Texas OAG spearheads shared parenting services

Posted on Wednesday, September 25th, 2013 at 9:53 pm    

Since recent studies indicate that children with divorced parents who receive attention from both parents get better grades in school than those who do not, the Texas’ Office of the Attorney General is offering parenting services to encourage divorced parents to become involved in their children’s lives.

The Attorney General’s Access and Visitation Hotline can be a tool for people to establish paternity, learn about child support, and access information about a parent’s right and responsibility to see his or her child.

The OAG also awards grants to organizations that advocate for divorced parent involvement. For this year, $579,000 was given to such organizations all over Texas, aiding education initiatives for cooperative parenting.

The OAG also allots limited funding for the resolution of custody or visitation disputes.

If you are facing divorce or are involved in a child custody dispute, you may consider seeking legal representation. Please call (832) 534-2589 to speak with our lawyers at the BB Law Group PLLC in The Woodlands today.
