How Texas law treats noncustodial parents

Under Texas law, it is important that a noncustodial parent responds to any papers related to a child custody hearing. Failing to show up in court for a scheduled hearing could result in a judge making decisions for that parent related to paternity and child support. Those who are unable to go to a hearing should contact the court or the child support office to learn how to send a response.

Protecting children from the emotional fallout of divorce

Reaching a compromise that is acceptable to both spouses can be extremely difficult in Texas divorce cases due to the state's community property laws and incendiary nature of many of the matters discussed. However, even spouses that find it difficult to bear the sight of one another are often able to put their anger and resentment aside when the welfare of young children is involved.

Understanding child custody exchanges

When child custody details are being decided as part of divorce negotiations, one of the issues that is sometimes addressed is child custody exchanges or swaps. Texas parents should understand that these environments have the potential to become highly volatile.
