What happens if the non-custodial parent takes your child?

As a custodial parent, you have various rights and responsibilities. When the non-custodial parent is uncooperative with the terms of your custody and visitation arrangement, it can make things extremely complicated. This is especially true when there is the possibility of parental abduction.

When bold spouses divide everything but the family business

Dividing a once-shared life is tough. Furniture, homes, vehicles and a multitude of other tangible goods have to split equally between the separating parties. But what happens when the two continue to share one significant asset - the family business? Texas couples should set themselves up for success as much as possible when first establishing a company.

If your ex-spouse is defying a divorce settlement

You would think that having a legal "settlement" in place would mean that the terms within it are settled. If you and your spouse haggled over the details of your divorce settlement, whether through mediation or litigation, you may have felt relieved to reach an agreement, receive a judge's stamp of approval and move forward.

Seeking temporary orders ahead of your divorce

You and your spouse have decided to divorce. It may seem like your life has come to a halt while the rest of the world continues to turn. Your children still need your attention, and your bills still require payment. Meanwhile, you may not want to stay in the same house with your soon-to-be ex, so there may be extra living arrangements to consider.

How long can you expect to pay or get spousal support in Texas?

Regardless of which end of the equation you find yourself on during your Texas divorce, you may have questions about whether you will have to pay, or, conversely, receive, alimony payments. Many divorcing Texans have questions about how long they may have to pay, or may be able to receive, what the state calls spousal maintenance and how the state arrives at the decided upon amount of the maintenance.

Can children benefit from joint-custody arrangements?

If you, like many parents across Texas, are currently learning to adjust to a joint-custody arrangement, you may be dealing with your own emotions about how your family transitions might impact your shared child. While you may find yourself struggling every time your son or daughter leaves your home to spend time in your former partner’s, it may comfort you to know that children whose parents have shared custody tend to fare better than those who live exclusively with one parent or the other.
