What are my options if I need to move with my children?

Many residents of Killeen and Fort Hood, even those not affiliated with the military, find themselves needing to make a move to another state. Of course, with Texas being so large, even certain moves in state can have the same effect as moving to another state.

What is joint custody?

Many residents of Killeen and Fort Hood may have heard the term joint custody and may have even heard family law experts and those who work with children sing its praises as a great way of helping children deal with the fact that their parents do not live together. However, many Texans might not know exactly what this term entails.

How does one create a valid prenuptial agreement in Texas?

There are many reasons why a couple in the greater metro area of Killeen and Fort Hood, Texas, might want to enter in to a prenuptial agreement before they tie the knot, particularly when one member or both members of the couple are on their second or a subsequent relationship.

Be represented by someone who understands your family law needs


As mentioned in previous posts on this blog, there are many parenting options available for parents in Texas going forward after a divorce. For those who parted amicably, co-parenting is one option. Others may find their relationship has not yet reached that point, and they may find parallel parenting works for them. Even others may be in situations where shared custody is not an option, and they have petitioned for and won sole custody of their children. Regardless of how they are parenting, at the end of the day their aim is to do what is in their child's best interests.

Family law: what if co-parenting isn't right for my family?


Though a couple may have similar ideals when they get married to one another in Texas, over time the couple may drift apart for various reasons and decide that they can no longer continue their relationship. There are a number of family law issues that arise when a couple is going through a divorce, but one of the most difficult aspects is of deciding custody and visitation with regards to children.

Is nesting a good child custody arrangement for your divorce?

One custody option that is becoming more popular in Texas is nesting. Nesting allows your kids to continue living in the marital home while you and your former partner take turns living there. Instead of shuffling your children back and forth to two different homes, they can remain in one. You may be wondering if this type of arrangement can work for your situation. It is beneficial for some families who want to minimize their kids' exposure to the number of changes that occur during their divorces. However, it is not ideal for all child custody arrangements

Focusing on the 'best interests of the child' in the courts


All parents love their children. And all parents only want what is best for their children. It is not uncommon though, that during the course of a divorce, opinions may vary on what is considered the best interests of the children. It is not uncommon for each parent to truly believe that they deserve child custody of their child or children, and that by caring for their children, they are protecting the best interests of the child or children.
