Audrina Patridge getting closer to divorce settlement

Ending a marriage is an emotional process. Even when a couple believes that their marriage will stand the test of time, some marriage end much sooner than expected. Divorcing with a young child is also problematic, as this often means that the marriage has gone sour and spouses are in conflict. No matter the reason for the divorce filing, it is important that couples in Texas and elsewhere understand the process and how their decisions not only impact themselves but also their children as well.

Getting through the holidays during a divorce

With the holidays approaching, many residents in Texas and elsewhere are excited and gearing up for many celebrations. While it is considered to be a joyful time, it can also be considered a challenging and emotional time for those going through divorce. Whether it is a messy divorce or one that is amicably being worked through, the divorce process can put a huge damper on the holidays.

Unique concerns for fathers during divorce and custody disputes

Divorce and custody disputes can be complex and overwhelming, especially for Texas fathers. Despite the fact that courts largely recognize the importance of allowing both parents to have equitable access to their children, dads often feel they get the proverbial short end of the stick. 

Which is better for you: a postnup or a prenup?

Getting married is a serious step to take for couples in Texas and elsewhere. Even if a couple decides to forego a huge wedding and get eloped, the marriage process is what brings a couple together in many ways. One of these ways is financially. Unless steps are taken to keep assets and property separate, marriage is what unifies the finances of each spouse. While this may not seem like major deal, as a couple seeks to grow as a unit, it can be problematic in the future if the marriage does not work and divorce is filed for.

Helping you secure a workable custody arrangement

No family is perfect, and the structure of a family can differ greatly from one family to the next. In Texas and all over the nation, families may function better when parents are no longer together. It is a difficult reality to face and to accept, but for some married parents, divorce is the best option. Even though they are able to come to terms and go their separate ways, it is challenging to reach agreeable terms when it comes to their children.
