What it means to be a family has changed over the years. In most households here in Texas and elsewhere, strict gender roles no longer exist. Blended families exist all over the country, and many of them thrive.

Because of these and other societal changes, the way that people divorce has changed as well. Numerous couples decide to work together to reach a settlement on their own rather than engage in litigation. Granted, in some instances, going to court is necessary, but when possible, many couples take the opportunity to take another path.

Why avoid litigation?

Walking through divorce is a complex and emotionally challenging process, no matter how wealthy a couple is or how valuable their marital assets may be.

In Texas, when a couple divorces, each party is still required to supply financial support to their children. The court may order one parent to pay child support — usually, the person not named the primary custody holder or the spouse who has been the breadwinner in the marriage. The amount ordered is determined by looking at a number of factors. What happens if, down the line, the payer or payee feels there is an issue with the ordered amount?

Believe it or not, child support orders are adjustable. How can the payer or payee seek a support modification?

One of the most difficult issues to address during divorce is what will happen to the children. Texas parents are naturally concerned with the well-being of the youngest members of the family, and many times, they want to avoid litigation and stressful conflict for the benefit of the kids. You may want to do this by drafting your own parenting plan out of court.

A parenting plan will outline how custody and visitation will work. When you decide to keep this matter out of court, you can effectively address specific needs and craft your plan to match your specific objective. Creating your own parenting plan can be a peaceful and productive way to address child custody concerns during your divorce.

As a member of the military, you are no stranger to sacrifice. You have undergone rigorous training, endured long periods separated from loved ones and accepted the duties that your superiors assign to you. When it comes to your children, however, you may not be as willing to sacrifice your time with them.

If you are dealing with child custody issues, you likely understand that your military service may negatively affect your efforts to obtain a custody arrangement that gives you equitable time with your children. Child custody matters are complex in the best of circumstances, and you may be concerned about protecting your rights. The first step is understanding how your service to your country plays into custody decisions.
