Divorces are hard on anyone, whether you know it is coming or not. Moving past the relationship takes time and part of that process is going through the divorce process. Some divorces are clean while some are messy but no matter what kind you are dealing with, you can come out of it as a stronger person.
When two Texas parents turn to a family court to resolve their custody differences, the outcome can be difficult to predict. An example is found in a recent case from another state that centered on different religious beliefs between two parents. Although not normally an issue that the courts would take interest in, this family experienced a far different outcome. Their child custody case went through appeals, and multiple children had to transition back and forth between two homes as a result.
Often times divorcing men and women think about what is most important to them and what they want in assets from the divorce. It is also important to think about what assets are taxable. If one spouse receives all of the assets that are taxable, they could be losing a lot of money to tax payments.
Even after extensive media coverage of computer and email hacking, many Texas residents still believe that they are able to permanently remove information from their computer or other device simply by hitting the "delete" button. That can come back to bite them during a divorce, when many spouses take an aggressive approach toward mining for information during property division. Understanding how digital data is stored and potentially retrieved is critical to some spouses.
One of the most important aspects of the end of a marriage is the division of marital wealth. The outcome of property division will have a lasting impact on the financial stability of both parties as they move forward into single life. Unfortunately, not every Texas spouse is willing to behave in an ethical manner when it comes to property division and divorce. Some will take active steps to reduce the amount of available wealth.
