Shared parenting before a Texas child custody battle

Divorce proceedings can be long and challenging, especially if children are involved. Many Texas parents will begin the separation process by agreeing to co-parent the child or children. Acting as a united couple with regard to children after a divorce is gaining traction across the nation as lawmakers propose bills that would start with the presumption of shared parenting, rather than the traditional approach of one parent being relegated to one night a week and a few weekends a month. Parental advocate groups have been pushing for legislation and more than 20 states are considering adopting these bills, making shared parenting the presumed child custody approach when a divorce is finalized.

Property division during a Texas divorce; plan before the wedding

Marriage and divorce have become two words that are commonly uttered in the same sentence. What was once thought to be a lifelong commitment and partnership with another can deteriorate to the point where ending the relationship may become the only option. For many Texas residents, the financial aspect of what happens after the divorce is not given thought until the inevitable is looming on the horizon. Money is property and property division is part of the dissolution of a marriage. Preparing for the possibility of not staying married does not guarantee that a divorce will happen, but it does help to ensure that both parties are prepared should the unfortunate happen.

Child support helps Texas kids reach their full potential

Supporting a child is a tremendous undertaking. The financial, emotional and time investment is a life-long commitment. Regardless of the parents desire to remain together as a couple, the commitment to the child or children remains in place. Child support agreements are often set in place to help custodial parents feed, clothe and shelter the kids. When a parent is unable to make the payments, Texas courts will often step in.

Texas couples see the positives of getting a prenuptial agreement

With pending nuptials, many couples shudder to think about bringing up finances unless it is to talk about the wedding. But discussing money and assets, both separate and what will soon become joint, is a crucial step for many newly-engaged couples. Instead of thinking any negativity associated with a prenuptial agreement, many Texas couples are focusing more on the positive and promising aspects that having one can bring to a relationship.
