The end of a marriage brings about many changes. It turns a married spouse into a single individual, it causes one or both spouses to move to a new place, it results in property being divided and it causes children involved to split their time with their parents. It can be difficult on parents to go from spending all of their time with their child to only half the time or less. However, establishing a custody arrangement is necessary.

For divorcing parents in Texas, their children are often a focal point. They may be the reason they seek to get out of a hostile marriage, and their best interests are what fuels them to request a certain child custody arrangement. At the Law Offices of Michael D. Tracton, P.C., our skilled attorneys understand that there is no one size fits all custody arrangement. Thus, our law firm can help you find the custody plan that will work best for you and your children.

Co-parenting is not always easy, but it might be the best situation for the children. For divorced parents that can get past their differences, collaborative parenting could be very beneficial. However, in a hostile situation or matters that involve domestic violence, a more strategic custody arrangement may be necessary. This may look like one parent taking on the custodial role while the non-custodial parent gets visitation.
