When it comes to child custody, each family is unique

Just like each child, each family is unique. Texas families know that what works for one family may not fly in another. When it comes to child custody, courts can issue an order that suits an individual family unit in the best interest of a child. 

Khloe Kardashian is used to being a household name, but these days, her priority is parenting her young daughter. After giving birth to the child about a year ago, Kardashian's relationship with the child's father has become somewhat tumultuous. Despite the personal drama, both mother and father agree that the baby girl and her well-being are the absolute priority. The father is an athlete, and the two are currently trying to work out a custody arrangement that provides the child with the opportunity to spend time and develop a relationship with both parents. 

Kardashian admits, however, that she and the child's father do not have a court order in place to protect the arrangement. Many experts consider this to be inadvisable, because without a court order to hold parents accountable, there is potential for a parent to decide he or she no longer wishes to comply with the verbal agreement, and in such cases, the law cannot do much to help. Even if both parents get along and see eye to eye where a child is concerned, it is wise to have a court order in place to legally maintain the status quo in the future. 

If a Texas parent is looking to establish, modify or enforce a child custody order, he or she need not go it alone. An experienced attorney can help a client navigate the legal system to protect the best interests of the child at the center of the situation. Once an order has been put in place by a court, it becomes enforceable by law, taking pressure off of a parent and helping to ensure that both parents comply for the good of a child.
