Why stress over money ruins even affluent marriages

Concerns over money are often cited as one of the leading causes of divorce, and not just for those who don't have enough to make ends meet. Even those who make a terrific salary or own their own successful businesses can run into plenty of money-related stress that tears a relationship apart. In some cases, having more just means there are more avenues for stress and more ways for disputes to manifest.

Head-on car accidents often result in fatalities

Head-on collisions often have devastating results for all those involved. When deaths occur because of negligence in car accidents, surviving family members often pursue wrongful death claims. But can a wrongful death case be pursued when the driver believed to have been at fault was also killed in the crash? A situation like this recently occurred in Texas when a head-on crash claimed the lives of both drivers and seriously injured a passenger.

Recent Texas car accidents: 2 teens killed, 1 survives crash

There are currently more questions than answers surrounding a recent fatal car accident in Plano. Little else is known other than the fact that two teens were killed while another suffered serious injury. When Texas car accidents like this result in the serious injury or death of individuals, the victims or -- in the event of their deaths -- their loved ones may have legal options available to them. 

New study may affect choices regarding parenting plans

Research from a new study suggests that it is beneficial for young children who live with their mother to have overnight time with their father after the parents have divorced. The study's lead author is an associate professor of psychology at an out of state university. He said that overnight time that fathers spend with infants and toddlers after divorce benefited the relationships the children had with both their fathers and mothers. The results of this study have the potential to impact Texas parents' choices regarding parenting plans

Why you need an attorney if you're facing a DWI

Driving while intoxicated offenses are very common in the state of Texas. State officials estimate that a serious collision involving alcohol occurs every 20 minutes somewhere in Texas. In order to curtail the number of drunk driving crashes, the state takes a firm stance on DWI offenses. If you or a loved one are facing a DWI charge, don't self-incriminate or get pushed into pleading guilty. Seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney before doing anything else.

The importance of child support during a divorce

When your spouse files for divorce, it can change almost everything about your life. One day, you're going to work and coming home to your family. The next, you're served with papers and told to find a new place to live or coming home to an empty house. Your time with your children is now scheduled, and you're expected to pay child support.

Recent Texas car accidents: Man killed by alleged drunk driver

A traffic collision in Texas can have a major impact on the financial, emotional and physical well-being of a victim and his or her family. In the event of serious injuries, car accidents can leave a victim with medical bills, lost wages from missed work and other types of emotional and mental trauma. The aftermath of a fatal accident is typically overwhelming for the surviving loved ones, but they do not have to face it alone.
