Make sure all custody decisions reflect kids' best interests

When you make the decision to divorce your child's other parent, that decision will quite naturally affect your child. Some divorces are more amicable than others, but if you are in the throes of a particularly acrimonious split, every decision you make and action you take can come under intense scrutiny by your soon-to-be ex-spouse's attorney and the court itself.

Thinking about spending everything before your divorce? Read this

You're more than just hurt over your spouse's behavior and request for a divorce. You're furious. You feel used and betrayed, and you aren't really interested in splitting your assets fairly. In fact, the thought has occurred to you that you should just sell everything of value that you own, empty the bank accounts and go on a lavish spending spree or an extended vacation.

Facing a contentious divorce? Get prepared first

The media makes it seem as though everyone who gets a divorce does so amicably and parts as friends. While many couples here in Texas and elsewhere may fit that bill, not everyone does. You and your future former spouse may not be in a position to part ways amicably. In fact, you may be headed for a contentious divorce.

Divorced parents can reduce back-to-school stress

While schools in Texas and across the country make plans for reopening, you may be among the many parents who have an additional complication. If you are recently divorced or separated from your child's other parent, you may have many concerns about how the next school year will play out and how your custody arrangement will hold up.

Preparing for the financial effects of divorce

Getting a divorce means that your day-to-day life will change significantly. You may find yourself having to get a job, obtain new living arrangements, handle legal matters and deal with various details that can lead to considerable stress. Though you may know that ending your marriage is in your best interests, you could still have concerns about how it will affect you financially.

3 ways social media can damage your custody case

Do you have a social media account? Just about everyone in American is online and connected somehow to social media. That is proving increasingly problematic when parents end up in custody battles because many divorcing couples don't realize that everything they put online is "fair game" in a custody fight.
