SAPCR Cases: Suits Affecting Parent-Child Relationship

SAPCR cases affect the relationship between parents and children and can be challenging to resolve. SAPCR disputes can affect the outcome of a child custody case, so only certain persons can file them. According to Texas family law code §102.003, the only parties who can file a SAPCR case include those with specific interests in the child in question. 

The following parties can file a SAPCR case:

  • A Child’s Parent
  • A Person With Visitation Rights
  • A Child’s Guardian
  • A Party Alleging Paternity
  • A Child’s Foster Parent
  • An Orphaned Child’s Blood Relative
  • A Child’s Grandparent (if they meet standing requirements)
  • A Child’s Representative from an authorized Government Agency 

When you have an issue that needs to be handled in court, you need the legal assistance of an experienced attorney familiar with SAPCR cases. Texas courts prefer to make decisions that keep both parents in a child’s life. A relationship with both parents is considered in the best interest of the child in a case. The child's best interest is the law of family courtrooms throughout the state. 

The Texas Supreme Court set a standard of factors that clarify the child’s best interest standard, called The Holley Factors, which include: 

  • The child’s wishes
  • The child’s present and future needs
  • The child’s current dangers and facing them in the future
  • Each parent’s ability to care for their child
  • The child’s future plans
  • The stability of the homes in question; and
  • Each home’s stability
