Protecting your child: The International Hague Convention

As a parent of a child who has two parents from different countries, you know that your divorce has more custody concerns than others.

Family conflict can be very impactful on kids

Many things could have the possibility to affect how likely a person is to get divorced in the future. This not only includes things that have happened in their adult life, but also things that happened when they were a kid. A recent study points to being exposed to a lot of family conflict when one is a kid being one of the things that could leave a person with higher chances of a divorce as an adult.

Start with the basics of Texas child custody law

Child custody issues are probably the ones that generate the greatest amount of friction and require the greatest amount of delicacy in the area of family law.
