Fort Worth parents who are going through a divorce may be interested in some information on child custody issues when there was domestic abuse involved. While a court has the final say, a recent history of abuse often prevents contact between the abusive parent and their child.
Texas law believes that if, as a parent, you are facing divorce, maintaining your children's best interest is vital. This means that your situation may have built-in terms regarding child custody so that both parents are allotted sufficient opportunity to parent. The goal of state law and our office is that children benefit from the best relationship possible with both parents.
