Family law issues of blended families in Texas

While some people from Houston, Texas may consider divorce as a failure, others may regard the end of marriage as a chance to have a fresh start.

Marital dissolution and divorce is becoming more and more and no one is necessarily immune from the impact of divorce.

Divorce also opens a series of issues for divorcing couples such as alimony, child support and child custody.

Government's role in unpaid child support

Readers in Houston, Texas, may know that child support is a monthly payment that the non-custodial parents make as their share in raising the child.

The amount of child support is based on factors like the child's every day expenses, health care and the other parent's ability to earn an income. For this reason, unpaid child support can be a serious issue, particularly for a parent with disabilities.
