The Hague Convention and international child custody issues

The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of Child Abduction, a multilateral treaty, has 98 countries as signatories, including the United States. As international relationships become more common in Texas and across the country, this treaty may become increasingly relevant in child custody disputes. The end of any relationship can lead to serious legal and financial battles, especially when children are involved. Both parents may feel that they deserve sole custody over the child. In addition, when a relationship comes to an end, one parent may want to return to their home country. A shared child and a custody agreement may make this more complicated.

Getting equal treatment in child custody cases

Fathers in Texas who are going through a divorce may be worried that judges will be biased against them if they are seeking child custody. Traditionally, the family arrangement was usually that the mother took care of the children while the father worked outside the home. If parents divorced, courts usually assumed that the situation should continue that way and gave custody to the mother.

Child custody modifications

When parents in Texas divorce, they or a family law court judge will establish a child custody agreement. These agreements address issues such as physical and legal custody, parenting time and, when necessary, child support payments. In most cases, these agreements are binding and will last until a child becomes an adult. However, it is sometimes necessary for parents to request a modification to these agreements.
