While we try to prevent it, it is sometimes impossible to avoid having certain events impact your life and the lives of others. Divorce is one of those events. It is not only a shocking, sad, and emotional time; it is also one that stresses the relationship between a child and their parent. Because both parents likely want to protect this relationship, they will take steps to develop a child custody arrangement that helps ensure that their relationship with their child is not harmed or destroyed.
It is difficult to consider going from having one’s child full time to only half of the time or even less. The hard concept to grasp for some divorcing parents is that it is not always up to them. A child custody arrangement could be based on the court's view on the best interests of the child, possibly causing a parent to have less time than they are seeking with their child. At the Tracton Law Firm, PLLC, our experienced legal team has helped to divorce parents in the Sugar Land area navigate and resolve this family law issue.
In some cases, parents are able to negotiate an arrangement that works for both of them, while also focusing on the needs of the child. Shared parenting can be complex, making it imperative that both parents are on the same page. On the other hand, the stress of divorce can make it challenging to come together to develop a custody plan. Parents may not see eye-to-eye, causing them to litigate the matter.
