Why fathers receiving sole custody is more common

Whether you are currently going through a divorce in Texas or you are just considering filing your divorce papers, you may be involved in the child custody process. As part of the procedures, the judge presiding over the case may determine whether sole-custody or joint-custody is in the best interest of the child. While it used to be commonplace for mothers to receive sole physical custody of the children in a divorce case, more and more fathers are being granted full-custody of their children.

Can your wages be garnished for failure to pay child support?

If you are a Texan obligated to pay child support under a court order, you need to know that your wages are subject to garnishment should you fall behind in your child support payments and/or refuse to make them. The Office of the Texas Attorney General explains that your employer must withhold money from your paycheck once it receives a proper Notice to Withhold Income for Child Support from the appropriate court or agency.

My ex is keeping the kids from me to get her way. What can I do?

There is perhaps no greater conflict in family law than that of child custody and visitation rights. As the non-custodial parent, you still have the right to see your children, as outlined in your parenting agreement. You might have the kids every weekend or every other week. Like many other non-custodial parents in Texas, you may have your children for several weeks in the summer and on certain holidays. It can be frustrating and heartbreaking if your ex-spouse makes it difficult to see your children.

3 key benefits of divorce mediation

If you are working your way through a divorce, and, particularly, if you are doing so and also a father, you may be considering undergoing divorce mediation, as opposed to traditional courtroom litigation. Unless the situation between you and your soon-to-be-former wife is especially acrimonious, you may be wise to do so, as mediation offers numerous benefits for you, as well as any children you and your wife may share.

What causes gray divorce?

When you recite the vows, ‘until death do us part,’ you may be planning on spending the rest of your life with your spouse. Yet, with over half of the marriages in the United States ending in divorce, you may end up filing for divorce. Surprisingly, the divorce rate among couples over the age of 50 is growing steadily, as reported by Bowling Green State University. The phenomenon known as gray divorce is shown in the fact that 600,000 people over the age of 50 filed for divorce in 2009, equating to one in four marriages. That number grew from one in ten marriages ending in divorce in 1990. Researchers predict that there will be more than 800,000 gray divorces by 2030.

Fathers play a crucial role in children’s lives

Although children who are involved in a divorce may end up in the sole-custody of one parent, it is crucial that they are exposed to both their mother and father on a regular basis. Children need the financial and emotional support of both parents in order to have the best chance of a living a full and happy life. However, a number of children who live with their mothers’ have limited access to their fathers. Studies show that this limitation can impede on a child’s development.
