Court authorizes serving of child support notice on Facebook

Texas residents may be aware of the use of social media by the legal profession to assist them in child support and divorce investigations. Sites such as Facebook can provide valuable information about the lifestyles of parents who claim to be broke, or the infidelities of married spouses, and have been used by several family law professionals. A support magistrate in another state recently made a ruling about child support that might make social media websites even more of a tool to be used for legal purposes.

Child support is much more than just basic needs and food

Texas couples who are considering divorce will likely find that the aspect of child support may be one of the most difficult issues to handle. It is only natural for parents to be emotional at this time, and without proper consideration, child support agreements may be found lacking when it is put into practice. Fortunately, there are legal professionals who are experienced mediators and aim to assist parents in drafting these important agreements.

There are ways to avoid court dictation about child custody

Texas parents who have gone through divorce may agree that the whole process can be less traumatic if they can agree on matters such as child custody prior to going to court. Leaving the decisions related to child custody up to a judge could be devastating for parents and children. Although most parents wish to remain a part of the lives of their children, it is not uncommon for the spouses to have reached a stage where communication has broken down.

Matters to attend to before the property division process starts

Considering filing for divorce may force couples to take a good look at their assets, and agree on how they would like to have them divided. Texas is a community property state, meaning that all assets acquired during the marriage will effectively be split on a 50/50 basis. However, if there is an existing prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, couples may have some control over the property division process. In addition to the items addressed in such an agreement, there are financial matters that may need attention prior to commencement of divorce proceedings.
