Divorce after 50 -- what should I be worried about?

An unhappy marriage is an unhappy marriage regardless of age. While in the past some unhappily married couples might have felt as though they had no options but to stick it out because of their age, current attitudes are much different. The Pew Research Center reported that, over the past 25 years, divorce actually decreased by 21 percent among adults between the ages of 25 and 39. For those over the age of 50, divorce rates skyrocketed by 109 percent.

Compromise in child custody is essential for co-parenting

Parents who file for divorce might be ending their romantic relationships, but this does not mean that they are cutting off all contact. Texas parents can usually expect to continue their parenting relationships with their ex. Rather than focusing on divided child custody efforts, many parents are now considering how to make co-parenting relationships work even when their marriages did not last.

Should I litigate over child custody?

There are certain financial implications involved with divorce, including a potential drop in income, division of assets and more. These are usually manageable, though, and any severe financial impact can be mitigated through careful planning and attention to detail. However, there are certain family law issues that some parents find difficult to overcome. Namely, child custody.

What sources of income count toward child support?

Divorce is full of complicated and confusing matters, one of which is child support. Not only do couples argue over who should have to pay child support but also how much the ex-spouse should have to pay. Even for those who were never married, ending a relationship that resulted in children still involves discussing child support.

Child protection defense: Mother of 3 charged with neglect

For parents, there is usually nothing more important than the safety of their children. Unfortunately, parents are still human and as such are not perfect. Parents in Texas make decisions each and every day that they later regret, wondering if there was a better option at the time. When these decisions lead to allegations of abuse or neglect, mounting a strong and timely child protection defense can be essential.
