The parties can request a procedure for the court to set the custody regime or the parties can participate in mediation to help the parties reach an agreement. Or you can open a case at the Federal Prosecutor`s Department of Child Advoca promotion (OAG). Although the OAG cannot represent you, the OAG can help you get care, a visit, child care (including child support) and a medical support order. For more information on opening a case at the OAG, please call 1-800-255-8014 or the Texas Attorney General Child Support Division. Ownership orders prepared by OAG can be adapted to common scenarios. If your case has particular concerns, such as a child. B under 3 years of age or previous domestic violence, ask child care staff if they can tailor an order to your family`s needs. Read the court order before you leave the office. If there is an error, notify the babysitter or an assistant attorney general before you leave and ask for a copy that reflects agreements with child care staff. Texas does not have a separation agreement.
Instead, the state has temporary orders. After the consent of the parties or by order of the Tribunal, the conditions of access and assistance of temporary orders may be enshrined in the final decree on divorce. Texas does not use the term «visit.» However, as mentioned above, Texas uses the terms «possession and access.» Possession and access refer to when parents have physical custody of the children or when they can go with the children. Texas has two property and access plans: standard and extended standards. Yes, yes. The law states that Texas judges must consider evidence of domestic violence in custody and visit decisions. See Texas Family Code Kapitel 153.004 and 153.005. If the parent does not allow access and there is no assistance mission, you can file a child assistance case with the OAG for the adoption of a child custody order dealing with the education/visit period or file a case with a district court. Parents, dependants or non-custodians can apply for help from the children through the OAG to place an order. Unlike hiring a private lawyer to pursue a legal case on your behalf, assistant attorneys general represent the state of Texas, not the parents.
