Consider college expenses in parenting plans

When couples divorce with young children, paying for college may be far from their minds. However, child custody plays an important role in a person's eligibility for financial aid in university. Some Texas colleges will consider the income and assets of both parents' households, including shared assets with new spouses, while others only look at the custodial parents' finances. Different divorce agreements and a parenting plan may also result in different obligations to pay for college expenses.

Disputing rights to possession of a child can lengthen divorce

Getting a divorce can often take a long time, and many people seek ways to shorten the process. This is sometimes possible with mediation, but other time contentious issues like rights to possession of a child require added attention. While it can be necessary for some Texas divorces to involve a judge or multiple rounds of disputes, it is important to remember that this process can lengthen the divorce process.

Breastfeeding may have impact on parenting plans

The dissolution of a marriage can understandably be complicated, especially for those with children. However, it can be even more difficult for parents in Texas who have a breastfeeding child. In light of this, breastfeeding can certainly have an impact on a child custody case, including on the parenting plans created during a divorce proceeding.

Parenting plans, talking with children may help during divorce

For some married couples in Texas, the process of getting divorced is emotionally painful yet straightforward. However, this is not true for those with children. A couple of tips may help parents to help their children through the divorce process emotionally while they simultaneously work on their parenting plans or aggressively pursue custody in court.

Rights to possession of a child and parental disabilities

Having a child should be one of the most joyous times in a parent's life. Unfortunately, parents with low IQs often end up trying to prove they are worthy parents and capable enough to raise their children. In Texas and in other states, parental rights to possession of a child are questioned in 80 percent of disabled adults.
