Singer tries to get her "chicks" in a row for divorce

Texas residents love some good old country music and all the trappings that accompany it. Cowboy boots, rodeos and hard-working men and women are staple themes in the country music world. The Lone Star State has played host to legendary acts over the years, and many readers may be familiar with The Dixie Chicks. Singer Natalie Maines is strapping on her boots, but this time, she is headed for divorce court rather than center stage.

Child custody: Parents charged with abducting their kids

A man and woman, both aged 32, have been returned to the Lone Star state to face charges in connection with allegedly abducting their three children. Child custody of their kids was not granted to the Texas couple who authorities say took their children during a supervised visit. Both have been charged with interference with child custody while the man faces an additional charge of unlawful restraint.

Dodging child support? Major shame in that game

Texas parents are well aware that the cost of raising a child continues to increase. Though surely, necessities such as food, clothing and shelter are expensive on their own, parents must also factor in expenses like extracurricular activities, child care, medical care and other common costs. Many single parents rely on child support to offset some of these costs, as the payments are intended to be used, but if the parent responsible doesn't make his or her payments, the other parent is left to shoulder the financial burden alone.
