How Do Courts Determine Custody?
Texas courts presume that joint legal and physical custody is in the best interests of the child. From there, several factors affect each case, including:
- The relationship between the parents and the child
- The location of each parent
- The needs of the child
- A history of child abuse, substance abuse or mental illness
Bracamonte Law, PLLC, can help understand what to expect and how to reach the results you desire.
If Child Protective Services has contacted you, we can advise on how to protect your parental rights.
How Do Courts Determine Child Support?
In Texas, family courts have a formula to determine child support. The court calculates the supporting parent’s monthly resources, then takes a percentage depending on the number of children. Bracamonte Law, PLLC, can give you a better assessment of what you may pay or receive in your child support arrangement.
