Child Custody Options

When a court passes a verdict on a child custody battle, the primary aim is to ensure the decision is in the “best interest” of the child. Based on dynamics such as parents’ behavioral history, financial stability, medical background and other such factors, the court may offer sole or joint custody.

Joint Custody in Texas

When Common law marriage couples wish to separate, they are required to go through the same legal proceedings as traditionally married couples. Either of the partners will have to prove the validity of the marriage, and to prevent the other partner exercise community separation rights, one of the spouses may try to prove the marriage did not existed. In such cases, the partner looking to exercise their rights will have to present evidence, such as a written agreement or witnesses who can verify the person’s statement that both the partners conducted themselves as married couple in public.

Note : The court may also designate one parent as a sole decision maker of the child if one parent violates the orders and make decisions which have direct impact on the life of the child without including the other parent

The other parent has no right to decide but can be allowed to visit the child under strict supervision.
