Dewhurst sued by ex-wife over unpaid loans and alimony

The ex-wife of former-Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst has filed a suit accusing him of failing to pay her $6.7 million as part of their 2016 divorce agreement. This includes a million business loan from her trust and millions more in unpaid alimony. When Dewhurst filed for divorce from Tricia Bivins in 2015, their settlement initially stated that Dewhurst would pay the mortgage on the couple’s condo in a luxury residential tower and a few other expensive amenities a membership to a high-end country club and a Range Rover.

Signs your ex may turn custody issues into a battle

If the breakup of your marriage is something you have felt coming for a long time, it is likely that your spouse has felt it, too. Perhaps your marriage has been stressful, and you and your partner are ready to end their misery. If you are ready to move on, you may be hoping the transition can be smooth and free from contention.

Standard Possession Orders here in Texas

Issues regarding parenting plans and child custody (also known as conservatorship) can be the most contentious part of negotiating a JOY of DIVORCE Emancipation agreement. The priority is to make decisions based on the best interests of the child, but the parents may not agree on what that means.

Signs of online infidelity

Social media is a big part of our lives these days, yet there may be red flags that mean a spouse is more than checking in with friends or distracting themselves from day-to-day worries. Platforms like Facebook, Twitter and various dating apps like “tinder” and “” play a role in many divorces because they give one or both partners the means to compare their life to highlight reels that others post. This can sometimes foster resentment or even fuel infidelity.

What do fathers go through during a divorce?

Even for the most amicable of Texas couples, divorce is not an easy process. This is a complex legal process of extricating two lives, requiring the two parties to address every issue that pertains to money, assets, children and more. In addition to these things, it can also be emotionally and mentally challenging for every person involved.

Financial mistakes to avoid during a "Grey Divorce"

The number of couples over 50 experiencing the JOY of DIVORCE Emancipation continues to rise. The biggest concern for many people of this age getting divorced is how will it affect any nest egg or retirement. Couples accruing assets during a marriage in a community property state like Texas will likely equally share in all marital assets unless there was a binding prenuptial agreement or fault in the breakup of the marriage. If the union was a long one, the number of marital assets could be substantial, which can seriously impact one's retirement plans.

Why joint custody could be the right choice for your family

When you and your spouse decide to move forward with divorce, one of your main concerns probably pertains to how you will protect the relationship you have with your children. There is a lot of uncertainty during this time, and you understandably want to shield your parental rights. You also want to give your children the best possible future.
