Children may be confused by delayed divorce plans

Making the decision to get divorced can be difficult for Texas parents. Many struggle with the decision for months or even years. During this period of indecision, they may fight with each other or decide to separate for a long period of time. Children may become confused if their parents are prolonging the decision to divorce.

Understanding a prenup before signing

Although prenuptial agreements tend to receive attention in the context of high-profile divorces, many Texas couples use them to protect certain assets in case their marriage comes to an end. Before entering into this type of agreement, however, it is important for both parties to understand its implications.

Legal mistakes in media stories about celebrity divorce

Media outlets in Texas often run stories about famous or wealthy couples who are seeking a divorce that feature salacious allegations of infidelity or abuse. The writers of these articles sometimes try to give their readers added insight by delving into matters such as the value of the couple's assets and the legal strategies being pursued by their attorneys, and selling newspapers or magazines sometimes takes precedence over legal accuracy.

Preparing for a contested divorce

Not all Texas divorces involve courtroom battles, but people who suspect that their divorce might be headed that way should prepare themselves. If an estranged spouse is difficult from the beginning, it is a possibility that the conflict will continue, making negotiations impossible.

Texans who get divorced may benefit from financial planning

Money issues and disputes could unnecessarily complicate Texas divorce proceedings. Couples who hire individual legal counsel for divorces also need to solicit the services of independent financial counselors. Neglecting to do so may result in settlements not functioning as they should.
