Working with your spouse to ensure a healthy relationship


It should go without saying that the relationship between a divorced couple will never be the same as when the couple was married. In a vast majority of cases, if the ex-couple were able to work out their differences, they would not be divorced. For marriages without children, it is far easier, once a divorce is official, for both sides to move on with their lives. But if children are involved from the marriage, a relationship must still exist.

Child Custody Tips for Summer Vacation

A summer vacation should be all about fun, bonding time, and rest and relaxation instead of fighting over child custody with your ex and digging into old wounds that still need time to fully heal. Maybe you want to take them abroad to Europe, but he or she probably only gets to see them during the summer season. Do not attempt to sort out the details of your arrangement after you have already made plans. Start planning ahead and make sure you address all of your concerns before buying any tickets and making vacation plans. To help you navigate through this delicate situation, here are some tips to bear in mind:

How do you enforce a child custody order?


When a Texas resident has gone through the hassle of finalizing their divorce, including settling issues such as child custody, child support, and visitation, there can be nothing as frustrating as a former spouse refusing to honor the terms of the agreement. This can leave the other parent feeling frustrated and anxious, unsure of what will happen next, and lend instability to the children's lives. However, it may be possible to enforce a child custody order through contempt of court proceedings.

Physical, legal and joint custody -- what's the difference?


Divorce brings with it many potential complications. No two divorce cases in Texas are exactly the same, and each divorcing spouse likely has unique goals that they wish to be carried out. Some divorces are fairly straightforward, with few issues that need to be resolved and everything mostly agreed upon between the spouses. Some are not so simple, and may involve heated conflicts and an extended legal battle in court.

Common Issues to Address in Child Custody Cases

One of the biggest issues in a divorce is the matter of child custody. While things can get heated during this process, it is important to remember that, while you and your ex-spouse may disagree on many things, you both want what is best for your child. Here are some of the most common issues you may face when in the midst of a child custody dispute.shutterstock_235328089.jpg

Modifying a child custody and visitation order


When parents divorce, they typically negotiate a parenting plan and Texas courts issue a child custody order. In many cases, this is not an easy process, and parents are reluctant to renegotiate it. However, life throws changes at you, whether you want them or not. When changes make an old child custody order unworkable, parents can request a modification.

Here's a new way to feel better about being a single parent

To many divorced parents, it can seem as if society is conspiring to ignore you, if not disapprove of you. Single moms are often depicted as poverty-stricken or welfare-dependent. Single dads get painted as desperate or incompetent. You know better; most divorced parents are ordinary, decent people who are doing their best in the face of long odds.

Tips for Handling Child Custody and Co-Parenting during the Holidays

Now that December is here, the holiday season is in full swing. While this can be a time of joy and celebrations, for parents who share custody of children, it can also be tremendously difficult. The holidays can be a central point of contention when co-parenting, especially when celebrations conflict with regular child custody schedules. When verbal agreements simply will not work, establishing an official, legally binding holiday custody schedule can help to resolve issues before they arise. While a family court can provide guidelines, how you choose to divide the days can differ for each holiday.
