How fathers can gain custody

When you and your wife get a divorce in Texas, one of your primary concerns is deciding who will have custody of your children. At the Law Office of Brian Turner, we understand that you want as much time with your children as possible.

When you discuss custody, you may be tempted to bring up child support. According to the Huffington Post, though, you should discuss child support later. This is because some people may see child support as the sole reason you want custody of your children. Instead, it is recommended that your focus on custody and then discuss financial support once a situation has been arranged. As you consider custody arrangments, you should usually negotiate to have a lot of time with your children. It is a good idea to show that you know what your children need every day and why more time with you will be beneficial.

Additionally, it can be helpful to create a calendar for each custody situation you and your ex-wife suggest. This can help you both to see what a proposed arrangement will look like. By looking at the different calendars for each plan, you can identify periods when your children may not see you often or times when one spouse will be responsible for most parenting duties. This allows you to create a schedule which gives you both plenty of time with the kids and distributes parenting responsibilities evenly.

As you discuss your custody arrangement, it is important to remember to get along with your spouse. This is because you and your ex-wife are more likely to have a custody arrangement which suits you both if you can agree before you go to court.
