Family Law in Texas
Family law is a state specific type of law. Each state is authorized to make their own laws regarding divorce, paternity, etc. The State of Texas does NOT care what the State of California does! Don't waste your time researching other states laws if you are involved in a family law case in Texas. Only the U.S. Supreme Court can interfere with Texas law. The most important case that comes to mind regarding the U S Supreme Court and state courts is the grandparent case that is commonly referred to as Troxel. It limited grandparents rights for most grandparents.
