Education & Case Preparation
Family Law and the civil court can be a challenging experience for all people involved, but a high conflict custody battle seriously injures children the existence of this type of case (being caught between the parents) automatically throws the children into a loyalty conflict as children want to remain loyal to both of their parents. If a parent files to remove a fit parent then the other parent must have adequate tools & resources in order to defend their rights. These pages and their listed resources touch upon different points of your legal case. Free information on how to file a complaint with Texas state professional licensing boards, regarding their court appointed roles on family law cases. Free legal & court approved forms are also available under the Texas Resources tab. We highly suggest mediation vs. litigation to cut down on the amount of trauma & legal abuse that may occur and to keep money in your pocket.
The real ongoing issue is that children being ordered into abusive custody situations, The Leadership Council on Child Abuse and Interpersonal Violence indicates that annually 58,000 children are ordered into an abusive house. There is also limited accountability within the industry itself, outside of complaints to their respective boards which to date the Dept of Health & Human Services is back logged with approximately 2000 open investigations of complaints with a 2/3 year wait time, as of Feb 2017. UPDATE: The marriage and family therapist's board is now investigating cases (Sept 2019) accepted for investigation Feb 2017.
