There are multiple bills sponsored already in Texas that affect the parent-child relationship in one way or another. One bill makes it criminal for a Guardian ad Litem to release confidential information. Another bill puts a time limit of one year on a temporary order when the suit is filed by a nonparent. And another bill proposes equal parenting, HB453, although this bill still leaves that up to the judge’s discretion.
