Every Child Needs the Love of Both Parents
A Non-custodial Parent's Guide
Judges like parents to be responsible adults who work together for the best interest of their child. Studies show that children do better when their parents support each other’s decisions and provide clear guidelines and expectations to their children. Working together for the child’s best interest sometimes requires the parents to set aside their personal feelings.
This external website includes English and Spanish resources for parents who do not have primary custody of their children, sponsored by Legal Aid of Northwest Texas and the Texas Attorney General's Office. It contains legal information about custody, child support, visitation, grandparents' rights and paternity issues. It provides some forms that might be useful to a non-custodial parent.
