A good parenting plan puts your child first

As a parent, it's your job to make sure your child always comes first. When it comes to a divorce, that may mean working together with your spouse to create a parenting plan. Despite how you feel about one another, it's important to create a parenting plan that benefits your child, not your own interests. For example, even if you think your spouse is awful for the way he or she treated you, you should separate those feelings and do what you believe is best for your child, whether that's working out a 50-50 custody arrangement or fighting for sole custody.

Mother accused of medical child abuse in Texas

A mother who insisted her child was suffering from a variety of medical conditions now faces allegations of mistreating her son. According to the story, an 8-year-old child is now in the custody of his father following findings that his mother had lied about the child having several illnesses.

Seeking custody of your grandchildren because of drug abuse

Heroin, opioid and opiate abuse is becoming a national epidemic. Meth and other substances, including alcohol, can also cause all kinds of medical and social issues for those with dependence on them. Families get torn apart when a parent or an older child ends up with an addiction. As a parent, the last thing you ever want to see is your child struggling with a potentially deadly problem. As a grandparent, however, you also need to put the needs of the youngest and most vulnerable people in your family first.

Custody cases can be decided by a judge: Be proactive

When you go through a divorce or separation, it's vital to put your child's needs first. The best interests of your child are always going to be the court's main priority, as they should be yours. If you and your spouse can't resolve your child custody decisions outside court, then the court will use its power to choose for you in the interests of your child.

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.
