Putting kids first: How to manage out-of-state parenting

Divorce can be hard enough to begin with, though many families in Texas know all too well how especially tough it can be when children are involved. Most parents want whatever is best for their children and will strive to ensure that their kids' needs are put ahead of their own. However, that can be difficult to do even in the best of circumstances. If one spouse has to move away for any reason, it can make shared or joint custody difficult to manage. Though it may be necessary, out-of-state parenting can have adverse effects on children, as a recent interview with a teenage boy whose parents are divorced demonstrates.

Dealing with child custody issues during the holiday season

The holidays are a time that Texas families want to be together, and parents want to create memories and spend time with their kids. This can be complicated, however, for families after divorce, and some parents may find themselves dealing with depression, anger and other emotions when their children are with the other parent. The Christmas season can make child custody issues quite complicated and difficult. 

Managing back-to-school with complex living arrangements

Back-to-school is in full swing, and many Texas parents are struggling to adapt to new routines. Every new school year presents scheduling challenges, but for parents who have complex living arrangements, it can be truly taxing. For parents who've gone through a recent breakup or divorce, finding a new way to approach back to school is important. 

Mother continues fight in complicated child custody case

No parent relishes the thought of a custody battle, but some cases are exceptionally difficult to weather, in Texas and across the nation. Parents are usually so emotionally connected to their children that the thought of losing access to them can cloud otherwise good judgment. Unfortunately, that can lead to negative outcomes in child custody court, a lesson that one mother has learned the hard way. 

Lisa Marie Presley may be able to seal child custody records

Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of Elvis Presley, recently won a small battle in her ongoing custody fight. Presley asked the court to seal documents in her child custody case for the purpose of protecting her 9-year-old twin daughters. Presley is in the middle of a longstanding child custody dispute with her estranged husband, musical director Michael Lockwood. Many Texas residents are following the story. 

New law focuses on child custody and frozen embryos

The topic of what to do with frozen embryos after a relationship ends is becoming more and more common, in Texas and across the nation. As fertility treatments continue to expand, couples have more options than ever before when it comes to having a child. Those options, however, can lead to serious child custody disputes if the union ends before the embryos are used to have a child. One state recently passed a new law addressing the issue, and has sparked debate across the nation. 

Proper planning can avoid child custody fight over embryos

For some Texas spouses, fertility issues, health problems or personal preferences can make surrogacy a very appealing prospect. Once embryos are created and stored, however, there is a risk of a child custody case if the parties decide to go their separate ways. That is made clear in the ongoing high profile child custody battle between actress Sophia Vergara and her former partner Nick Loeb. 

Family could face child custody battle over wandering child

Every so often a disturbing case involving suspected child abuse or neglect makes the news. Very often, however, there is more to the story than what is initially reported. Even when Texas authorities remove a child from his or her home, the family is often able to regain child custody after a thorough investigation is completed. A recent example from another state has led to a child being held in protective custody after he was found wandering on the side of a busy road. 

Jury sides with father in Texas child custody situation

A 4-year-old girl has been at the center of a court battle between her parents in Texas. The girl's mother formally accused her father of child abuse. However, certain events recently unfolded that led a jury to vote that managing child custody should be granted to the child's father.  

Child custody dispute pits tribal courts against parents

From time to time, a custody battle arises that involves a Native American tribal court. Very often, these cases receive a great deal of media attention in Texas and elsewhere due to issues of jurisdiction and authority of tribal courts outside of established reservation land. An example is currently in the news, and centers on a couple who lost child custody of their infant daughter just days after her birth.
