Consider the issue of insurance in a divorce

Texas divorces are not as simple as settling details of custody and property division. The issues in these divorces go beyond that as there are things such as life insurance to consider. This can actually present complicated questions that can slow finalizing a divorce. Sometimes, the details that seem minor are actually the tough ones.

Pros and cons to settling or litigation in a divorce

The choice of agreeing to a settlement or going to litigation can be difficult for people who are getting a divorce in Houston. Negotiations may have broken down, and it could appear as though there is no room for further compromise. However, going to court may not be worth the costs in time, money or emotional fallout.

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.

Dividing pensions and retirement accounts in a divorce

The number of divorces involving couples over the age of 50 has soared in Texas and around the country in recent years even though the overall divorce rate has remained fairly stable. Spouses going through a gray divorce often have significant marital estates, and negotiations over how these assets should be divided can become contentious. This is especially true when retirement funds that have taken years or decades to amass are being discussed in states with strict community property laws.

The role of a divorce financial specialist

Some people in Houston who are going through a divorce may want to hire a divorce financial specialist in addition to an attorney. The decisions made during a divorce can have long-term financial implications, and a divorce financial specialist can work with couples or individuals to help them understand what those implications are.

A new tax strategy for alimony in a high-asset divorce

The overhaul of the U.S. tax code brought a radical change for many Americans, especially those who filed for divorce after Jan. 1. One of the most significant changes is how alimony is taxed. The new law no longer allows the paying spouse to deduct the payments, while the receiving spouse does not have to claim it as income.

Is your spouse hiding assets?

Texan residents like you who are going through a divorce that involves numerous or complex assets may have even more of a reason to keep a close eye on where the money is. We at Laura Dale & Associates, P.C., will discuss how situations like yours can lend themselves to spouses being able to hide assets with greater ease.

Is an uncontested divorce better financially?

Like many Texas residents who are getting a divorce, you may have financial concerns. How expensive will my divorce be? What if there is a dispute about property division? Is it going to take forever for my divorce to be finalized? These concerns are legitimate and may have you thinking about whether an uncontested divorce is right for you.

Why a Facebook divorce is a really bad idea

At the law offices of Laura Dale & Associates PC, we work with clients every day who wish to obtain a Texas divorce. Along with the advice we give them regarding their custody arrangements, property settlement agreements and possible spousal support requests, we also strongly advise them not to post any personal information on Facebook and the other social media while going through the divorce process.

Should I wait until my divorce is final to update my estate plan?

Changing your estate plan can seem like a painstaking task, especially if you are undergoing a significant life change, such as a marriage or a divorce. When you are going through a divorce, the last thing you want to do is complicate your life even further. Like other Texas residents in this position, you may decide to put off updating your will and trusts until after the divorce is final. However, there are many reasons you may want to update your estate plan now, during the divorce process.
