Reasons to request modification of child support

Divorcing with children can be a challenging time for parents in Texas and elsewhere. Nonetheless, parents will eventually reach an agreement with regards to parenting time and financial support of the child. When child support is involved in a divorce settlement, the amount paid can vary greatly. In some cases, parents split most costs and child support is enough to set aside income differences between the parents. However, other parents have larger expenses to address, especially if a custodial parent is caring for a child primarily on his or her own or a child has high expenses due to certain factors.

Special needs parents should explore unusual custody strategies

Raising a special needs child has a profound impact on how you parent. Whether your child has autism, ADHD or Down syndrome, you will have to adjust your approach to parenting, as well as your expectations for your child to fit with their unique needs.

Alimony and new tax laws for 2019

With the close of the year quickly approaching, residents in Texas and elsewhere are concerned how ending a marriage may affect them. This is not only focused on the holidays occurring in the winter months, but also tax implications that may hit them this coming tax year. Divorcing is never easy. However, it is important to understand where it is more beneficial to reach a divorce settlement before or after the end of the year.

What are the child custody laws in Texas?

Divorcing with children can be a very trying and emotional time. Much like spouses do not see eye-to-eye on divorce issues they are working through, divorcing parents too face problems and issues of not agreeing with on another. Although both parents may have the best interests of the child in mind, this does not always translate into a workable agreement. Because of this, child custody can look different from one family to the next in Texas and elsewhere.

Tips for co-parenting after divorce

Parents in Texas and other states across the nation have an idea of what parenting will look like from childbirth until the age of majority. Unfortunately, these ideas do not always play out. Certain life events, like divorce, can interrupt the intentions parents have. However, it is possible for divorce parents to still work together to meet these goals as much as possible.

Guiding you through the divorce legal process

Whether a couple has been married five decades or five months, the truth of the matter is that any time a couple gets married, they should consider the idea that their marriage may not last forever. Thinking about divorce is not easy to do, especially when one is in the planning phase of getting married. Nonetheless, it is important to consider this possibility because it is vital to protect oneself.
