Unmarried parents need a “parenting plan” for their child or children. A “parenting plan” is usually in a court order from a custody lawsuit (in legalese “A Suit Affecting a Parent-Child Relationship” or “SAPCR”). However, sometimes parties are able to make their own “parenting plan” by an agreement. If you are going to avoid the courts and make your own plan, then getting help from a family law attorney can save your money in the long run and make the plan last longer without court involvement.
A custody suit is included in every divorce with children under the age of 18 years and/or not yet graduated from high school.
A “custody suit” may involve some of the following topics and issues: “right and duties”, “periods of possession”, “child support”, “health and dental support”, “supervised visitation”, “domestic violence” and other issues.
Sometimes when unmarried parents separate, one partner will contact the Child Support Division of the Texas Attorney General (OAG). The OAG can file a lawsuit to establish parentage and set-up child support. If you have been served with papers by the OAG, then you should get legal help before an Order gets signed by a judge.
