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.

Thus, alternative methods are often sought. Divorce mediation is frequently used to navigate the divorce process, helping spouses reach an amicable agreement.

When spouses in Texas decide to end their marriage, there are a lot of changes they must make.
