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.
In Texas most cases, alimony is limited to three years because it is supposed to be temporary. Alimony is only awarded if a spouse who has been married for at least 10 years cannot support herself or himself, or if there is domestic violence and the violent spouse is convicted during the divorce case. This being said, marital fault can be considered when the court determines an alimony award and this is not limited to just the spouse who may or may not be the obligor (payor).
