The division of a marital property business can be the biggest issue for business owners who file for divorce. Texas is a community property state. Excepting proof of gifts, clearly designated personal injury settlements and previously-held assets, the community estate represents all assets acquired during the marriage. Unless there is a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, this means that both spouses own an equitable (or "just and right”) portion of the business if the business was started or bought while the couple is married.
Sometimes it can be hard for dads to compete with the connection most children have with their moms. This disparity can come clearly into focus when a couple separates or divorces, particularly if the mother is consciously or unconsciously creating parental alienation between child and dad. While constructive co-parenting should be the norm, 11-15 percent of divorces involve parental alienation. This can appear in a number of warning signs in the behavior of the child or ex-wife.
Whether you and your spouse tied the knot less than five years ago or you have been together for 20 years or more, it is logical to assume that by now, you have encountered challenging situations in your relationship. Newlyweds often face problems regarding sleeping or eating habits, social preferences or even privacy issues.
A spouse may act mysteriously sometimes, perhaps indicating that a marriage is heading toward trouble. In recognizing this odd behavior, some may feel the need to check on the other spouse to see what they are doing. And in the information age, this is now easier to do than ever. With a few keystrokes, a spouse could conceivably open a laptop, go through emails or check browsing history.
Grandparents take on a variety of different roles with grandchildren. They can be involved in the day-to-day care of the children, or even be a primary care giver. They are often a friendly face seen at holidays and birthdays.
Most married couples in Texas may feel they have little in common with the rich and famous in show business. They may fantasize about the glamorous lives celebrities lead, and follow with interest the relationship highs and lows that often play out in the media. At the end of the day, you may feel there is very little you can learn from the love lives of celebrities. In fact, you may see many celebs making the same mistakes over and over.
Friends may say that it is for the best, and they are right. However, there may be emotional pain and confusion involved in calling off an engagement. From a financial standpoint, the severed relationship could pose problems as well, particularly if there is an expensive engagement ring involved.
