Custody issues during the COVID-19 outbreak clarified by court

COVIDCustody-BlogImage.jpgMany Texas officials first became aware of the seriousness of the outbreak right around the time that kids were due to go on spring break from school. Now, it's uncertain when schools will return to normal. That's left some parents unsure how to interpret their visitation schedules.

Consider the issue of insurance in a divorce

Texas divorces are not as simple as settling details of custody and property division. The issues in these divorces go beyond that as there are things such as life insurance to consider. This can actually present complicated questions that can slow finalizing a divorce. Sometimes, the details that seem minor are actually the tough ones.

Pros and cons to settling or litigation in a divorce

The choice of agreeing to a settlement or going to litigation can be difficult for people who are getting a divorce in Houston. Negotiations may have broken down, and it could appear as though there is no room for further compromise. However, going to court may not be worth the costs in time, money or emotional fallout.

Changing or appealing a child custody order

Parents in Texas may find themselves in sharp disagreement with the decision of a family court, especially after a child custody hearing. This problem may be more common in contentious cases where parents are unable to reach an agreement or when abuse allegations are involved. After an unfavorable decision, a parent may wonder if they have the ability to appeal a child custody decision. As with other types of court orders, a child custody case can be appealed; however, only a final order can be brought up on appeal rather than a temporary or interim custody decision.
