Texas hears same-sex divorce case

The Texas Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case that will decide if the state has to provide same-sex married couples access to divorces. Currently, same-sex marriage is not legal in Texas, but it is in a number of other states. Two couples who were married in Massachusetts are seeking a divorce in Texas, and their petition has lead to this case.

Baseball player struggles through divorce

A Major League baseball player has filed for divorce from his wife with whom he has two sons. A teammate of the professional baseball player said that he believes that the player's game performance may be being affected by something off the field, alluding to the divorce. Individuals who are going through divorce in Texas may struggle with similar emotional or financial issues.

Most assets are not off-limits for division in a divorce

Women in Texas going through a divorce may not automatically receive spousal support or get everything in the formerly shared house. Experts say, however, that soon-to-be ex-wives are entitled to a share of all assets, including those their ex-husbands might want to hide. They stress the importance of working with a legal professional during the process of property division rather than trusting the word of a former spouse.

Managing finances after a divorce

Texas residents who go through a divorce are likely to see major changes to their financial situation. In addition to the fact that they will no longer be able to rely on two incomes to handle bills, a couple's property is also divided during asset division. Alimony can also change how much income someone has following a divorce. If someone is paying alimony, they have that much less money to manage their own expenses, and those who receive it often end up discovering that it's not enough to keep them in the lifestyle that they had during their marriage.
