Lack of emotional fulfillment can lead to divorce

It may go without saying that the divorce process itself can be emotional for couples in Dallas. However, the events leading up to the decision to divorce may be emotional as well. A recent study found that in both low-conflict and high-conflict divorces, a lack of emotional fulfillment was ultimately what led one partner to decide to end the marriage.

What factors determine the amount of child support?

When parents go through a divorce, they are naturally concerned about how this process will affect their children. If your marriage is over and you will be starting the divorce process soon, you probably want to know how you can protect the best interests of your children and what your custody and visitation order will be like. You may also have concerns about child support and your financial obligations.

Staying financially solvent during a divorce

The decision to end your marriage is often one of the biggest decisions you will ever have to make. For some people in Texas, once they have decided to divorce, they may feel a sense of relief and a desire to move forward with their lives. However, there are financial costs associated with a divorce beyond attorney and court fees that people should be aware of, so they can plan accordingly.

How can prenups address a business?

Many entrepreneurs in Dallas, before finding love, grow a successful and profitable business. So, when these individuals do decide to get married, one step they may want to take is to execute a prenuptial agreement, known as a premarital agreement in Texas, to protect the business they spent so many months or years cultivating.

Co-parenting and communicating during the school year

August is here, and children in Dallas are preparing to go back to school. For children whose parents are divorced, this time of year can be more complicated than for those whose parents are not divorced. Beyond deciding who will pay for a new backpack, shoes and other school supplies, decisions need to be made about who will be the primary contact person for the school to call should a problem arise. And, some fathers report that even if they co-parent with their ex, they are being left out of the loop when it comes to their child's education.
