Staged abduction will likely cost mom custody of her child

Some situations dictate the need for a more responsible individual to look out for the best interests of a child. Circumstances such as one or both parents mistreating the child, using drugs or abusing alcohol could give the courts just cause to remove a child from the care of their parents. When neither parent is capable of properly caring for a child, family law courts in Texas and other U.S. states may award custody to another family member or to an outside party.

When a marriage ends, there is usually a reason why. Often, the couple is not on good terms with each other when divorce proceedings begin.

Divorces, and the child custody hearings that often accompany them, can be difficult. They're not typically happy court appearances to have to make. Often feelings are hurt in divorce cases and that can spill over into a custody dispute. Both parents want what's in the best interests of the child, but they often disagree on what that is. In Texas and other states, jurors and judges often face the challenge of determining which parent is best suited to care for the children based on the evidence provided by both sides.
