HOW TO OBTAIN A CUSTODY RULING

When you approach a custody case, your opinions aren't the only things that weigh in on a ruling. First, you must demonstrate that you are eligible to file for custody in the state; then, if you meet state guidelines, you will be able to pursue a custody hearing. The court will review a number of factors to determine what would be an appropriate custody ruling for your situation.

Texas court will take any of the following into consideration:

  • Physical and emotional needs of the child
  • Physical and mental capability of each parent
  • Child's preference, if he or she is at least 12 years of age
  • Stability and environment of each parents' homes
  • Any information deemed relevant to the case

While the court will generally seek to establish a joint custody ruling if possible, this is not always in your child's best interest. For example, the court may award sole custody to one parent if another is incapable of properly caring for a child. In any case, the effects of a child custody case are long-lasting and will influence your ability to be involved in your child's life. Work with my firm for help!
