How Does The State Determine Possession And Access?
If parents do not reach a mutual agreement through on a parenting schedule through negotiations or mediation, a family law court will issue a final decision. Judges consider several factors when weighing the best interests of the child, including:
- Each parent’s ability to care for the child
- The child’s relationship with each parent
- The child’s involvement in school, church or other community activities
- The location of each parent’s residence
- The presence of domestic abuse, substance abuse or mental illness
Texas, Arkansas and Georgia all have different laws and approaches when it comes to child custody. We understand the many nuances in these states and how they could affect your outcome. In addition, we can provide a realistic assessment of what you can expect to pay or receive in child support depending on your income and parenting schedule.
