Changing a child's last name after a divorce

Texas residents who are going through the divorce process may be wondering about whether it is possible for the mother to change her children's name back to her maiden name. It is not uncommon for a woman to change her last name to her maiden name after a divorce. However, there may be legal complications that arise if she is considering changing her children's names as well.

The fundamental aspects of a parenting plan

Under Texas law, parents may agree to an informal or legal parenting plan that details how their children spend time with them and how they make important decisions regarding their children. The decisions made in an informal parenting plan could be a little different from the legal order, which takes precedence. There are many basic aspects that the parents need to consider while focusing on arrangements that work best for the children.

Role of law enforcement in child abduction cases

In Texas, a public official or prosecutor may take legal action in child custody cases that meet specific criteria. To move forward with legal action, there must be an existing determination regarding child custody or a request from a court in connection with a pending proceeding involving such a matter. In addition, there must be reasonable suspicion that the child was removed overseas to a country that is a signatory to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction or retained in violation of a criminal statute.

Texas prenuptial agreements

When you are getting ready to get married and you want to make certain certain assets you own are protected in the event a divorce happens, a prenuptial agreement may be a good option for you. You may also be a person who is preparing to get married and your prospective spouse has requested that you sign a prenuptial agreement he or she has drafted. In either case, you may want to keep several important things in mind.
