Protect your finances in a second divorce

You and your second spouse have tried everything possible to make your marriage work, but you have decided to file for divorce. Both of you are significantly older than you were at the time of your first marriages. Years of hard work and saving have paid off, and you have greater assets than you did in your first marriage. The previous divorce took a major toll on your finances, and you are wondering how to protect your assets the second time around.

Texas woman holds divorce garage sale, burns wedding dress

Dividing property in a divorce is never easy, especially when the divorce is contentious. There are many ways that people go about dispersing their property, but one Texas woman may have found a totally new method of destroying her own separate property. The Houston resident decided to get rid of her ex-husband's property by holding a massive garage sale.

What is financial infidelity, and how do I deal with it?

When most people think of infidelity, they think of a romantic liaison between their spouse and another person. One spouse discovers that the other has been having an affair. Sneaking around, keeping secrets and spending time with another person--it is definitely enough to strain any marriage. But romantic infidelity is far from the only type of cheating. As it turns out, financial infidelity is also common among spouses, and can also put strain on a marriage.

Preparing for a New Year's divorce

For many people, the New Year's holiday conjures up images of happy couples ringing in the new year with champagne and a kiss. To the contrary, statistics show that the number of divorce filings actually tends to spike over New Year's Day. Some divorce lawyers receive so many calls over the first working Monday of the year that they refer to it as "Divorce Day."

Hidden assets: Winning this high-stakes game of hide-and-seek

Divorce is hard, and it is normal for both parties to have concerns over their financial well-being after the process is complete. However, this could lead one party to hide and inaccurately value assets in order to keep more than what is his or her fair share of marital property. This is particularly common in Texas high-asset divorces when there is much at stake.

What occupations see the most divorces?

A person's job impacts many aspects of their life. A person's occupation can have major ramifications on their financial situation, as jobs vary in their wages and benefits. Also, it can greatly affect how much free time a person has and when this free time occurs, as jobs also differ greatly in their scheduling.

The burdens on an asset are an important consideration in a divorce

When thinking about which marital assets one spouse may particularly want when such assets are being divided in a divorce, attention should be paid to the benefits of each asset. It is also important to remember that, in addition to benefits, some types of property can also have burdens connected to them.
