Texas project helps parents pay child support, get jobs

In Houston people can be critical of parents who do not support their children financially. Parents who have been delinquent in paying child support are sometimes misjudged and ostracized. Non-custodial parents, like any other people, may suffer from financial difficulties like losing their jobs and they may have no choice but to postpone or not pay child support. However, help is available for unemployed or underemployed non-custodial parents in the state.

Child support can save children from living in poverty

How can text and email affect a child custody dispute?

Convenience is the reason why many Houston, Texas, residents prefer communicating through text or email. However, those two methods of communication can be inconvenient when divorcing parties use them against one another in a divorce or child custody proceeding.

As much as possible, each ex-spouse needs to be cautious in order not to lose his or her custody of the children.
