Most divorcing couples do their best to resolve all financial matters during the divorce process. In fact, resolving almost everything at that time is a legal necessity, especially in high asset divorce where many assets are in play. However, exes with shared children may find that over time, certain costs such as extracurricular activities, summer camp, insurance or phone bills may arise that were not considered in the original settlement. Here are some tips for Texas families broaching these issues in their 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.

Different divorce agreements and a parenting plan may also result in different obligations to pay for college expenses.
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.

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.
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.
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.
