Grandparents’ right to petition for custody in Texas, P.1

In an ideal world, all children would have loving parents that are fit to care for them and provide a secure environment for them to grow and develop, with loving grandparents to support the process. We don’t live in an ideal world, though, and sometimes parents are unable to provide for their children. In such cases, grandparents sometimes have to step into the role of parent and fight for the best interests of the child.

Spanking as a method of child discipline and its potential impact on custody determinations, P.2

In our previous post, we began looking at the issue of parental discipline in child custody proceedings, particularly whether corporal punishment, specifically spanking, can have a negative effect on a child custody determination.

We’ve been looking at the topic of prenuptial agreements in recent posts, particularly their usefulness for addressing a wide variety of matters a couple might want to address in their marriage and in the event of divorce. As we noted, the flexibility of prenuptial agreements is a positive thing, but it makes legal advocacy that much more important.
