Deadbeat parents can be held accountable

For parents in Texas going through a divorce, there can be several key points of contention, including child support assessment and the child custody plan. While divorcing parents are struggling to be close to their children in many cases, parents in other cases attempt to evade their obligations to their children. A non-custodial parent or a parent with less custodial time will usually be mandated by the court to pay child support to the custodial parent. Factors including income, outstanding expenses and time with the child are included in the calculation of the final support payment.

Children can benefit from shared parenting

For Texas parents who are going through a divorce, there are a number of common ideas about child custody and shared parenting that can actually undermine efforts to develop a positive plan. Indeed, decisions about custody and parenting time are generally made according to a standard of the best interests of the child, which correctly prioritizes the most important issues but can be interpreted differently by judges, lawyers and parents.

Avoiding revenge in a divorce

Unhappy couples in Texas may be tempted to seek revenge in the context of divorce litigation. While the urge to humiliate and embarrass a misbehaving spouse is understandable, giving in to that temptation is not recommended. The financial implications of paying lawyers to wage a proxy war are obvious, but the more subtle effects of such behavior heavily impact the emotional and mental health of everyone involved.
