Child support for fathers in Texas

Texas residents will likely be aware that traditional gender roles are becoming less and less relevant as time goes on. Data from the U.S. Census Bureau reveals that women rather than men are the breadwinners in an increasing number of American homes, and more and more fathers are electing to stay home to help raise their children while their wives pursue careers. Child support is most frequently paid by fathers to mothers after a divorce, but that paradigm is also likely to be challenged in the coming years.

Financial issues in divorce

Texas residents who are considering a divorce should keep certain facts in mind regarding their finances. For example, they should make sure that they have knowledge of all of the marital assets. In some cases, spouses may attempt to conceal assets from one another. More commonly, people may not always be aware of the true value of their assets. It is important to remember that after tax, an asset like a retirement account may be worth considerably less.

Prepping for positive co-parenting

A co-parenting agreement might seem burdensome to a Texas parent who has a tough time getting along with their ex-spouse. Nonetheless, it is necessary to note that children have lasting connections to both parents and that working together as peacefully as possible benefits them. In making the best of a co-parenting plan, it is important to see the child's other parent as a partner.
