Perhaps you can recall a few incidents where you and your spouse got into some pretty volatile arguments. Maybe you had the best of intentions to simply talk through some problems the two of you were having at the time, and then things unexpectedly escalated into full-blown screaming matches. Doors slammed, you both said unkind words, and you wound up leaving the house and going for a long drive on a Texas highway to try to cool down and to avoid further altercation.
No matter how amicable two Texas parents may be, divorce or separation can be difficult for the youngest members of the family. In order to alleviate unnecessary suffering and emotional duress for the children, some parents choose to avoid a lengthy court battle and work together on a parenting plan that is uniquely suited to their family.
