New rules for making child support payments in prison

As Barack Obama nears the end of his presidency, his administration intends to spearhead another effort to reform the criminal justice system. The potentially new regulation changes would help eliminate the policies that leave ex-inmates with substantial debt by allowing prisoners to make child support modifications. For many inmates in Texas and across the country, child support payments are a major burden.

Divorce after age 50

Many Texas residents who are in their 50s are earning the highest incomes of their careers and saving money for retirement.

Establishing paternity in Texas

While many children in Texas are born to married parents, there are also numerous births in which parents remain unmarried. Maternity is easily established as a mother gives birth to her child, but paternity is not always automatically established. However, a child is dependent on both parents for love and support in various forms, which makes the establishment of paternity a priority. Paternity benefits not only the child, but also the father in terms of rights and responsibilities.
