New app developed for child support

Texas parents who have child support orders in place may still experience confusion with these orders. Because they provide a basis for a generic situation, they often do not incorporate specific details that are related to the former couple's actual situation. Often, parents create a system of debits and credits in which one parent pays for an expense and then expects compensation from the other parent. A new child support app was created to tackle this problem and provide more transparency.

Credit scores when a marriage ends

While people in Texas generally think that the end of a marriage will have a negative impact on them financially, a survey of recently divorced individuals showed that credit scores can often rise when a couple breaks up. The study, released by an online credit education company, reviewed responses from 526 divorced people in numerous social groups and the related impact of how a divorce affects finances.

Millions of dollars given to wife in alimony

While Texas audiences enjoyed the candid discussions of alimony in the comedic "The Alimony Tour," the host of the one-man show was actually using the proceeds from the tour to pay his ex-wife alimony. The star of the show, John Cleese, had to perform the show in order to comply with the settlement regarding his high-asset divorce.

Texas law ignored for interference with child custody

Apparently, the Texas penal code 25.03 regarding interference with child custody is not enforced in most cities around the state including Dallas, El Paso, Houston and San Antonio. The law stipulates that anyone knowingly taking or retaining a child when there is a standing judgment in the custody matter is in violation of a criminal offense that can carry up to a two-year prison sentence. However, for 2012, only Austin has records indicating five arrests were made by the Travis County Sheriff's Office. The district attorney there confirmed two people were charged with interference of child custody.
