Co-parenting after divorce is now a popular arrangement between divorcing parents. Successful co-parenting arrangements usually succeed when parents live in close proximity to each other, have equitable households and are good at scheduling. However, even with the above three factors, a co-parenting arrangement cannot succeed between former spouses unless they are committed to being civil and responsible.
A case concerning a child is called a Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship. Such a suit is defined as, ’a suit in which the appointment of a managing conservator, or a possessory conservator, access to or support of a child, or establishment or termination of the parent-child relationship is requested.’
One spouse must have lived in Texas for at least six months before filing and must live in the county for 90 days in which the divorce will be filed. If a spouse resides outside the state, he or she may file the Texas county in which his or her spouse resides. Meeting the residency requirement in Texas is required in order for the court to have jurisdiction over the case.
