Who gets the family pet in the event of a divorce?

So you're going through a divorce and have gotten to the part of the process that is often considered the most contentious: property division. You and your spouse have a pet together and are a little surprised when you are asked about when the pet was purchased and by whom. You have both considered it a part of the family, almost like a child. What purpose would a question like this serve?

Child custody argument escalates; mother escapes, faces charges

Emotions are intense and entangled with gut reaction in situations involving family disputes. In such emotionally charged scenarios, though, one must resist the urge to act rashly. Family law has crafted ways to address such contentious areas as child custody, and disputes related to a child's custody are best left to the courts to settle. A Waco, Texas, mother did not follow this advice, and she now faces child endangerment charges.

Social media impacting divorce, other family law issues

The digital age continues to have an impact on family law issues, particularly divorce and child custody. Advances in technology lead some divorcing spouses to become techno-sleuths who use smartphones and other gadgets to spy on their soon-to-be exes. However, before Plano residents participate in such sleuthing, they should understand that high-tech spying doesn't always support the best outcome. Likewise, if you're going through a divorce, you may want to curb your use of social media for the time being.

Custody matters uncertain for kids removed from woman's home

Child custody cases are an intricate part of family law, but custody issues don't always remain in the family. One Texas woman has vowed to keep fighting after Child Protective Services took three children out of her home after she cared for them for almost eight months.

Are social media accounts steering you toward divorce?

With the popularity of social media, many people don't think twice before logging onto Facebook or Twitter to update a status or keep up with friends. A new report published in "Computers in Human Behavior" may interest readers in Texas who are in a shaky marriage.

Update: Appeal to be heard after same-sex divorce ruling

Most divorce disputes do not garner national attention. However, one particular divorce case and related custody battle in Bexar County have become highly publicized. The results of this case are important on a personal level for the parties involved, as well as on a political level for the state of Texas.

Will San Antonio judge grant divorce to same-sex couple?

Some same-sex couples decide to divorce, just like their opposite-sex counterparts, but as you undoubtedly know, same-sex divorces are more complicated in certain states. Texas law does not currently recognize same-sex marriage or same-sex divorce, but some gay and lesbian residents who were married in other states are challenging the norm.

Shared parenting concept linked to more dads having child custody

Texas child advocates may have noticed that changes in how family law courts apply the venerable "best interests of the child" litmus test for deciding whom that child will live with have unexpectedly given a boost for to single-dad households. The concept of shared parenting is becoming the go-to paradigm for awarding child custody. Some say the rise of shared parenting is at least partially behind more single fathers raising their children.

Child custody and relocation

In Texas and all around the country, family law judges have to make hard decisions on what is in the best interests of children affected by divorce. Some of the most difficult may be those child custody situations in which a custodial parent is seeking to relocate along with the children. Whether it is an in-state move or one that would take a child halfway around the globe, move-away cases often result in one parent or the other suffering anguish.
