Legal enforcement of post-divorce support for service members

When it comes to families and the military, there are two considerations that couples must consider: military life is not for every marriage, and divorce is more complex when one or both members of a marriage serve or have served in the military. The sad fact is that the difficult life of a service member can take its toll on a marriage, and if a military couple decides to divorce, they should be prepared for the difficulties they may face.

An attorney can help you establish paternity

When we talk about fathers' rights, we often tackle the issue in terms of fathers who are worried about being denied time with their children based on court biases. While this gender bias in the courts is not nearly as serious as it may have once been, that does not mean that fathers will always receive an equal amount of parenting time with their children.

Thanksgiving. A Time to Assess.

What does Thanksgiving mean to each of us? For many, it's a time of year to take stock of what we've got to be thankful for.

Family care plans can help military parents

There are many things that can make a military divorce difficult, even before you consider all of the specific issues that military couples face such as division of military retirement. Consistently being stationed in different states can affect where you file, and deployment can make it difficult or impossible to make it to court hearings. However, the divorce itself is only one part of the battle. Unfortunately for military members, issues of family law often affect them for the rest of their lives.

Factors that affect child custody in Texas

When it comes to child custody in Texas, there are two options: joint managing conservatorships and sole managing conservatorships. These different options are essentially joint custody and sole custody, but some parents, particularly fathers, may be concerned by the idea of a sole managing conservatorship. In such an arrangement, one parent has the final say on nearly every aspect of a child's life, including where the child lives, what medical treatment they receive, education and more.
