It seems like it must be a frustrating back and forth child custody dispute between a Texas mother and Mexican/French father for all involved.

The decisions made in family law are often complex and difficult. You are deciding the future path of your family and likely creating your vision of what your life will be from scratch. That's not an easy task. But at least those decisions are somewhat in your control, and maybe you even initiated the divorce.

The tapes of super celebrity Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva are currently a staple of nearly every news program.
