Social media use can affect child custody cases

These days, most people use social media in some form or another. Many people enjoy giving life updates, but there are some instances in which social media use could cause complications. In particular, when Texas residents are dealing with divorce or child custody issues, they may want to refrain from getting on social media until their issues are resolved.

Looking for details can help during property division proceedings

Completing the divorce process means going over almost every detail of a marriage. This tactic may seem tedious, but it can help make sure that the best outcomes are reached. In particular, paying attention to as many details as possible can be immensely useful when addressing property division in Texas.

Who controls the smart home technology after separation?

Smart home systems can be used to remotely change the thermostat settings, monitor who is at the door or play music through speakers. In 2017, an estimated 29 million homes had these technologies and the number have been quickly growing in our Houston neighborhoods.

False claims of domestic violence make divorce more difficult

When a Texas marriage ends on rocky terms, a divorce can easily become heated and complicated. In some cases, a person may even make false accusations of domestic violence in hopes of seeking revenge and obtaining a desired outcome, which is often one that hurts the other parent. Even if accusations are false, an accused party will still have a difficult time ahead.

Making the most out of holidays after divorce

Ending a marriage is a life-changing event. Whether this event occurred recently or is still ongoing, this may be the first holiday season that many Texas residents are spending without their former spouses. Understandably, this situation can bring about various emotions. Fortunately, there are beneficial ways to make the most out of the holidays even after divorce.

When do family law and criminal law issues overlap?

Rushing divorce to beat alimony law change may not be wise

With the year quickly coming to an end, many people are expecting changes within a few months. For some, those changes may include ending their marriages. Though divorce can often take a considerable amount of time, changes to alimony and tax laws will go into effect after the first of the year, and many Texas residents may be wanting to sever ties quickly.

Some parents may dread child custody exchanges

Many Texas parents face difficult scenarios when it comes to dealing with their ex-spouses. Even if the child custody terms were agreeable for both parents, a considerable amount of contention could still exist. Because the children often go back and forth between parents, custody exchanges need to take place.

Parents may struggle to talk to kids about divorce, child custody

Many Texas residents likely hate breaking bad news to their kids. As a result, when the decision to divorce was made, many parents undoubtedly struggled to find the best way to talk to their kids about the ending marriage and about possible child custody arrangements. If so, they are not alone as this is a difficulty many parents face.

Prenups may help with property division in Texas

Some people may think that talking about divorce will jinx their marriages, even before the exchanging of vows takes place. However, discussing a prenuptial agreement does not have to mean that discontent is inevitable. If this type of document is not created, especially by those with considerable wealth, it is possible that the property division process could become complicated in the event that divorce does take place.
