What are some challenges for teen parents in Texas?

Last week, we discussed how teenagers who have a child and need to go through the family court system regarding child custody and child support need to have a next friend. That post might have some of our Texas readers wanting to know more about teen pregnancy and how related issues can affect the teen parents.

Teen parents, child support and child custody in Texas

Having a child is a big responsibility. For teenage parents, having to learn about the family law system is sometimes necessary if they have to seek child support or to establish paternity. The teen parent will soon learn that while they can be held responsible to care for a child, they still aren't considered responsible in the eyes of the Texas civil court system if they aren't yet 18 years old. There are some special considerations for these teen parents as they venture through the child support and family law system.

The collaborative process might reduce stress during divorce

In last week's blog, we discussed how even an amicable divorce can be difficult. The stress of having to deal with court appearances and the thought of having someone else making choices about how your assets and debts might be more than you can deal with. There is a possible solution that can remove some of these stress-inducing situations. That option is a collaborative divorce.

Why do amicable divorces seem so difficult?

When you got married, you probably envisioned a life that was all ups with just a few minor downs. While it sometimes works out that way, the reality is that marriages are much like a roller coaster. For some people, that roller coaster is too much to deal with and they decide they need to get off of it for good. It is then that they file for a divorce. Our Texas readers might enjoy learning how to cope with the harsh realities of divorce.
