If you are currently involved in a divorce or child custody dispute, no parent has the right to flee with his/her child. Despite being the child’s biological parent or legal guardian, if a person takes his or her child, it is considered kidnapping in Texas.
Regardless of the type of lawyer you choose, the Texas Family Code sets out certain standards to guide the Courts in acting as the voice of reason in matters involving child custody and visitation.
In Texas, child support payments are considered confidential information, which means they are not open to the public.
When a parent fails to make child support payments, they not only fail to provide for their child, but also violate a court order.
