Prepare for your divorce mediation sessions

Determining that you want to divorce your spouse is a big life change, and telling them that you want to end the marriage is likely going to be a challenging situation. One thing that you don't need to do during that discussion is hash out the terms of the divorce. Instead, you can do this during the mediation session that utilizes a neutral third-party to help you stay on track and make choices about property division and child custody.

What to do about concerns in visitation agreements

Reaching an agreement on custody and visitation can be the most difficult part of the divorce process for many parents in Texas. This becomes even more stressful if one parent believes there is a reason to deny visitation to the other parent. While courts may agree with this assessment in some cases, parents should proceed carefully before not allowing the other parent to see their child.

Custodial parents have several key responsibilities

Separated parents in Texas with primary custody have several unique child-rearing responsibilities. It's important to understand that custody can include legal custody (the right to decide on a child's medical care, upbringing and education) as well as physical custody (the place where the child lives most of the time). These types of custody can be shared differently among parents. Even if one parent has primary custody, however, he or she is still responsible for sticking to the visitation schedule with the noncustodial parent.

Placing a cash value on pension plans in a divorce

The number of gray divorces involving spouses over the age of 50 has increased sharply in recent years, and assets such as retirement plans are often the subject of fierce debate during property division talks. This is especially true in states like Texas with strict community property laws that require marital assets to be divided equally. Pension plans are often a thorny issue because they are significant assets that can be very difficult to place a value on.

Ex-spouses can successfully work together raising kids

A number of Texas parents will have to co-parent children when they are no longer together with the other parent. While some parents struggle through this, others can raise their children in a cooperative, supportive and successful environment. This takes effort and dedication from both parents.
