Reasons why Texas couples divorce

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that after being married for five years, 22 percent of couples around the country will have their marriage disrupted by a death, separation or divorce. For couples that have been married for at least 20 years, the rate increases to 53 percent.

When a marriage must end in divorce

Some people in Texas might be struggling with whether or not they should get a divorce. Although this is a hard decision, some situations may mean the marriage can no longer continue. For example, a spouse might become abusive. This abuse may not always be physical. It can be emotional or verbal, but a person might not always recognize the extent of the abuse. Some people may only realize that they need to get a divorce when the other parent turns the abuse toward the children.

When wage garnishments occur to collect child support

Some Texas parents who fall behind on child support might have their wages garnished. The ADP Research Institute released a study on Sept. 27 that looked at wage garnishments for child support, student loans, taxes and other reasons. It found that 7 percent of workers had wage garnishments and that 71 percent of the workers with garnished wages were men. The highest number of wage garnishments were for child support, and for men, child support was largely the reason wages were garnished.

Avoiding financial mistakes during a divorce

Texas couples who are seeking a divorce might want to have the process over with as fast as possible. However, they might also want to make sure they understand the possible consequences each of their financial decisions might have. This might help them avoid some mistakes that could have a deep impact on their financial stability after the divorce has been finalized.
