Since famous actress Gwyneth Paltrow announced that she and her husband were "consciously uncoupling" the media has been focusing on the positives of an amicable split. Along with this, there has been a lot of media coverage about the benefits to children for those parents that choose to go through the divorce process without a lot of conflict. Many experts agree with this sentiment and stress that parents should try to work through their child custody issues and come to an agreement that works for them.
However, this approach will not work for every Texas couple. Some experts have said that there needs to be more attention for those couples that simply cannot not come to these types of agreements. In some situations, there is one parent that refuses to cooperate. This high-conflict parent seems to fight every decision until the end. This parent may not be willing to co-parent with the other, or willing to sign any agreement with the person's soon-to-be ex-spouse.
