Becoming a parent is one of the greatest blessings in the world. After a divorce, you’ll have to share parental duties and time with your ex. You can’t get this time back. If you don’t feel that your current arrangement is in the best interest of the children, you need a parental rights attorney in Southlake.
Child Custody Arrangements
Texas courts generally assume that children benefit from having both of their parents in their lives. However, extenuating circumstances can lead one parent to receive primary physical and/or legal custody over the children.
Physical custody refers to where the children stay. Legal custody refers to who has a say over parental decisions, such as education and medical care.
Getting More Time With Your Child
In order to get additional time with your children, you should make a point to take advantage of your current arrangement to its full extent, whether you have partial physical custody or visitation. If you fail to see your children as allowed by the court, the courts will take the lack of initiative into consideration.
You’ll need to establish a stable and suitable home for the children, too. Some people struggle to get back on their feet after a divorce. Once you are reestablished, you can ask the court to reexamine the custody agreement based on your new living conditions.
