Gosselin custody issues

Texas parents dealing with custody issues involving more than one child may relate to the frustrations of Jon and Kate Gosselin and their eight children. As children get older, there may be points at which they wish that circumstances would change. In the case of one of the older Gosselin daughters, her father is seeking custody due to the girl's allegations of her mother's cruelty. However, parents of multiple children can face an uphill battle in seeking custody changes for just one child.

International child abductions and the law

Texas shares a border with a foreign nation, so there might be more cases involving international child custody abducitons than there might be in the rest of America. Recent cases involving parents who violated custody orders and fled the nation are challenging the body of law surrounding these issues, and legislative reforms on the matter have already begun to be put into effect.

Protecting money without a prenuptial agreement in Texas

When people divorce, the property they have acquired during the marriage will be considered to be community property while the property each owned prior to the marriage is considered to be separate and non-marital property in general. The situation can be much less straightforward than it may initially seem, however, especially if assets are commingled.

Joint custody may be best choice for some children of divorce

Many childcare experts assume that children of divorce fare better if they live with only one parent. Texas children of divorce may spend time with the noncustodial parent on a court-approved schedule, but the social upheaval of moving back and forth between two homes is viewed by many as stressful for the children.

The consequences of failing to pay child support

Texas parents who have a court order to pay child support should be aware of the serious consequences of failing to pay the support due. A failure to pay is considered violation of a court order, and parents can be put in jail for failing to pay. Some parents are jailed multiple times for not paying child support.
