Child support can cover out-of-pocket medical expenses

The cost of raising a child in Texas can vary from month to month or even on a weekly basis. While regular child support payments might help address most of a child's regular needs like food and housing, there are still many other costs that need to be accounted for. For example, how are divorced parents supposed to handle medical expenses that are not covered by insurance? This topic should be covered in a child support agreement.

Don't let financial fears hold you back from divorce

Living in an unhappy marriage can take a toll on a person's emotional health and well-being. When most people realize that their marriages are no longer working, they usually consider the next logical step -- divorce. However, like with all major decisions, a person who is thinking about divorce should understand the future financial implications of this action. This is especially true for Texas residents who are in or near retirement.

Dads: Make sure you understand your child custody rights

There is a lot of uncertainty that comes with filing for divorce. You may not be sure whether you will have to pay spousal support or if keeping the family home is a good idea. But like other fathers in Texas, you might worry that child custody already has a certain outcome. Many people believe that mothers are automatically granted primary custody, but as a father you have rights.

Man charged for not paying over $100k in overdue child support

Parents in Texas who are not in a relationship with one another generally still need to provide for their children. Often, this means one parent will make child support payments to the other, custodial parent. These payments are vital for children's well-being and development. If the paying parent cannot make proper payments, it can have a detrimental effect on an entire family, especially if payments haven't been made for quite some time. This is what authorities in one state claim about a man who was tried for his failure to pay child support.

Why expecting parents should be thinking about divorce

Married couples will face plenty of stressful events over the years. However, few may expect one of the biggest sources of stress to also come from one of the biggest sources of joy -- having a child. The reality is that any source of significant stress can contribute to divorce, so expecting parents in Texas may want to consider the benefits of a postnuptial agreement.
