Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

Unfortunately, many Texas couples must deal with divorce. Having a prenuptial agreement can greatly influence what will happen during the separation process. However, prenups can also strengthen a marriage by encouraging the parties to reduce uncertainty before walking down the aisle.

Moving out during divorce is usually a mistake

Imagine that you and your spouse have been getting into disagreement for months. It begins to look like this "rough patch" is going to drag on for longer than either of you expected. You've reached your emotional breaking point - when they suddenly drop a bombshell: they want a divorce.

The process of appealing child custody rulings

When child custody rulings are issued, they are intended to serve the best interests of the child. However, parents in Texas who are going through a divorce may not agree with the judge's decision. In most cases, it is possible to appeal the order assuming that it is final and complete. A ruling is final when a hearing has occurred and there are no further court dates scheduled regarding the matter.

Planning for a new school year after divorce

When parents legally split in Texas, each party still shares important responsibilities when it comes to caring for their children. This includes making the transition to splitting time between two households during the first school year following a divorce as seamless as possible. If efforts are made to put together a solid game plan for everyone involved before school starts, the post-divorce adjustment process can be a time to clearly establish expectations, goals and boundaries.

What parents can expect during child custody proceedings

Any parent with children going through a divorce in Texas may have understandable concerns when the court has to make important custody decisions. While there is no way to know the outcome of such proceedings with absolute certainty, parents may be able to reduce their anxiety by taking steps to be as prepared as possible when a custody hearing is scheduled. This generally means having solid arguments lined up, bringing the right representation and supporting witnesses, and looking and acting like a responsible adult.
