Advice for adopting your stepchild in Texas

When you have stepchildren in your life, it is likely that you have spent many years in the full-time role as their parent. They will look up to you as a parental figure, and indeed, while they will know that the two of you are not related by blood, they will likely refer to you as "mom" or "dad."

How can you avoid mistakes dividing 401(k) assets in a divorce?

Texas individuals and couples take the time to plan and prepare for the future. This often means having finances in order for retirement. While these steps are often necessary, divorcing couples often find their retirement assets up at the chopping block, limiting how much they have to spend during their retirement years post-divorce. Although this could plague any divorcing couple, those going through a high-asset divorce might face added difficulties.

Parental relocation post-divorce

Dealing with family law issues during divorce is challenging. Parents in Texas may not entirely agree with child custody and support issues. However, these are vital decisions to make. It might seem like it took an eternity to reach agreeable terms, so it can be very frustrating when these issues need to be revisited post-divorce.

Mastering the art of co-parenting after divorce

Many Texans have ideas of what it will like to be a parent, but the reality is often much more than a person can imagine. It is a love like never before, and this level of love and desire to care for a child can make it challenging to address major life changes, such as divorce. Ending a marriage means that parents need to establish a child custody arrangement. On paper, this might seem straightforward. However, in action, this process is challenging, as it is often difficult for divorcing parents to reach an amicable agreement.

Fighting for custody as a Texas father

Going through a custody battle is a stressful process that, unfortunately, many parents, and especially fathers, have to go through. As a father, you might feel as though the odds are stacked against you when it comes to fighting for the custody of your child in Texas. However, it is important to not lose hope, since you have the legal right to fight for a relationship with your child.

What can unmarried couples can do when they are buying a home?

Just because a couple's relationship is going strong, it does not mean that nuptials are impending. This is true whether or not children are involved. What often happens in these matters is that the couple will live like most married spouses. They will purchase a house together. Because this is a major purchase, one does not go through this process lightly or even quickly. Just like married couples, there is no guarantee the relationship will last. Thus, it is important for unmarried couples in Texas to consider ways to protect this purchase.

How divorce could affect individualized education programs

The state of Texas has many different accommodations for children with special needs or disabilities. It is important to explore all of the different options for your family, especially if you have a child diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Divorce can create a great deal of stress for children, and their struggles with autism may become even more pronounced during the process. Therefore, it is important to make sure that your child is getting all of the support that he or she needs.
