Texas mother stabs father of children

Child custody can be one of the most contentious disputes in a divorce case, since both parents often believe they have the best interests of their children at heart. Emotions may be running high for parents getting divorced, especially if they are unable to reach a compromise on custody or visitation arrangements. It is less common for divorcing parents in Texas to become violent in a custody dispute, although it can happen.

How do you establish paternity in Texas?

If you are a Texas man whose child was born when you were not married to his or her mother, you and your child do not have the same legal rights as children born to married parents. The Office of the Texas Attorney General explains that a child born in Texas to unmarried parents does not legally have a father. While you may be the biological father, you have no legal right to your child unless and until you establish paternity.

What does your child need for an enriched life?

Texan parents like you will have to ask yourselves this exact question when heading into a divorce. Child support payments are a way for both parents to continue having a hand in raising their child even after splitting up, and in many cases, these payments are necessary to the child's overall quality of life.
