When seeking guardianship of mom or dad is appropriate

For most people, watching parents age can be difficult. Physical and/or mental health issues may set in that make it challenging and sometimes even impossible for them to care for themselves adequately. If you have a parent who has become incapacitated in some way, according to Texas laws, you can seek guardianship so that you may be awarded the legal right to make necessary decisions for him or her.

Are you unable to pay child support? You have options.

Child support is often one of the most contentious issues between two parents who are divorcing or two biological parents who are unmarried. In most cases, the non-custodial parent bears the burden of making payments to the primary custodian in order to assist with the care of his or her children. Biological parents have the obligation to financially support their kids until they reach adulthood, but what happens if a parent is unable to adequately meet this demand?

Social Media and Divorce

If you and your spouse are having serious problems and you think divorce is the next step, be cautious on social media. Many Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and various other social media users enjoy sharing every momentous event of their lives via these platforms. You've very likely seen friends, relatives or co-workers going through a break-up online. They share all the painful details and take every opportunity to bash their ex. They may even brag about how great their lives are now going, touting a vacation or a raise. These very public posts have the very real potential of coming back to haunt them. So, beware and steer clear of this behavior when you are considering or going through a divorce.
