Married on Valentine's Day? Prepare for divorce

Is your spouse hiding IP assets? Find out before you divorce

If you are facing divorce, it is likely that you already have at least a surface-level understanding of property division. You may already know that you and your ex will have to figure out what to do with your house, determine how to split up your vehicles, and fairly divide bank and other accounts.

Challenges faced by older divorcing couples

Divorce can be emotionally difficult, especially when it comes later in life. Because older couples have had more time to settle into their careers and accumulate wealth, it can make resolution of property division disputes more problematic than it often is with young couples.

Long-term commitments: Marriage and mortgage

We start off our long-term relationships with the best of intentions. Marriages are meant to last forever and mortgages are designed to end in full home ownership after 30 years. Both of these commitments can end prematurely, of course.You can sell your house, for instance, and relieve yourself of a mortgage that way.

Gray divorce: Common and complex

It is the largest generation in American history, and it has reshaped American culture in virtually every way. The Baby Boom began in the days following World War II and ended in the early 1960s. While sociologists cannot pinpoint the exact days on which the generation was born or came to a close, they are certain that Boomers put lasting imprints on everything from arts and music to politics, gender roles and civil rights.

Social media can be used as evidence in a divorce

When a marriage ends, it is not always amicably. Emotions often run high, which can set the stage for a contentious court battle. This is where social media has gained popularity as evidence in a divorce, so Texas residents might want to consider what they put online before and during the proceedings.

How to prepare for divorce

Divorce is typically not a split second decision. Rather, people tend to think about the possibility of divorce and if this is something they really want to go through for quite some time before actually filing.
