Most of us will agree that grandparents, aunts, uncles and other extended family members play an important role in a child’s life. Not to mention the fact that they often lend much needed assistance to todays busy parents. No doubt, the attachments that form between children and extended family can last a lifetime.
While an infant, the developmental issues are the need for food, sleep, physical contact and visitations so that the infant can recognize faces. During the tender years, the noncustodial parent should have frequent and regular visitations with the child. These periodic visits should be at least two hours in duration and no overnight stays are recommended.
Texas divides marital property as community property. This means any property owned by either spouse during the marriage is community property between the spouses. The court also divides marital debt at this time and ownership is recognized the same way. However, property that is owned by either spouse before the marriage is considered separate property. In a case involving children, the Texas divorce court often divides the property unequally. An equal division of the community property is not required by the Texas divorce laws, were as some other community property states adhere more to the 50-50 split rule.
