When looking at the practicalities of Texas custody agreements it is important to consider that it should not be approached as a means of getting back at your former partner. Many (probably most) divorces or splits in relationships end in a bad way, and often both of the parties involved are not thinking particularly pleasant thoughts about the other person.
Unfortunately, it is at these times that the whole matter of child custody is arranged, and so it can sometimes seem difficult to see beyond the need for vengeance or revenge, and get back at that other person by lashing out in a Texas custody agreement that you arrange to split up the custody of your children.
The bottom line is that you need to see the care of your children and the breakdown of your relationship as two totally separate things. The reasons for this are very simple. Namely that simply because someone ended up being a ‘rat’ in a relationship context does not make them a bad mother or father, and so you need to see beyond that to the practicalities of how being separated from them would be for your children.
You don’t want them to be punished any more than they have to be (and there has to be a degree of it, because divorces or splits are always a little messy, and at the very least they will probably have their living arrangements altered a little – i.e. they move out, or one of their parents moves out).
Nevertheless, the best options with Texas custody agreements is always going to be to look to what the best outcome would be for your children, and then to work back from there.
Do not turn a stressful scenario into a disastrous scenario for your children. You need to swallow your pride, and look at the process through their eyes, and what would be best for them.
