Tips for a child custody hearing

Texas parents who are going through a divorce will likely need to determine issues related to custody and visitation. It is best if they can negotiate a legally binding agreement between themselves with the assistance of their respective attorneys. However, if they are unable to do so, the custody battle may go to court where the judge will use the standard of the child's best interests to make a decision. There are things people may be able to do to present themselves as the best parent in this situation.

When a child becomes emancipated

In the state of Texas, children become legally emancipated when they reach the age of majority. If their parents are divorced, the noncustodial parent will no longer have an obligation to pay child support. In some rare cases, however, the child may become legally emancipated before reaching the age of majority.

If the couple did not have a buyout agreement when they founded the company, the business could end up being given to one of the estranged spouses or be sold altogether.
