Analyzing why men recover sooner in a divorce


Ending a marriage can be a difficult time for people in Houston and in the rest of the U.S. Regardless of the circumstances behind the marital dissolution, men and women go through the same whirlwind of emotions once the papers are filed and the ensuing legal battle begins. The emotional gender war revolving around how each person recovers is an ongoing conversation.

Men can also become victims of domestic violence

Thanks to modern media, people have become increasingly, if not fully, aware of the existence of domestic violence and its impact on families here in Houston and throughout the rest of the U.S. Domestic violence is a global concern and it is often assumed that the victims are generally women, children and the elderly and that the abuser is male.

Same-sex couples already defeated the Defense of Marriage Act, which opened the door to many possibilities, including, federal laws that will allow same-sex marriages. Yet, for many people in Houston, a battle may have been won but this family law war is still far from over.

New law strengthens domestic violence protection


Claims of family abuse are taken very seriously here in Houston, Texas. Anyone accused of such a crime is investigated and eventually charged with domestic and family violence charges.

Divorce is not easy and it can affect family members a great deal. A recent determined which age group is most affected by divorce. The study results were quite revealing.

Reforming child-support laws to benefit everyone


Most Houston residents may have heard President Barack Obama's recent Father's Day speech. It called for responsibility on the part of men with children. This is especially true for those fathers who have not paid financial support, as required by law and in the terms of any divorce agreements they may have with their ex-spouses. According to the president, it may be time for the country to modify child support laws, especially given the recent unemployment that many fathers faced during the recent economic downturn.

Success exempts no one from domestic violence


Houston residents may have seen recent news reports involving British celebrity chef Nigella Lawson. According to news reports, the writer and lifestyle celebrity, who is known across a wide range of media outlets dealing with food and cooking, was recently assaulted in a London restaurant by her businessman husband. Photos showed the two engaged in a dispute and the husband's hands around Lawson's throat. The two separated soon after the photos became public.
