You are preparing to finalize your divorce in Texas and have received word that your ex is going to be required to pay so much money for child support each month. Now, you are left trying to decide how to use those funds in the wisest way possible to maximize your money now that you are living on a single parent's budget.
If you are a Texas parent thinking about divorcing your spouse, you likely have at least a vague idea that you and your spouse will need to come to an agreement regarding the parenting time both of you will have with your children after the divorce. What you may not realize, however, is that the Texas Family Code contains the default parenting time provisions that will go into effect after your divorce if you and your spouse cannot come up with an agreement yourselves. These provisions go by the name of a Standard Possession Order.
