Texas legislature debates subsidies for vulnerable children

Texas lawmakers got personal with each other recently, turning a legislative meeting into a debate about personal ethics and institutional racism. There are certainly many passionate feelings on all sides. No one can disagree that at the heart of the matter is the fact that many children who are exceptionally vulnerable -- those who come from unsafe environments -- are taken into state custody.

Consider becoming a foster parent

If you have been fortunate enough to have a stable home and have your physical and emotional needs provided for, you ought to take a moment and simply appreciate what an incredible blessing it is to have those things. Many children in the state of Texas are not so fortunate. The foster care system fights to give a second chance to children who have been born into exceptionally difficult or dangerous situations, but the needs are far greater than the number of families who are willing or able to take in foster children.

Figures start to roll in on new child support law

Back in September of 2016, the Texas Attorney General took aim at parents who do not pay their child support in a timely manner. The new law restricts parents who are sufficiently behind on their child support payments form registering their vehicles. The law has its supporters and detractors, and the preliminary results are beginning to trickle in.

Woman arrested for abusing disabled children

Whenever a family chooses to adopt, it is hopeful that the child has been offered a chance to be a part of a loving home and freedom from the many dangers that populate the foster care system. Unfortunately, adoption is not always a dream come true for the children who receive it. A Texas woman who adopted seven children with disabilities over several years has been taken into custody and the children have been removed form her care, after welfare workers found the children living in unsafe conditions.

Annulment under Texas law

There are many ways that a marriage can fail, but under certain circumstances, it is possible to have a marriage annulled in the state of Texas. Regardless of why you might want to have a marriage invalidated, the law allows for this to be accomplished if certain standards are met.

Texas expands remedies for collecting owed child support

One provision of a custody agreement that constantly seems to cause conflict is the child support obligation levied against a non-custodial parent. Despite the significant number of tools at the disposal of the custodial parent through the legal system, many parents who have a child support obligation choose to not pay what they owe. Whether this is because they feel that the sum they are charged with supplying is an unjust burden, or simply because they feel that they cannot afford to pay what they owe, they are placing themselves in a dangerous position.
