A paternity suit could help you establish your rights

There is a stereotype in both the legal system and our society that women are favored in child custody cases, largely because women have tended to receive sole custody of children more often than men throughout history. This is no longer the case, and courts are moving toward dividing parenting time equally in the event of a divorce. However, one can never quite be certain how a child custody hearing will play out because one or both parties almost always wants more time with their children.

Your divorce will affect your entire life

If you are going through a divorce, it is extremely important that you do not treat the matter lightly. Divorce is a very complex legal area, and there are many important issues that must be addressed, including child support, alimony and much more. What is most important to remember about these issues is that they are more than just issues that you will face in the immediate aftermath of the divorce. You will still be dealing with them after you grow accustomed to your post-married life.

What should I know about adoption in Texas?

Adoption is a wonderful thing for many people: parents, children and couples looking to adopt. Though adoption is wonderful, it can also be quite difficult since it is a legal procedure with more than a few hurdles that must be overcome. In order to ensure that your adoption process is smooth, and there are no issues later on down the road, it is highly recommended that couples familiarize themselves with adoption law. Since the law varies by state, Texas residents should be aware of Texas laws.

An attorney may help prove you deserve alimony

Divorces can be stressful, especially when both spouses cannot agree on certain issue such as property division, child custody or alimony. Alimony, when it is requested, isn't always awarded. Just because one person feels as though they deserve to be paid a certain amount every month, doesn't mean that their former spouse or the courts will agree with them. When it comes to alimony disputes, people request it for various reasons. Sometimes, the reason for requesting it is valid, while other times, it is obvious that they are just trying to get more money out of their spouse.
