Planning for the end of child support payments

Texas parents who either pay or receive child support may be wondering when the child support obligation ends. The specific guidelines for child support vary from one jurisdiction to the next. However, the requirement to pay ends in most cases when the child gets married, leaves for college, dies or reaches that age of majority.

Methods for collecting child support from parents outside Texas

When a noncustodial parent moves to another state, he or she is not beyond the reach of legal means to ensure that child support payments continue to reach the child or children still residing in Texas. Several forms of enforcement can be used to collect money when someone falls behind on child support.

The importance of establishing paternity for your child

Unmarried mothers and fathers are frequently at odds when it comes to child support, custody and visitation matters. When paternity has not been established, however, they become even more difficult to resolve. Texas courts require that paternity be established before a ruling is made on such issues.

Texas property division in divorces

People who are getting divorced in Texas probably know that Texas is community property state, but they may not be certain exactly what that means. In community property states, all property that is owned on the date of dissolution, as well as all financial obligations that have been taken on during the marriage, is presumed to be owned by both the husband and the wife. However, this is not nearly as straightforward as it may initially sound, and during the property division phase of a divorce the court will not always divide the community property equally.
