Know who will care for your children while you’re deployed

If you’re in the military, you never know when you’re going to get deployed and have to leave your home in Texas. If you have custody of your children but are no longer with their other parent, you’re going to want to know who will take care of them in your absence. Even if you’re not currently being deployed, it’s important to know what will happen ahead of time because you can’t just assume that you’ll be able to choose your current partner or a family member to care for your children while you’re away. These are some things that you should know now so that you can be more prepared later.

Will my ex take care of my kids while I’m away?

First of all, even if you have primary custody of your children, more than likely, your children’s biological parent will probably take care of them while you’re away unless there’s some reason that the courts have to believe that your ex shouldn’t take care of them. If you have rights to your children, one of the first things that you should do is talk to your children’s other parent to determine what will happen if you’re deployed. You can set up a care plan if you want someone other than your ex to take care of them while you’re gone, but your ex can still overturn a care plan.

What about joint custody?

If you have joint custody of your children with your ex, it’s equally important that you keep them up to date on anything that could affect your children. It’s very common for parents to have joint custody, and it’s important that you have conversations with their other parent about the possibility of you being deployed.

When you’re in the military and might get deployed, you need to communicate with your ex about how you’ll take care of your children ahead of time.
