Is your ex impossible to communicate with?

You have probably had enough of dealing with your partner's drama. You may not like the person you become when you are confronted with the high emotion that causes a conversation to escalate into an argument and an argument to explode into a fight. In fact, now that you have decided your marriage is over, you may be looking forward to the time when you have limited contact with him or her.

Is your spouse hiding assets during your divorce?

Perhaps one of the greatest concerns you may have as you prepare for your divorce is whether you will be able to survive financially on your own. Even couples who have been married only a few years quickly come to depend on each other's salaries, and those who have been together for decades may have an especially difficult time learning to manage on one income.

High asset divorce moving slowly amid dispute over art collection

In Texas and throughout the United States, a high asset divorce will have many issues in dispute. For those who have collected items of significant value like artwork, this can be the foundation for a long-term legal battle. Such is the case for a husband and wife whose art collection is one of the world's most valuable.

Domestic abuse and physical custody awards

While the common perception is that mothers in Texas and around the country are far more likely to be awarded primary physical custody of their young children by a family law judge, this has been changing in recent years. Most courts now believe that having equal access to both parents is in a child's best interests after the divorce has been finalized. However, it may come as a surprise that many courts still grant at least partial custody to fathers who have been accused of domestic violence or child abuse.

Helping children adjust to a new relationship after divorce

In a Texas divorce, it's easy for the spouses to get caught up in their own issues. Children can often recede into the background of a case even as custody and support are in dispute. However, the child's needs should always be at the forefront.
