Be prepared for your custody case in Texas

When you are worried about losing custody of your child, nothing else matters to you. That fear can be overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. You should know that most parents are treated fairly by the courts. Men or women are not preferred over the other.

The myths that surround child custody can make the entire idea of custody and visitation daunting. You might be fearful or worried about how your spouse will act in court. Fortunately, your attorney will be there to help.

Parents can arrange custody outside court

You may not have known this, but parents can set up their preferred custody schedules outside court. You and your spouse, if you agree, can come up with a schedule and ask a judge to approve it. If you need time to negotiate, your attorneys can help, or you may go to mediation or through arbitration. Many times, it's possible to avoid having a custody dispute in court, helping relieve parents' fears.

Can you lose custody of your child during divorce?

It may be possible, but it's unlikely in most cases. On the whole, judges want to see parents remain in children's lives. Why? Their parents are important to their overall health and well-being. Children who have two responsible parents should not be forced to go without seeing one under most circumstances.

There are many factors that can influence custody, but it's important that you get to know the laws and protect your interests. Our website has more on custody and the rights that you have as a parent.
