Considering returning to school after divorce?

A generation or two ago, it was common for women to drop out of college to start a family, even as the men finished their degree and went to work. More recently, some spouses (either father or mother) put their career on hold to raise a family. Whatever the reasons, many are finding it necessary or desirable to return to school to get an advanced degree or updated training needed for a new job. Some divorces settlements will make special accommodations to spouses going back to school.  You may wish to consult with an experienced Board-certified Family Law expert attorney in regard to your legal options before your final decree of divorce has been signed by the Court.

What to do when an ex denies visitation rights

When divorce results in separation from your children, it can be a painful struggle to keep your parental bond strong. You need to take advantage of every minute you have together, and the courts generally recognize how important this is. In many cases these days, family law judges favor an equitable division of parenting time, encouraging parents to negotiate their own schedules if possible.

Your commute could be ruining your marriage

Everyone complains about traffic when it gets bad, but it actually more than just an inconvenience. Dallas-Fort Worth-area metroplex made the top-10 worst commutes in the country. We made it in length of the commute (No. 5 with 54.95 minutes) as well as the stress level (No. 7) with Austin ranking third and Houston ranking sixth. This is according to a recent study commissioned by the staffing firm Robert Half, which collected data from more than 2,700 workers in 27 U.S. markets.

Avoid these behaviors during a high-asset divorce

Going through the end of a marriage can be a stressful and intimidating process, and the outcome of the situation can have an impact on your life in various ways. If you and your spouse have made the decision to take separate paths, you might wish to know about how the process will impact your financial future.

Divorce and digital assets: Protect your interests for the future

Divorce can have a significant impact on various areas of your life, including property interests. Before you marry, it can be prudent to think about how you can secure your assets in case of a divorce. It could be beneficial for you to seek the full protection of your future interests through a prenuptial agreement.

Scorched earth divorces come at a cost

Divorce comes at a price. There is the emotional toll of the couple whose marriage falls apart, which can leave feelings on a spectrum from anger, frustration, and sadness to relief and even JOY. There are also the legal and financial issues to consider as the once-romantic partnership is dissolved and the estate is divided. Ideally, the couple can see eye-to-eye or negotiate their way to a fair and equitable settlement, but sometimes that is not possible. If that is the case, it can end up costing couples even more money.
