Determining health insurance coverage for children of divorce

While the quality of healthcare available to children in San Antonio and throughout the rest of the U.S. is among the finest in the world, it often comes at a great cost. The skyrocketing costs of medical services may often deter parents from taking their kids to the doctor due to limitations with or a lack of health insurance coverage. Indeed, the Child Trends Data Bank reports that as recently as 2013, only 60 percent of kids in America were covered under private health insurance plans.

How can you get the court to enforce an order for child support?

If you happen to be owed a child support obligation from your ex-spouse in San Antonio, you may find the actually collecting your payments could end being much more difficult than earning the right to receive them in the first place. So what are you to do if your spouse misses his or her payments?

Understanding annulment in Texas

For many of the San Antonio residents we work with here at The Law Office of Roland R. Esparza, P.C., getting divorced is not enough. In some cases, they may question whether the marriage was ever valid to begin with. This can be achieved through an annulment. If you are looking to challenge the validity of a marriage, you may want to learn all that you can about the annulment process so as to avoid any potential issues that may arise as it plays itself out.

Alternative methods to resolving child custody disputes

The issues that divorcing couples in San Antonio may face during their court proceedings may depend largely on where they are in their lives when they separate. A study shared by the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that of the study group members who married between the ages of 15 and 46, 42 percent of their marriages ended up failing before reaching the latter age. Those who divorce in their middle age years may likely be forced to deal with child custody issues. In such cases, if the parents involved are unable to create an agreed parenting plan, the Texas Family Code has outlined alternative methods through which such issues may be resolved.
