The large size of the state of Texas is often a factor to take into consideration in connection with child custody agreements in the state. Distances are great between one community and another, so it is often not enough to establish that a parent with conservatorship or primary custody of a child will not take the child out of state. If a mother is in San Antonio and a father is in El Paso, for example, transferring the child between parents is not convenient. Responsibilities and costs for transportation should be taken into account in a child custody arrangement.
Child support is also an important factor when considering child custody. Child support is usually ordered so that the custodial parent does not have the financial burden of raising a child on their own. The court will look for what is in the best interest of the child in determining the amount of child support and the visitation schedule with the non-custodial parent.
In some situations, the best place for the children is with grandparents or aunts and uncles. We can help you determine if this choice is in the best interest of the children, and help you through the legal aspect of this tough decision.
If there is already an order in place for the children that needs to be modified, we can help with that too. Agreed modifications start at $799*
