Why a family care plan is so important for Texas military parents

As a service member of the U.S. military in Texas, who also happens to be a parent, you likely already understand how challenging it can be to juggle your military duties with your obligations and responsibilities at home.

Teens and Designer Drugs: A Criminal Defense Attorney Weighs In

While you may not be familiar with the phrase "designer drug," you've probably heard of drugs like ecstasy and rohypnol-both of which are common examples of designer drugs.

Not receiving the child support owed you?

Many divorced couples in Texas have children who are still minors or in other ways still qualify for financial support from their parents. The sad truth of the matter is, though, many of them do not receive the funds they need. The support-paying parent either can't afford to pay or simply refuses to.

An Attorney Can Help With False Accusations of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence doesn't always take place between two spouses. The law defines domestic violence as disputes between any family members or two people in a relationship. Whatever the case may be, the common misconceptions happen all too often. Many times people shake their heads and ask, why didn't she/he just leave? The truth of the matter is, when violence in the home or relationship takes place the abuser is often not mentally stable, is manipulative, or both. Getting up and leaving, if not done with the proper planning and help, can make the situation much more dangerous, if not deadly. However, often times domestic violence charges can be handed out inaccurately, which can lead to a whole host of problems for the accused.

How does child custody work in Texas?

Getting a divorce with children involved can make the whole thing difficult to handle.

Your child custody arrangement could impact how you accomplish this goal.
