What does the court consider an "unfit parent"? | Austin Divorce Lawyer | Kimbrough Legal, PLLC
Hello, I'm Tycha Kimbrough. You've probably heard the term unfit parent thrown around, but you're probably wondering what does that really mean Under Texas law? An unfit parent is a parent who could have a negative and significant impact on a child's emotional development and or physical health. Examples of such behavior that shows one is unfit to parent would be someone who has abandoned a child who is neglectful and or has committed acts of abuse.
