Seeking Sound Solutions To Custody Issues
It’s impossible for parents to separate without raising the complex and often uncomfortable topic of child custody. Whatever the situation for the parents, there are both major and minor issues to work out. While this includes deciding where the kids will live, it branches in many directions: child support payments, decision-making rights and visitation schedules are just a few of many items to be resolved. There is the parenting plan, but also how to address future concerns like picking out a school, providing health insurance and planning for a college savings account.
Child Custody Can Be Flexible To Changing Needs
There are many custody arrangements where parents share and rotate responsibilities in different ways. Decision-making, caretaking, finances and schedules are all variable. To ensure the best interests of your child, Texas courts allow different arrangements for different families with different needs.
While there is a Standard Possession Order in Texas, this is a state recommendation that is flexible to meet your needs. Working with a skilled family law attorney, you can create a parenting plan that fits your career or living arrangements instead of the prescribed formula. Parenting plans can also be modified as life changes. Your kids’ needs change with age and your own life will similarly change over time.
