As technology continues to improve, Texas residents conduct an increasing amount of their lives online. One advancement in technology that could cause more problems than solutions is the prospect of conducting a divorce online. Paying bills, making purchases and keeping track of a stock portfolio online may be a good idea, but when it comes to divorce, the stakes are infinitely higher. Getting divorced online may seem like a way to save time and money, but risking not only the futures of each party but also any children involved may not be the best option.
One of the most important decisions made in any divorce with children is custody. A computer is incapable of understanding the dynamics of every family, and it may only offer so-called cookie cutter options. It cannot account for all of the factors involved. When custody arrangements are not tailored to the needs of a particular family, the children suffer the most.
