Texas fathers going through a divorce or navigating the child support system as single dads may often find the situation overwhelming or confusing. However, these problems can be exacerbated when race and poverty enter the picture to complicate factors. "Where's Daddy?" is a new documentary that aims to explore how the American child support system affects African American families and, more specifically, the relationship between black men and their children. The film also looks at the impact of poverty on family relationships, noting that 70 percent of all child support debt in the country is owed by noncustodial parents who make less than $10,000 each year or have no income at all.
A person who is getting married in Texas may not like the thought of asking the prospective spouse for a prenuptial agreement. However, parents who have significant wealth may want to protect their assets in the event that their children get divorced. To make the concept of a prenuptial agreement more appealing, it can be a good idea to approach the subject at an early age.
