Filing an appeal after a child custody decision

Some Texas parents may feel that the court in their child custody case ruled in an unfair manner. They may worry that the other parent poses a risk to the child or feel unjustly excluded from their child's life. Parents have the right to appeal child custody orders, although the timing and circumstances for an appeal may vary, and it may be better in some cases to file for a modification instead. In general, custody cases can be appealed once a final order has been issued and is in place.

Traffic accidents result in thousands of deaths per year. In 2017, fatal accidents caused by distracted drivers caused 3,166 deaths, which was more than 8% of all traffic fatalities.

Although self-driving cars may put an end to distracted driving in the future, they may actually be causing drivers in Texas and around the country to take their focus off of the road today.
