Things to keep in mind when aiming for an amicable divorce

In Texas, as in most other states, many married couples will decide to end their unions during 2019 or beyond. Such a decision is personal and typically not one that is made lightly. Not every couple who files for divorce is entangled in a bitter fight where the goal is to get revenge before the other person does.

Though other states passed laws to raise minimum wage for hard-working employees, the Lone Star State did not. For many single parents, even working two jobs may not make them enough money to keep a roof over their children's heads. In times of such financial uncertainty, it is important for parents who may be eligible to receive child support payments to do so.
