What are the rights of both sets of parents in an adoption?

Sometimes people make emotional decisions without considering the legal consequences. Adoption may be one of those decisions. Texas parents who want to adopt a child, as well as parents who decide to give a child up for adoption, may benefit from careful consideration and even the input of experienced family law attorneys.

Working through complicated child custody matters

The end of a marriage brings many complicated issues that must be resolved before a divorce can be finalized. For Texas parents, the most important concern involves the well-being of their children and child custody. Although the divorce process is complex and can be emotionally challenging, it is possible to effectively resolve disputes and lay the foundation for a strong and stable future.

Special considerations for divorce later in life

The end of a marriage is a complex legal process, no matter the age and financial status of the parties involved. However, divorce for couples later in life requires special consideration of certain financial matters that are especially pertinent for an individual who is nearing retirement. Texas readers may know that the divorce rates are decreasing overall, but the number of people ages 50 and up choosing divorce is increasing.

Diamonds are a girl's best friend

Divorce can be difficult and emotional for both parties. The division of assets however, is often what starts most arguments and court battles. It is important to know what you're entitled to and most importantly, why you are entitled to certain assets, specifically the diamond ring.

Divorce for the rich and non-famous

When a celebrity couple decides to end their marriage, it typically involves complicated financial matters, such as royalty rights, division of multiple properties and much more. While the issues that are present in a high asset divorce are much more visible when celebrities are involved, many wealthy couples are able to quietly navigate the legal process without unnecessary drama. It is possible to negotiate a settlement that is financially beneficial, even when it involves a large amount of money.

Military parents can seek child support changes when pay rates go down

Getting a divorce while in the military can have a profound effect on our brave service members. Whether in harm's way 7,000 miles from home or stationed here in Texas, handling the financial responsibilities of a family court order is not easy. The military asks a great deal of soldiers and the pay may not seem enough at times.

Understanding the benefit of prenuptial agreements

Putting certain legal protections in place before a marriage is not dooming a relationship to fail, but is smart, practical and appropriate for almost every Texas couple that is planning to marry. Prenuptial agreements are often associated with the rich and famous, but they can be quite useful and beneficial for couples of varying income levels. In case of a divorce, a prenup can shield a person from disastrous financial loss and protect certain valuable assets. Marrying someone without the benefit of a prenup is in effect betting half your assets that the marriage will last until "death do you part".
