The public toll of divorce in Texas

A divorce may become a public affair whether an individual is a movie star like Johnny Depp or an everyday person looking to end his or her marriage. Almost any move that an individual makes with his or her property may be seen as an attempt to reduce a marital estate. For instance, Depp recently decided to auction off a portion of his art collection.

Child support and private school

A Texas private school education can be expensive when two parents are paying for it, but after a divorce many custodial parents find themselves unable to meet the costs. Most non-custodial parents are responsible for paying basic child support, but that amount is not typically enough for private school. In some case, however, the custodial parent may be able to get additional support that is specifically earmarked for the child's private education.
