For Houston couples going through a divorce with minor children still at home, the issues surrounding child custody and support can be some of the most difficult upon which to agree. These child custody issues can even arise in situations where parents have not been married but have a child together and need to determine logistics for where the child will live, when he or she will see either parent and who is financially responsible for what.
For many Texas parents who must share custody of their children with another parent, the process can work as planned. Each party exchanges the child as per the agreement and in the best interests of the child. However, there are some situations in which this is not the case. One parent may prevent the other from access to the children or may take children when not allowed. Child custody issues such as these are governed under Texas law.
When it comes to international custody disputes, legal complications are not uncommon. As if it is not difficult enough to determine custody when both parents reside in Houston, there are a number of complications that can arise with child custody issues when one parent lives in another country.
