What happens when your ex denies visitation after divorce?

You and your ex tried your hardest, but your marriage ended in divorce. Maybe you were too depressed or shocked to fight back and ask for custody. Maybe you were between jobs or hadn't secured proper housing by the time the divorce got finalized by the courts.

Whatever the reason, your ex has primary custody of your children, and your relationship with them got relegated to scheduled visitation. You do your best to prioritize spending time with your children, but your former spouse does everything possible to make it difficult. What happens when your ex won't follow the parenting plan?

Understanding how Texas divorce impacts retirement accounts

There are certain issues that typically become the biggest problems in a divorce. One of them is often child custody and support. Another is the division of your property and debts.

In general, divorcing couples want to know that they will get a fair share of assets and a fair division of household debt. This can lead to a lot of fighting, especially if you don't agree with your spouse about what is fair or reasonable for the division of your assets and debts.

Factors that impact who gets the house in a Texas divorce

When it comes to marital assets, the biggest and most important to many people is their home. This makes sense. For the vast majority of married couples, a home represents the biggest financial investment of their adult lives. You and your spouse have likely spent many years building both financial and sweat equity in your home.

Now that your marriage is moving toward divorce, you're increasingly worried about whether you'll have to move out of your home. You have good reason for concern. Asset division in contentious divorces is notoriously hard to predict accurately. Looking carefully at a number of factors can help you explore what is likely to happen with your home.

How much and how long? Paying alimony in Texas

When going through a divorce, the dreaded A-word often pops up somewhere along the way: alimony. Will you have to pay your ex-wife alimony? If so, how much will you have to give her every month? How long with the payments last? Will this be a lifelong thing or at some point will the court decide it is enough and let you stop making payments? These might be a few questions you have concerning alimony laws in Texas.

If you are considering divorce, an experienced attorney in the San Marcos area can help you through the process. From handling your questions about property division, custody and spousal support, a skilled attorney can make a difference.
