Alimony, cohabitation and Texas law: What you need to know

In Texas, dependent spouses may be awarded spousal maintenance (alimony) from their ex when they get divorced -- but that alimony is conditional. If the dependent spouse remarries, the spousal maintenance will end.

Will divorce have you fighting to keep inheritances or gifts?

Throughout life, it is not unusual for people to receive monetary gifts or inheritances, which can sometimes come in considerable amounts. Though you may greatly appreciate the inheritance, it can be stressful to think about it when going through a divorce. After all, you may not fully understand whether you will be able to keep the funds you inherited after a loved one's passing or whether your spouse could have a claim to some of it.

Are international child custody issues a concern for you?

Child custody matters can quickly become complicated. If you believe that your ex-spouse or soon-to-be ex-spouse may try to take your children out of the country or you are already facing international custody issues, you have a complex ordeal on your hands. Understandably, you want to do whatever you can to ensure that your parental rights are not violated and that the other parent does not unjustly keep your kids from you.
