In addition to limiting a parent’s custody rights through supervised or limited visitation, a background of domestic violence can also result in other restrictions on the parent. To be allowed access to the child, the parent may have to comply with a court order under the Texas Family Code that limits the parent in the following ways:
In cases that involve domestic violence, the courts make decisions based on their evaluation of whether the parent’s access to the child puts the child’s emotional or physical well-being in danger. They also take into consideration whether the domestic violence occurred within two years prior to the lawsuit or during the time of the lawsuit.
Consulting a child custody attorney in Texas who has experience in these types of domestic violence cases can help protect a parent’s rights and the best interests of the child.
