Divorce, divorce forms and self-help

Though various standard forms have been approved regarding divorce, the Texas Supreme Court has stated that "it is always best" to hire an attorney when contemplating a divorce. There is no shortage of online and other materials advertised allowing for individuals to handle the divorce themselves. However, as we mentioned in a previous post, divorce is never simple or easy under any circumstances.

Child support roundup in Texas County

One Texas County is in the process of arresting 64 individuals that apparently owe millions of dollars in child support. Though there are many other individuals that have also failed to pay on their child support obligations, the Texas Attorney General's office and local officials are focusing in on these particular individuals because these happen to be the most "notorious" of those behind on their child support payments.

Surrogate is also ruled the mother in Texas court

A couple of months back, we wrote about the ongoing child custody dispute that was occurring in Texas. The case involved a surrogate mother whose right to child custody of a pair of twins was challenged by the sperm donor.

The high cost of domestic violence

The Texas Council of Family Violence blames the domestic violence problem in part on the tendency of Texans to excuse the violence for other reasons. Individuals in our state sometimes blame the victim or other circumstances for why the domestic violence occurs, and too often the perpetrator of the violence is let off of the hook.

Eliminating conflict makes for better child custody arrangements

It appears that approximately half of children will have parents that divorce before that child turns 18-years old. But though this can be particularly tough for children to deal with, studies have shown that parents putting aside their differences for the sake of the child are more satisfied with their child custody arrangements.

Reports of domestic violence prevalent in Houston area

Though there has been an increase in women killed due to domestic violence during the year of 2011, what is called familicide (the killing of members of the entire nuclear family) has increased by 600 percent. There were six instances of familicide in 2011 as compared to 2010.
