Remarriage Most Likely Won't Affect Child Support - One question we encounter frequently is whether remarriage affects child support. In most Family Law matters, the answer to such questions is usually "it depends," because there is little "black and white" in the Texas Family Code. However, in this one area, there's not a lot of gray. Simply put, whether you're receiving or paying child support, your or your ex-spouse's remarriage should not make any difference in the amount of support you pay or receive. In Texas, unless the Court orders child support in excess of the statutory guidelines, child support payments are most often determined by a formula provided by the Legislature and Supreme Court.

Good advice. "If you are considering or are in the process of divorce, your attorney is your best advocate in this area. He or she should be able to ensure that you have access to information about all your assets. If you aren't yet in the process of divorce, it's a good idea to collect as much information now, before the divorce is filed, to prevent any information from being hidden from you."

One of the earliest challenges for divorced parents, particularly the non-primary parent, can be how to manage weekend visits with their children.

Many parents may not have been that involved with the nuts and bolts of their kids' lives before the divorce, so such tasks as bedtime routines, homework, household chores, and the like are unfamiliar and foreign. Consequently, when those newly divorced parents face weekends alone with their children, they can feel pressured to come up with a never-ending list of fun things for their kids to do during their visits.

That can undercut the purpose of visitation: to build and maintain a relationship with the children that hopefully mirrors what they would have had if there had been no divorce. When handled correctly, the non-primary parents' relationship with their kids can actually be better than it would have been without the divorce.
