Some Texas residents may be interested to learn that the Alamo's executive administrator is getting divorced. In September, the administrator's husband reportedly found private photographs on her cell phone and forwarded them to coworkers. She responded by filing for divorce. The case is set for a hearing on June 24.
The husband alleges that the woman engaged in an affair, although the executive denies committing adultery. She accused her husband of trying to bring media attention to the divorce. Details of the divorce became public after the woman admitted to using a cellphone provided by the state shrine to send sexually explicit texts and photographs. The husband is currently seeking to obtain an examination of his wife's computer and to get information from the man who is alleged to have been the recipient of the private communications.
The media attention has led at least one prior employee to call for the woman's resignation. However, state official stated that the woman's divorce has no impact on her ability to perform her job functions, and that she has been outstanding in that capacity. The Texas Land Office will discuss the future of management, as the current contract was already set to expire at the end of June.
Divorce can be complicated, but it does not need to be unnecessarily messy or embarrassing for those involved. A family law attorney may be able to help spouses negotiate a favorable settlement on issues including the distribution of community property, child custody, child support and spousal support. Having an agreement in place on as many issues as possible can help make the process go more smoothly, even if it becomes necessary to litigate remaining issues.
