A Little Known Tip for Winning Your Child Custody Suit

It's terrifying to think that you could lose physical custody of your child. However, numerous Texas mothers and fathers have lost the right to have their children live with them. Instead, they are relegated spending just a couple days a week, or less, with their children after losing their child custody suits.

However, there's one thing you can do that will help increase the chances that you win your child custody battle in court. The strategy is straightforward and simple: It involves keeping a journal of your parenting activities.

Parents who have a written record of the child-caring activities they've done are better able to show the court the important parenting role they've played as a parent. When you can do this, you'll have a better chance of winning your child custody lawsuit. Keeping a parenting journal is also important for parents who have shared custody of their children, just in case their parental rights are ever challenged, the information will serve as powerful evidence of what a good parent they've been.

When keeping your childcare journal, you'll want to make a brief note of the activities you've engaged in with your child. Perhaps you took your child to his or her soccer game. Maybe you read a book to your child, cooked a meal together or took your child to a doctor's appointment. Write these activities down in a notebook, in the calendar in your cellphone or on a wall calendar as the record could prove useful at a later time.

Do you need help with a child custody lawsuit? A Houston family lawyer can assist you in evaluating your parental rights and options.
