College is an expense that you as a parent usually pay for your children. In a divorce situation, who pays for college can become a complex situation. Unless you made plans in your divorce settlement, you may face some issues when it comes time to pay for your child's postsecondary education in Texas.
The typical arrangement for custody in the past in Texas was one parent getting the children and the other getting visitation rights. As time has gone by, though, the family court system has seen the negative effects this type of arrangement can have on the children involved. If you get a divorce today, the court may suggest something different called 50/50 custody.
