ChildSupport in Texas
Texashas established a formula to calculate what amount a non-custodial parent should pay for child support. The amount withheld is usually based on the non-custodial parent's net income each month. If a child receives social security or disability benefits from the paying spouse's old age social security or disability benefits, those amounts are subtracted from the total amount of child support as calculated under the Texas child support guidelines.

A judge may adjust child support up or down from the presumptive amount under the guidelines depending on several factors, including:
  Texas Divorceand Child Custody
Generally,child custody involves both physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody refers to where the children live, and legal custody refers to decisions made about the children's education, health care, religion and other issues. A common agreement results in one parent obtaining physical custody of the children, with the non-custodial parent obtaining visitation time. Legal custody is often awarded as joint custody, with both parents having input into important decisions. Of course, custody and visitation varies with each family.

  How Social Media is Impacting Divorce Cases  
  These days, owning a smartphone is not a luxury, and most people are constantly tapped into some form of social media. They share cute pictures of their kids and pets as simply a routine part of life, and some people even use social media to vent frustrations or look for advice.

However, in a divorce case, what you may have shared on social media can create ample evidence that can be used against one or both parties to affect alimony, child support, child custody, and more.
  Child Custody
Social media reveals what people are doing, where they're doing it, and when it's happening. If a mother is working through a child custody case, but posts pictures that show she was out on the town drinking when she should have been watching the children, a judge may rule that the children will not be properly cared for by her. Conversely, if a father is supposed to be searching for a job, but posts pictures and status updates that reveal he's playing video games all day, the judge may rule harshly on alimony and child support decisions.

Email and Text Messages

Email and text messages are admissible in court, and can even be subpoenaed. If one party in the marriage discusses something in an email or text message about a new job or an upcoming bonus that hasn't been revealed in court, this can be used as evidence that the person isn't being honest in his or her financial declarations. Generally speaking, it is best to keep all of your written communications free of sensitive information. This is especially true immediately prior to, and during, a divorce. It is best to consider that, if you wouldn't want a judge reading it, then don't write it - anywhere.
Dating Websites
Creating a profile on an online dating website, before a divorce is finalized, is downright foolish. Not only does it show evidence of potential cheating, but most people present themselves differently in an online profile than they do in person. If someone is caught saying something different on a dating site than is said in court, it can lead to problems in their divorce case.

While most people don't list their income on social media, they often find plenty of other ways to brag about their financial prosperity. If someone claims a low income to avoid high alimony or child support payments, but posts pictures of expensive vacations or purchases, this can be used against them in a divorce court.
Even when a husband is blocked from seeing his estranged wife's social media, he can still often see what her friends are posting. If she goes on an expensive vacation with a mutual friend and that friend makes a post about the trip, the aggrieved spouse can use this evidence to prove that his wife isn't being honest in her finances.

Prevent Negative Effects from Social Media

    The best way to do to avoid having your use of social media ruining any portion of a divorce case, is to simply stop using it. Many people may be tempted to actually delete their accounts and scrub their online lives. However, once litigation has begun, social media becomes evidence. Deleting accounts is actually a destruction of evidence, and doing so on the advice of a lawyer can cause that attorney to be sanctioned.

    One thing is certain. If you are in the process of going through a divorce, you can be sure that your spouse and their lawyer(s) are combing through your online life. You may wish to consider protecting yourself by staying away from all of your social media related accounts until your divorce is finalized.
