You've gotten a divorce, and you settled your child custody and visitation arrangements with your ex. Everything is going well when you get the call that you've been promoted. Now, the company wants to move you across the country.
Summer is a beautiful time to enjoy bonding with your children. You and your former spouse may have each taken an opportunity to travel with your children at some point. Vacations, holidays and weekend cookouts can all be the basis of great memories for years to come. However, if you're in the process of getting divorced, you may need to look at your parenting plan and visitation schedule to ensure it remains fair.
Child custody and parental visitation schedules are created in the best interest of the child(ren) with the goal of keeping the child(ren) as emotionally healthy and happy as possible under the circumstances. Implementing these schedules can be difficult and the situation is complicated even more when the parents live a significant distance apart.
In Texas, even a judge is not above the law. Recently, a Texas family law judge in Aransas County was placed under a temporary restraining order. The restraining order forbids the judge from visiting his 10-year-old daughter without permission from the daughter's mother - his ex-wife.
