Do you have to stay in contact after a divorce?

After a divorce, you may wish to cut all ties with your former husband or wife, but you might have to wait a little while longer. Although the strain of a divorce is hard on you and your ex-spouse, it's still a good idea to have a way to reach him or her for tax-related or child-related purposes.

Non-custodial fathers: know the factors that affect child support

Child support laws have been changing and reforming over recent years to look more and more at the rights of the non-custodial parent, which is often the father. In the past, fathers were assumed to make more money and thus be the ones to pay more child support to the mother. Now, these laws often look at the income of both parents and many other aspects of the non-custodial parent involved.

Is adult adoption a good way to guarantee asset distribution?

There are times when an adult adoption is important, like if you need to take care of a relative with a disability or want to make sure someone you aren't related to is able to obtain trust funds without those funds going to your friends or family members first. The trouble is that some adult adoptions won't protect the person you care about in the case of your death, and they may not help him or her obtain the assets you wanted to leave behind.

Custody cases can be decided by a judge: Be proactive

When you go through a divorce or separation, it's vital to put your child's needs first. The best interests of your child are always going to be the court's main priority, as they should be yours. If you and your spouse can't resolve your child custody decisions outside court, then the court will use its power to choose for you in the interests of your child.

Estate planning after remarriage: An important step

Estate planning is important if you want to make sure your loved ones receive as many assets as possible after you pass away. This is particularly important in cases where you have a blended family. For example, if you have children from two marriages, you'll want to have an estate plan and will that accounts for the needs of each child, regardless of who their mother or father is.

Caring for your grandkids might come with legal issues

Raising or caring your grandchildren in the Fort Bend area can come with a myriad of issues. From handling medical care to dealing with educational requirements, you may experience some challenges that were not present when you were raising your children. The chances are good that you have several questions regarding legal issues that may come up.

High wage earners may have sticker shock from child support

Getting divorced is generally an unpleasant process. Even if you and your spouse agree that there is no potential to save your marriage, it still hurts to end such an important relationship. Emotions run high, and you may find yourself behaving in uncharacteristic ways. You may feel strong resentment about how much child support was ordered.

As a grandparent, can you get custody of your grandchildren?

There are few things as powerful as the love of a grandparent for his or her grandchildren. You probably love your grandkids and want the best for them. You would do anything to protect them, even having them come to live with you if your child is unwilling or unable to provide for them. The bond you share is powerful, but you may find yourself wondering what legal rights you have.

The role of the non-custodial parent in child custody arrangement

As you prepare to negotiate child custody arrangements with your spouse in Texas, you should have an understanding of the role a non-custodial parent plays in these arrangements. This is important to know in the event that you become the non-custodial parent as deemed by the court or through negotiations with your former spouse.

What grandparents can do to protect visitation with grandkids

Being a grandparent can be one of the most rewarding and joyful times in your life. Often spending quality time with grandchildren during holidays or throughout the year is what grandparents say they look forward to most. Just ask any of them what their grandkids are doing now, and you’re sure to get a wallet (or iPhone) full of pictures and a beaming grandparent talking about the latest activities.
