More states ruling in favor of shared parenting, child custody

If some family law advocates have their way, divorcing parents in Texas and around the country may serve as legally equal partners in the raising of their children. The idea of shared child custody, not just on paper but also in terms of responsibilities and parenting time, seems to be gaining ground. Some feel this is a reflection of the changes in gender roles over the past few decades, creating a situation in which many noncustodial parents chafe at the limited roles allowed them by the courts.

LGBT Parents Find Understanding in Courts

For many decades gay or lesbian parents found it difficult to retain the custody of their children if they divulged the information to their straight partners. The situation often leads to a divorce and not amicable parting of ways for both sides. In recent years LGBT parents have been given more consideration by the courts where the final decisions about custody is not solely based on sexual orientations.
