Custody & Possession and Access of Children:
Child custody SAPCR law in Texas is based on the best interest of the child standard. The court will make a determination of what is in the best interest of the child, taking into account various factors including the child’s age, mental and physical health, and relationship with each parent. The court may also consider whether one parent has been the primary caregiver of the child.

The court may also award sole or joint custody of the child in Texas. When awarding joint custody, the court will consider how well the parents can communicate and cooperate with each other. If one parent is awarded sole custody, then they will be responsible for making decisions regarding health care, education, and other important matters regarding the child’s upbringing.

When making a decision about child custody, the court will also consider what type of parenting plan is in the best interest of the child. Joint legal custody allows each parent to have equal say in matters relating to their child’s upbringing, while joint physical custody allows both parents to spend time with their child.

At the Law Offices of Shane M. Boasberg, we understand that deciding who should have primary custody of a child is an important decision and how it can affect the entire family. Shane M. Boasberg will help you understand your rights and advocate for what is in the best interest of your child. We are here to provide you with effective legal representation as you go through this process. Contact us today to set up an appointment.
Child Support:
Texas law requires that both parents contribute to the financial support of their child. The amount of child support that is ordered will be based on a variety of factors, including the income of each parent and the number of children that are being supported. The law also provides for a formula to calculate the amount of child support that should be paid.

In Texas, child support is calculated using a percentage of the paying parent’s income. The percentage depends on the number of children being supported. For one child, the percentage is 20%; for two children, it is 25%; and for three children, it is 30%. These percentages are increased by 5% for each additional child. The court may order a different amount if it determines that the calculation would be unjust or inappropriate in a particular case.

In addition to child support, the court may also order medical support for children in the form of medical insurance coverage or cash payments. When ordering medical support, the court considers each parent’s ability to provide health care coverage and any available public programs that can be used to provide health care coverage for a child.

We can also assist clients in filing petitions for modification or enforcement of existing orders, as well as helping them to negotiate agreements that will be fair for both parties.

Division Of Property
When a couple decides to get a divorce in Texas, one of the first things they need to decide is how to divide their property. This can be a complicated process, especially if there are disagreements over what is considered marital property and what is not. A family law attorney can help you understand your rights and guide you through the process of dividing your property fairly.

Community and separate property law in Texas is a complex web of rules and regulations that govern the division of assets upon divorce. While there are general guidelines that apply in most cases, there are also a number of factors that can influence how assets are divided. One important consideration is whether the property in question is considered community or separate property. Generally, any assets or income acquired during the marriage will be considered community property, while assets and income acquired prior to the marriage will be considered separate property.

However, there are many exceptions to this rule, and it is often up to the courts to decide how to divide assets fairly between divorcing spouses. If you are considering divorce and need legal assistance sorting through these complex laws, please contact the Law Offices of Shane M. Boasberg for a free consultation.
