The Best Interests Of The Child
Texas courts and juries cannot legally use a parent’s gender as a factor when determining custody or primary possession of the children. Instead, they look at all the other factors that determine the best interests of the children. Some of these factors are:
- Physical and mental health of each parent
- Who would better be able to provide a stable home environment
- Depending on the age of the children, the wishes of the children
We use these factors and many others to frame our argument to the court as to why you should be granted primary possession of your children. Psychological factors in each parent that affect the long-term best interests of children are often overlooked by lawyers and the courts. Where possible, we use these factors to explain why the other parent would not be the right choice to be awarded primary possession of the children.
