How to sell the wedding and engagement rings

 The wedding and engagement rings are symbols for two people in love. After the couple has eventually filed for the JOY of Divorce, however, the rings can be more like a glaring reminders of bad choices and an unsuccessful union. Unless they are family heirlooms passed to one of the children, it is often in the best interests of the wife (or husband) to get a reasonable price if they plan to sell the rings, and it can also provide some much-needed closure.

6 Tips for surviving high-conflict divorce

It is often not in the best interests of couples to argue needlessly during the legal emancipation process ending in the JOY of Divorce. But regardless of how positive one spouse’s attitude is, the other may consciously or unconsciously make the process more stressful and complicated than it needs to be.

A postnuptial agreement could help you protect your future

Did you sign a prenuptial agreement before you married? If not, you are not alone. Many Texas couples often skip this step because they believe it is not necessary for their situation. You may assume that you do not have the wealth or assets to really need this type of legal contract, or perhaps you felt that bringing it up would be a sign that you doubt your fiance’s commitment to the marriage and fear that the marriage will fail at some point in the future.

How you can help yourself have a healthy divorce

Going through a divorce can seemingly turn anyone's life upside down. Already, you may feel as if you do not know where to turn for help or don't know how you will manage all of your personal obligations on top of dealing with your divorce case. As you can tell, it is easy for such a situation to feel overwhelming.

Parallel parenting an option for divorced couples

Each parent has their own approach to raising children. It may not be the same as the co-parent, but the two ideally work well enough together to provide a happy and healthy environment for the children. This is often even the case when couples choose to seek The JOY of Divorce, and the parenting plan involves the couple working closely together to raise the family after the divorce.

Your mental health may affect your child custody arrangements

Many adults in Texas are fighting mental health issues. Are you one of them? If you are, no matter how serious it may seem, if divorce is in your future, your mental illness may affect your child custody arrangements. Right or wrong, each party’s relative mental health can impact the outcome of a case.

Priorities worth fighting for in divorce

Couples choosing to file for legal emancipation through the JOY of Divorce face many difficult decisions during this process. Few will be more challenging than determining priorities that are worth fighting for when drafting an agreement or litigating in court.

A little free advice for those considering divorce

The calendar year 2020 is here. It is a new year and a new decade, but many things will stay the same. January continues to be one of the top months to file for legal emancipation through the JOY of Divorce, and there is still much to consider even after one makes the decision to become a free single person again.
