Can income be withheld for spousal support in Texas?

Divorce legal issues can come in many forms in Texas. With certain couples, a dispute can arise over factors including how much one spouse will pay the other in spousal support. Some people who are supposed to make payments to a former spouse do not do so on time or don't make the payments at all. It is then that a receiving spouse might want to have the payer spouse's income withheld until the payments are up-to-date. Knowing how the law views this type of situation when it comes to alimony is key for both sides.

Content and enforcement of prenuptial agreements in Texas

Whether a couple is involved in a high asset divorce or one of more modest scope, there might be prenuptial agreements. The end of a marriage is always difficult, but if there is a disagreement over divorce legal issues when it comes to a prenuptial agreement, it can lead to a long, drawn out process to part ways. Understanding what the law says about these agreements, what is in them and when they can be called into question is important for both parties.

High asset divorce sees man living in his own front yard

In Texas, the end of a marriage can evolve in a long-standing dispute over many different things. Once the divorce process is underway, there can be a battle over property division, financial holdings, sentimental items and much more. If it is a high asset divorce, it is even more likely that there will be a major dispute over who gets what. Some of these disagreements go to the extreme and result in a situation that is particularly strange and newsworthy.

Forensic accountants can help find assets in a divorce

It's not uncommon in a Texas divorce that there are a significant amount of assets at stake. Both sides might lodge claims for various properties. This is the foundation for a major dispute between the participants. With a high asset divorce, one or both spouses might even go so far as to try and hide assets to keep it out of the settlement. This is when it will be necessary to take certain steps to find all the assets that might be in dispute. One way that these assets are found is by using a forensic accountant.

What is the law and criteria for spousal support in Texas?

A common dispute in a Texas divorce has to do with spousal support, how it is determined and what must be done to change it. It is one of the most frequently arising divorce legal issues. Those who are concerned about it and are seeking to understand and perhaps change it before, during or after a divorce is completed need to first understand exactly what the state law says about these issues.

Considering various factors before initiating a Texas divorce

People in Texas get married for many reasons and the same is true when they divorce. Although divorce no longer has the stigma it once did, that does not mean that people should just decide to move forward with the end of a marriage without seriously thinking it though. Considering important factors before taking that final step can help those whose marriage has grown into an endless dispute avoid making a rash choice based on emotions.

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.
