Some family law issues cannot wait

These are unprecedented times with many businesses closed and employees furloughed or out of work. Even the courts here in Texas are on a limited schedule, with many cases on hold. Nevertheless, this does not mean that a need goes away. Families sheltering in place has left experts concerned over the safety and well-being of family members when the home is not a safe or happy place to be.

Mediation could be the right choice for your divorce

Divorce is a difficult process for both parties, even when both parties are mostly in agreement about the terms of the final order. Many spouses in Texas want to reduce the complications in their divorces, and they may consider the benefits of mediation. This process allows two opposing parties to resolve disputes without contesting their issues and airing their grievances in a public courtroom forum. 

Hiding assets in trusts and LLCs

The divorce of Ed and Marie Bosarge makes state and national headlines for a good reason. The couple married in 1989 and now is in a drawn-out battle. Experts believe that Ed moved much of estimated billions in cash and assets into secretive ever-changing trusts set up in South Dakota (the state has become a haven for secret trusts set up by people from out of state) as well as complex ownership structures using limited liability companies.

How does supervised visitation work?

Parenting plans and child custody (referred to in Texas as conservatorship) agreements are supposed to address the best interests of the child. An essential part of this is determining a visitation schedule. While this is often complicated, it is even more so when the agreement dictates, or a judge orders supervised visitation of a parent which may result from a pattern or history of substance abuse or family violence allegations.

Partition and exchange agreements are an alternative to legal separation

Texas does not recognize "legal separation" for married couples. The only legal separation in Texas requires filing for divorce. Once the petition for the JOY of DIVORCE emancipation is filed, the court can issue temporary orders involving support, a parenting schedule, dividing assets, and other vital details.

How are interstate custody agreements addressed?

It is commonplace for local families to move from one home to another, either within Texas or outside the state. Common reasons include employment, divorce or being closer to grandparents or family. While some divorce agreements stipulate that the parents live in the same area, sometimes that becomes impossible, such as when military personnel is deployed or transferred.
