“Custody” is a term that is commonly used and comprises multiple aspects of the parent-child relationship, including: conservatorship (rights and duties); possession and access (the schedule of time with the children); and child support. Usually when someone refers to “50/50 custody” they are referring to the possession and access schedule for time each parent spends with the children. Agreements for 50/50 schedules for possession and access can come in a number of different forms. Two of the most common 50/50 schedules are described below:
Every case is different. A variation of the 50/50 schedule that works for one family may not work for another family. Parties can work together and discuss the option that best suits their family’s lifestyle.
In Texas, a no-fault divorce is often referred to as a divorce due to “insupportability.” Neither spouse is assigned blame for the break-up of the marriage. The parties simply indicate that the marriage can no longer work due to “irreconcilable differences” and that there is no reasonable expectation that they will reconcile with each other. A no-fault divorce typically involves less conflict because neither party is assigning blame to the other party for the divorce.Even if you and your spouse expect to reach an amicable resolution, it is extremely helpful to have the assistance of an experienced family law attorney who will advise you as to your rights and make sure that the process is handled correctly and efficiently.
