How do you know if you'll get alimony after a divorce?

Texas parents usually understand that child support is essential for their child's well-being. Less clear, however, is the importance of alimony. Many people are understandably uncomfortable with the idea of paying their ex after a divorce, but doing so is often necessary. 

Who pays child support in a joint custody situation?

In general, whichever parent has primary custody of their child will also receive support payments from their ex. However, with custody increasingly trending toward joint custody and shared parenting, how are Texas parents to handle child support payments? Ultimately, it comes down to the individual needs of each family. 

How to talk to children about divorce

Children have specific emotional needs when it comes to facing the complex and traumatic issue of divorce. Your role as a parent is crucial in helping your children get through the divorce feeling supported and loved.

Should I pursue sole child custody?

Joint custody may be edging its way toward being the new norm after divorce, but that does not mean it is the right choice for every family in Texas. Child custody should always reflect the best interests of the individual child. For some, sole custody might be a more appropriate choice. 

Starting a business? Make sure it's shielded from divorce

Owning a business is one of the most rewarding experiences for entrepreneurs. While these innovative individuals often put a great deal of planning and effort into even the smallest aspects of their companies, they often fail to implement an important protection -- a prenup before any planned marriage. Creating a barrier between business and divorce is important for Texas business owners who want to make sure that their livelihood is not threatened.
