How do you plan for the chaos of summer?

During the school year, things are pretty routine for divorced parents in Texas simply because things are routine for the children. Your custody schedule stays the same and your obligations stay the same. When summer hits, though, the kids are free from school and chaos can reign. To prepare for this and keep it from being difficult, you should plan in advance.

Retirement accounts are often part of a high asset divorce

If you are getting a divorce or contemplating a legal separation, and you both have retirement accounts, you may be required to share these assets. The judge may even award both accounts to one party. Whether you have to share or are being awarded these funds, you need to know the rules that govern this type of transaction.

The importance of co-parenting

One of the most important things children need is love, stability and a relationship with both parents. However, during and after a divorce, the latter can be difficult to provide no matter how good the parents' intentions are. Even in a shared parenting arrangement where the children spend a fairly equal amount of time with both parents, it can still be difficult for the parents to be involved in the children's activities, school functions and daily lives.

Grandparents' rights and informal agreements

Grandparents are a very important part of a child's life. In many cases, grandparents act as the primary care givers while the child's parents are at work, and there are even situations where the parents and children live with the grandparents. When all is going well, there is usually very little thought given to the idea of grandparents' rights, but when there is a divorce or a falling out, it can turn into a major issue quickly.
