Modifying child support after switching jobs

People in Texas change jobs for all kinds of reasons. Some are tired of hostile workplaces while others accept higher paying positions or ones with better benefits. Whatever the reason, a noncustodial parent who switches jobs should be sure to find out whether he or she needs to modify a child support order.

Child custody: Which type would be best in your case?

Like many other Texas parents, you might recall the exact moment you made a final decision to file for divorce. Perhaps, you had already tried everything you could think of to save your marriage, but things just kept getting worse. After making the decision, you no doubt worried about how the upcoming changes in life would affect your children. Their best interests are your top priority, and you want to do what is necessary to help them cope and successfully adapt to a new lifestyle.

Charged with neglect? You need a strong child protection defense

Parents in Texas have to be the best they can with what they have, and many sacrifice their own needs in order to meet their children's. Sadly, parents who are struggling financially are often easy targets for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services -- DFPS. In these situations, creating a strong child protection defense is essential.

Moms struggle to get the child support they need

Although both men and women can be excellent caregivers, the majority of parents with primary custody are mothers. In Texas, these mothers can typically get child support whether they were ever married or not. But for many, getting that support is probably harder than it should be.

What you should know when creating your child protection defense

Being investigated for alleged child abuse is frightening enough as it is, and not fully understanding the process can make it worse. Parents may feel as if they have few -- if any -- options for defending themselves. However, taking the time to learn more about how these allegations are handled in Texas can be very helpful when creating a child protection defense.
