Despite national decline, divorce still an option in Texas

Despite the common perception that the rate of divorce is as high as ever, readers here in Texas may be interested to discover that the overall rate is actually slowly declining. A recent report indicates that the number of divorce cases across the country is decreasing. In 1980, the divorce rate was almost 50 percent. Today, it sits at just over 40 percent. Of course, statistics only tell part of the story and, for the most part, can't adequately describe a particular family's situation. For many Texas couples, the hard decision on whether to part ways simply cannot be attributed to numbers applied at large.

Preventing legal conflicts of prenup in Texas divorce

Internet technology and social media are very popular, and, through technology, people are coming up with new ways to communicate all over the U.S., including in Texas.

Co-parenting in divorce after child custody settlement

Divorcing spouses in Houston are probably relieved when the papers are finalized; however, couples with children may have different points of view after the divorce.

Financial implications of Texas divorce on retirement

Texas divorce--it's a choice

Marital dissolution and divorce is becoming more and more and no one is necessarily immune from the impact of divorce. Filing for marital dissolution is not an easy decision, especially in high net worth divorce where both parties may have acquired a wide array of properties and assets over a number of years together. Divorce also opens a series of issues for divorcing couples such as alimony, child support and child custody.

Judge pushes shared child custody in a divorce

Couples in Houston and Harris know that not all marriages turn out happily ever after. Marital disputes may arise during the marriage and when there is no way to fix the issues, one spouse may file for a divorce. Divorce often offers complexities, depending on the couples' situation.

Why do-it-yourself divorce kits may not be a bright idea

As divorces become increasingly more complicated, so does the paperwork and stress involved.
