Dealing with child custody after divorce

Many of them have experienced trouble in their lives because they are not with their biological parents and their needs can turn into a family law concern.

Despite national decline, divorce still an option in Texas

Despite the common perception that the rate of divorce is as high as ever, readers here in Texas may be interested to discover that the overall rate is actually slowly declining. A recent report indicates that the number of divorce cases across the country is decreasing. In 1980, the divorce rate was almost 50 percent. Today, it sits at just over 40 percent. Of course, statistics only tell part of the story and, for the most part, can't adequately describe a particular family's situation. For many Texas couples, the hard decision on whether to part ways simply cannot be attributed to numbers applied at large.
