Texas father seeks sole custody of child

Earlier this month, a Texas man headed to court in an attempt to gain sole child custody of his daughter. This action comes after the man's ex-wife disappeared with both of her daughters and attempted to flee to Mexico with them. One of the children is the ex-husband's biological daughter while the other is the ex-wife's child from another union.

The ex-wife violated the terms of the existing child custody arrangement when she tried to take the children to Mexico. She was arrested when she tried to obtain passports for herself and two children. Her ex-husband suspects she planned to drive through Mexico to get to Belize, a trip that he said can be especially dangerous for a woman to make alone with children.

According to reports, the two married in 2006 at an Illinois state park. Soon after the wedding celebration, they began having trouble with the marriage, and the couple started to experience volatile outbursts before the youngest child was born. As a result of her attempts to disappear with the children, the ex-wife is being charged with child endangerment and interfering with child custody.

Unfortunately, child custody arrangements can be one of the most contentious and emotional issues during a divorce. It is important to work with an experienced family law attorney during a divorce that involves children. These situations can cause some parents to act irrationally and make decisions that are harmful to children. A strong legal team can help ensure the safety and rights of the parents and children are upheld.
