Arlington TX Child Custody Lawyer

Children can be the most contentious part of a separation and divorce. Parents cannot imagine giving up their kids for a portion of the time. Unfortunately, that seems to be what happens in divorce and custody cases. Finding an attorney that can help ease the transition and protect your rights is a top priority. 

Possession And Access and Conservatorship in Texas Child Custody Cases

Child custody is referred to as "conservatorship." The mother or father who has primary and/or physical  custody of the child is known as the "managing conservator." The parent  who is not primary is known as a "possessory conservator." Parents who share custody are "joint conservators." Joint conservators have rights and duties assigned separately and apart.  Arlington Texas Courts prefer both parents be involved and be doing conservators. The most disputed issues in joint conservator cases is which parent directs medical care and treatment and which parent directs educational upbringing. Many times, child custody judges just assign one to one parent and allow the other parent to make the decisions on the other issues. 

How does a Court Determine Child Custody and/or Conservatorship?

Child custody Cases are determined by the best fit for the child. Getting both parents to agree on the living arrangements and rights and duties of each parent is by far the best option. But many times, anger, frustration, and sadness inhibit one or both parents' ability to make permanent decisions for their children. It's important to have a good attorney that will explain your case, treat you as a friend, and help you make the best decision or present your case in the best possible light. I recommend the Brandy Austin Law Firm to help you through your child custody cases. Brandy Austin and Larry Mike will put in the time and effort to help you understand your case.

Seriously, Kate Spade. Stop it.

Kate Spade, Fall 2011.  She had several other great items (a piano clutch) during NYFW.  I'll keep you posted!

How Sweet!

Dearest Taylor,
I'll be the first to admit I'm a rather shy boy and since music is the most eloquent form of communication I can muster, I decided to record something for you — as sort of a "reply" to the breathtaking song on your current record. This is want I wanted so badly to tell you in person but could never quite put into words.

Everything about you is lovely. You're an immensely charming girl with a beautiful heart and more grace and elegance than I know how to describe. You are a true princess from a dreamy fairy tale, and above all, I just want you to know..I was enchanted to meet you too.

Love, Adam

I have waited

We all know how much Kate Spade makes my insides do backflips. But, even then, I have waited. Waited patiently to buy her book clutches. I passed up all these:

Even this one:

But, I'm not so sure I can pass this one up:

I mean, look at the back:

I LOVE Jane Austen and I LOVE Kate Spade.  This one was made for me, or at least I'm trying to convince myself I can afford the over $300 price tag.  Maybe I can save up for a bit....

New online magazine

Guess what?  I'm a Neo-traditionalist.  Yup, that's right.  I love combining traditional elements with modern ones.  I like new prints on classically designed dresses.  I like throwing dinner parties with a little semi-homemade flair.  I love rummage shopping, letterpress, hand-written thank-you notes, piggy banks in fun designs, Elizabeth Bennet and Sookie Stackhouse, traveling somewhere historical, baskets of flowers and chihuahuas with long red hair.  Better yet, there is a group of people out there just like me.  

And, they have a magazine that comes out TODAY!  Matchbook Magazine.

The matchbook girl...
views the world through rose colored glasses • loves to throw dinner parties, but has been known to burn the roast • values eccentricity over convention • is the first to laugh at her own bad jokes • knows the cha-cha, the charleston, and the tango • paints her nails bright coral when she's feeling blue • is infinitely curious • could happily live off of red velvet cake • pens hand written notes to her grandmother • has a signature shade of lipstick • secretly thinks she may be babe paley reincarnated • received an iPAD for her birthday, but will never give up her library card • has a bucket list a mile long and dreams a dime a dozen • is smart, but never a show-off • listens to the day's forecast, but trusts her own intuition • never says no to a sunday matinee at the theater • is quick to blush, but never short of a witty reply • has a skip in her step and a twinkle in her eye • always shares her last piece of gum

So, I've become obsessed with the National Geographic Channel, via Netflix.  There are so many great shows: Lockdown, Is it real?, DogTown, etc.  Every night before I go to sleep,  I watch an episode of DogTown.  The show is about the forgotten animals and the animals that are destined for euthanization.  Best Friends Animal Society takes on the toughest cases and gives every animal the best medical treatment possible.  They also took in 22 of the Michael Vick dogs, one of which, is required to live the rest of her days at DogTown.  I'm a huge animal lover and the dogs are just adorable:

They not only have dogs.  They take on ALL animals, including Squeaky:

How cute is he? Well, I can't adopt a extra pet at the moment and I don't have a lot of money to donate (they are a non-profit run on donations), but I can spare a little bit every month.  So, I set up a recurring monthly donation of $10.  It isn't a lot, but it may help pay for food every month.  You can do so as well by clicking here. 

But that's not all.  I wanted to do a little more.  There is also a wishlist of items that Best Friends would like to have for the animals, vets, and offices.  I have a soft spot for pigs, so I looked to see what the pigs wanted and one of the items was canned pumpkin.  In order to fill this little piggy wish, I went to Amazon's Subscribe & Save.  I ordered a 12-pack of organic canned pumpkin for $13.60.  Shipping was free and it was on special.  Since I got the item through Subscribe & Save, every month Best Friends will receive 12 cans of pumpkin from me for $13.60.  For a little under $25, I'm helping feed an abandoned dog and making a pot-bellied pig like Squeaky happy with a pumpkin treat! 

It's not a lot, but if we all do a little something to help out a charity we love, then combined, we can make a big impact.
