Prenups can help with more than just asset protection

Many things can make younger marrying couples different from other married couples. For one, younger couples may be more likely to not have much in the way of assets going into a marriage.

Helping children deal with divorce in Texas

Its no secret that things can get messy rather quickly when couples decide to end a marriage. The word divorce in itself is on occasion enough to induce cringes and bring about a myriad of mixed emotions for couples in Texas and across the country. When children are caught in the middle of a divorce, the life-altering experience can quickly become traumatic and stressful. However, there are steps that parents can take to soften the impact that a split can have on their children.

New rule in Texas proves effective at collecting child support

While some divorced parents welcome any kind of involvement in the lives of their children, sometimes one parent decides to isolate him or herself entirely from an ex spouse. Sometimes, the noncustodial parent who pays child support may decide to stop paying altogether. All parents are required to support their children financially, but when one parent decides to cut off support, the children ultimately suffer. Recently, a rule was implemented in the state of Texas that is proving to be an effective tool in collecting child support payments from delinquent parents.
