How to deal with custody and visitation after a move

Texas divorced couples who have young children and who expect conflicts with each other to end along with the marriage may still face disputes over co-parenting.

Difficult circumstances can wreak havoc in the lives of Texas families, and grandparents may find that they have little or no voice in decisions involving their grandchildren.

Tips for divorced parents with co-parenting conflicts

Ideally, divorced parents in Texas who have a conflict about issues such as a child's activities would be able to talk to one another and resolve the conflict in that manner. However, this is not always the case. As a result, a parent might be tempted to take a relatively minor issue to court. This is not the best solution because judges prefer to not get involved in these types of parenting disputes.

Why divorced parents should start planning for the holidays now

Holidays can be a great time of stress, even when everyone gets along. There are a lot of pressures, expectations and obligations that can make it seem like anything but the "most wonderful time of the year." Add a recent divorce into the mix and the holiday season can be downright miserable.
