Resources for child custody and child support issues

Recently divorced Texas couples tend to experience some friction when it comes to their new child custody and child support agreements. Just as with any compromise, neither party is likely to be completely satisfied with the result of a divorce. Fortunately, the state publishes several useful resources to help parents adjust to their new relationships and responsibilities. 

The office of the Attorney General of Texas has a robust page of frequently asked questions regarding child custody and other related matters, such as child support enforcement, paternity issues and vehicle license problems. These questions, covering topics such as the function of the courts and the limitations of the law, might serve as a good starting point for parents having trouble with their new roles. The page also states one of the guiding principles of the Texas family law courts. To paraphrase: Two parents are better than one.

As with most legal defaults, special situations might challenge the norm of joint custody. The Texas Access Hotline’s website lists some of the concerns of a judge when deciding custody, most notably any history of domestic violence and the duration of the relationship with the child. The site also represents a wealth of information on topics ranging from legal proceedings involving young children to out-of-court mediation. 

Much of the Texas Access information is also available by phone. Parents interested in learning more about how to establish and maintain a positive atmosphere for their children under current custody and support laws might be interested in browsing the knowledge base online or calling the hotline directly.
