In this video, family law attorney Sean Palmer explains the key Texas Supreme Court case on which Texas judges rely whenever they are looking at how to review the best interests of a child.
The case is Holley v. Adams, a 1976 case that for the first time, gathered and listed the basic issues that may be presented in court when arguing a case involving the “best interest” of a child.
