THE MARRIAGE CONTRACT
In the eyes of the law marriage is a contract whereby a man and a woman agree to enter into a union for life for their mutual benefit, to provide each other with companionship, sexual gratification and economic help and to procreate and raise children. The fact that none of these considerations may be mentioned at the time of marriage does not make them any the less binding. They are inherent in the marital contract. Many of them result from customs and religious doctrines that are almost 2,000 years old and have been incorporated into present-day laws by both our legislatures and our courts.

An uncontested divorce or a non contested divorce is where the parties agree upon everything such as:

SAN ANTONIO CHILD CUSTODY LAWYER
Deciding who gets custody of the children during a divorce can be one of the most difficult things for a parent and the court to do. An experieced San Antonio Child Custody lawyer will simplify the process. A court will always base its decision on the best interests of the child, not the desires of either parent, when making a Child Custody decision There are several factors that a court will consider in rendering this decision, such as the child’s age, health, and the financial situation of the parents.
SAN ANTONIO CHILD SUPPORT LAWYER
The courts normally require that the parent who does not have custody pay the other parent child support until the child/children reach the age of 18 or become self-sufficient. The State of Texas has set the guidelines for determining the amount of child support that should be paid. Numerous factors are used in determining the amount that should be paid such as: the income of the parties, work-related child care cost, health insurance cost and pre-existing child support obligations. These are guidelines the court may also consider other factors in setting child support such as unusual needs of the child, or the ability of the parent to pay more or less.
