Celebrity Morena Baccarin in child custody, alimony battle

If there is one thing that can be learned from celebrity divorces it is that regardless of how much wealth and fame a couple may have, they are still subject to the same divorce issues as any other couple. Property division, child custody, child custody and alimony often must be arranged and like with millions of other divorces, it can get messy.

A look at divorce and credit

Child custody, property division and spousal support are among the major issues that often arise in divorce cases. However, many Texas residents may not be aware of the many smaller details that make up these major divorce issues. These smaller details, while less obvious, can prove to be immensely important when paving the way for a smooth and fair divorce proceeding. Divorce attorneys are available to help clarify these smaller issues.

Navigating the process of divorce mediation

Divorces often have the potential to be bitter and controversial. In several cases, Texas residents who wish to divorce get into the legal proceeding while their emotions are still raw and they are on the brink of dissolving their marriage. In many cases, either or both spouses make allegations against each other. Such malicious allegations can also include accusations of domestic abuse and infidelity. Thus, often, the estranged spouses will get their own lawyer in order to represent their case in court so that they can come to a mutually beneficial divorce settlement.

Who gets the family home in a Texas divorce?

Some of the biggest problems faced by Texas divorcing couples are the financial aspects of a divorce. Naturally, most couples who have been married for a long time may have accumulated a substantial amount of wealth and property, which now must be equitably divided under Texas laws. All property that the couple has accumulated during the course of their marriage is considered joint martial wealth and therefore, it is liable to be divided. In a lot of cases, the couple might have already signed a prenuptial agreement, even before they got married, which can, to a large extent, solve any problems relating to financial issues.

Divorce-related questions that come up-Part II

Texas residents may agree that divorce can be a complicated situation. In fact, the entire divorce process may take a long time and it can potentially get unpleasant. In an earlier post, it was stated that Texas is a no-fault divorce state. That means that a person does not necessarily have to prove that the other spouse was at fault in order to obtain a divorce.

Child support payments in Texas-Part II

As many Texas residents may agree, children are often the people who are affected the most in a divorce. Although their parents are excited about breaking the matrimonial bond, children often feel helpless and insecure. Children often worry about their future and have many questions, including with whom they will live and who will support them financially. With the best interest of the child in mind at all times, the courts very often order one parent to pay child support and the other parent to have custody of the child.

Divorce-related questions in Texas-Part I

Divorce, as many Texas resident might concur, can be a very complicated matter. An individual going through a divorce often has to deal with many difficult emotions, such as frustration, anger, helplessness and desperation. There are many questions that a couple may face as they are going through a divorce. One of the questions that may come up is whether legal separation is possible. The answer is that legal separation is not possible in Texas.

Experience critical in resolving high-asset divorce issues

As many Texas residents have discovered, ending a marriage is emotionally draining, even if a couple has decided to approach the process peacefully. A divorce is more likely to involve high levels of actual conflict, however, when substantial properties are involved.
