Texas child support and Amanda Stanton headlines

The decision to divorce can be a difficult one to come to terms with. Many Texas couples will expend an enormous amount of time and energy attempting to settle their differences prior to deciding that a divorce is the best option. One of the primary reasons that many couples will go to such lengths is that there are children involved. When there are children in the family, their well-being must be taken into account in deciding on child custody and child support issues.

Over the course of time, one's financial picture can change dramatically. It is possible that the custodial parent could have been earning very little at the time of the divorce; however, circumstances have since changed and that same parent now earns considerably more than the other parent. When this happens, it may be time to take another look at the child support agreement.

Media reports regarding a recent child custody and child support disagreement involving Amanda Stanton from The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise and her children's father have made headlines. At the time that child support was determined, Stanton was only earning $100 per month, and child support to be paid by the father was set at $2000 per month. Since that time, Stanton has appeared on two reality television shows and has been earning money by posting on social media sites. Her current income is in excess of $20,000 per month.

The purpose of child support is not to penalize one parent or provide spousal support; it is to provide for the children. When Texas parents decide that they no longer wish to remain together, they must come to terms with how they will take care of the children. However, this is often not the end of the discussion. Over the course of time, circumstances change, and it is possible that the agreement should change also.
