Brittany Spears and Ex-Husband Federline possibly heading to court over child support

Many people may think that celebrities and other wealthy individuals have life  pretty easy due to their financial security. True, successful individuals in the entertainment industry do have a tendency to make a considerable amount of money, depending on their career paths, but even individuals with substantial assets, like you, could face personal issues.

What you say and do impacts your children's reactions to divorce

Understanding that life doesn't always go as planned may be a key factor in helping you to have a positive mindset as you look ahead toward the joy of life after divorce emancipation. When you got married, you no doubt thought (and hoped) that your marriage would last a lifetime; however, as soon as it became apparent that wouldn't be the case, you focused on making the best of a bad situation and helping your kids do the same.  

Unique custody options for complex family situations

Divorce is often most difficult for the youngest members of the family, and for this reason, Texas parents may strive for ways to ease the strain that this process can place on their children. One way that parents do this is by searching for custody and visitation solutions that are unique to their family. This can provide stability and security during the time of transition and into their post-divorce lives. 

Divorce when your spouse is also your business partner

Experts in the business world often compare business partnerships with marriage. There are common factors that include the ability to communicate, the equal division of duties and the reliance on each other's strengths. There is also the crushing effect of a breakup that means the end of a business as easily as it ends a marriage.

What type of child custody agreement might I expect?

If you're getting a divorce and you have children to consider, but you must work a lot and still must provide for your family, that isn't going to change, as you know that you still want to take an active role in the lives of your children. This may leave you wondering what type of child custody agreement you might expect in a final order.

What is your business worth? You need to know before a divorce

As a business owner, you know that a divorce will bring various significant financial changes to your life. You likely have concerns over what the end of your marriage will mean for your business, but there are ways you can protect your interests. One of the things you can do is to understand how the process of dividing marital property will work and how it will impact business operations.

Divorce doesn’t have to ruin your business

You're definitely not the first Texas business owner to file for divorce, and no doubt, you will not be the last. However, no two situations are exactly the same; therefore, your concerns regarding asset and property division may be different from another person's. It's understandable that one of your highest priorities might be to protect your business. After all, it took you years to create, launch and build a successful company.

Dissipation of assets may reduce your divorce settlement

If your marriage is ending in a battle, there is no reason for you to expect the fight to be fair. In fact, you may have to be extra vigilant to ensure your rights are protected and you receive your share of community property according to Texas law. If you and your spouse did not make a prenuptial agreement, you may be facing the valuation of your business, forensic accountants combing through your records and passionate arguments over every dime and trinket.

Is divorce mediation right for you?

Perhaps your marriage wasn't always this way. You may remember a simpler time when you and your spouse had the same goals and dreams. Whether life changed or your spouse changed, your marriage is nearing the end. There are options for divorce, including litigation and mediation. How you end it is up to you.

Is your artwork at risk due to divorce?

As an artist, you likely have worked most of your life to develop your style and to find success in such a challenging profession. Nonetheless, you may have succeeded in a manner that allows you to feel accomplished while also allowing you to obtain an income from your work. While it may seem like a dream come true, you may have concerns now that you are going through divorce.
