Most Texas parents want to spend as much time with their children as possible. However, a new study finds that fathers who are delinquent on their child support payments are less likely to see their kids. The study was published in the Journal of Marriage and Family in February.
A divorce can be especially damaging to a family business. Most business assets will be considered marital property unless certain legal actions are taken to prevent it. This may result in a business needing to be sold off. In community property states like Texas, a business is especially vulnerable. However, there are several legal steps a spouse can take to protect a family business.
Many Texas couples want to have children. For some, the route includes in vitro fertilization. However, in some cases the marriage might come to an end before the parents choose to implant the embryos created during the IVF process. In those cases, the question about what happens to the embryos after a divorce may arise.
Post-holiday divorces are common in Texas, and one of the first decisions that often needs to be made is what to do with the family home. The situation can be stressful, so it can be helpful to have neutral, non-emotional information on hand when making the decision.
In many divorces, child custody is one of the most contested issues, resulting in costly and litigious court battles. However, this may not be the only choice for your family. If you want more control over what happens to your children, it is time to explore alternatives to a traditional custody arrangement, such as a co-parenting plan. Co-parenting may offer your family the ability to custom-tailor a custody arrangement that protects the best interests of your family.
