Child support enforcement technology could see an upgrade

States may see some support from the federal government for an important program that supports the well-being of children. Currently, each state is responsible to monitor and enforce child support payments from individuals in their own location. A proposed federal program would create an IT service that would take on these duties for all 50 states, making states like Texas not responsible to maintain its own program. 

Child custody myths are dispelled with research

For many individuals, making a plan to share parenting time with an ex can be a challenge. Child custody has its share of myths that some individuals cling to because of bias, self-interest or gender politics. In Texas, when making decisions about parenting, judges strive to act based upon the best interests of the child. Recent research documents that shared parenting, in general, supports the best interests of a child. 

I'm afraid my ex will make child abuse allegations against me

Unfortunately, false allegations of child abuse pop up in many divorces. In some cases, the parent making the allegation may believe the abuse to have occurred, but in many situations, the parent knows quite well that the accusation is false. Perhaps the parent is doing it to be malicious, or the parent genuinely believes the children would be better off having limited contact with the other parent. Maybe mental illness is involved.

For individuals in Texas going through the end of their marriage, a few common suggestions may help them meet the challenges of this trying time.
