findings for the reasons why it deviates from setting child support at a guideline amount.
