Many Texas residents are well aware of the heated disagreements that can happen during a child custody dispute. Such disagreements frequently occur because the parents may happen to have different opinions regarding what is in the best interest of the child or children at the center of the dispute. Of interest to readers may be the recent family law matters of actress Halle Berry and her ex-husband, model Gabriel Aubry.

Berry and Aubry went their separate ways in April 2010, but the two share a 3-year-old daughter who has been the subject of a child custody battle ever since. Most recently, 45-year-old Berry filed the necessary papers with a court to request that she be allowed to move with her daughter outside of the United States. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Aubry has vigorously opposed the proposed move.

Their story may be a familiar one to parents throughout Texas. Often times following a divorce, one parent may wish to move to another city or even another state. That poses a potential problem when the parents share custody over the child.

In all child custody disputes, judges will weigh and balance a number of factors. In Berry’s case, a judge may take into consideration certain allegations against Aubry, who is facing child endangerment charges due to an alleged incident involving the child’s nanny. For Texas parents seeking to modify current child custody arrangements, speaking to an experienced family law attorney may be helpful.
