After Richardson divorce, proving a parent is unfit to have at least some child custody rights can be difficult. It takes a lot of evidence to show a parent is unfit, and it’s typically only in extreme cases the court deems a parent unfit. Family law lawyers in Texas are the best tool to use when attempting to accomplish this feat.
While it’s difficult to prove a parent is unfit to have some custody, the following are some of the reasons a court may consider your child’s other parent is unfit.
- History of domestic violence – If your child’s other parent has any history of domestic violence, you may have a case against him or her. It’s best if there is a record filed with the police department, which is why it’s always good to report incidences of domestic violence.
- History or current child abuse – Child abuse of any kind, such as emotional, verbal, physical, and sexual is typically an automatic cause for losing custody or not receiving custody.
- History of drug or alcohol abuse – A child is not safe with someone who abuses alcohol and drugs. Even if the parent isn’t using during the child custody case, the court may fear the parent may begin using again, so he or she may deem the parent unfit.
