4 things for parents to know about child custody relocation

Relocating is part of life, but in a divorced family, that's made harder due to child custody concerns. As a parent with a job offer, you may want to move, but you need to make sure you do so legally. Here are four facts about relocating with your child.

The financial implications of divorce

While disagreements over money are a common driver of divorce, most people decide to end their marriages for emotional, rather than financial reasons. Even if money is not the primary reason to choose divorce, it is an important consideration for people in unhappy marriages. Divorce can lead to financial ruin for the unprepared. This is particularly true for people whose spouses make significantly more than they do.

The January surge in divorces

When the calendar turns over, a surprising number of couples file for divorce. January could easily be referred to as "Divorce Month." There are a number of reasons that divorce filings rise in January. Most of them point to the common themes in many divorces.

Helping your children throughout the Texas divorce experience

When the decision to divorce is made, spouses who are parents of minor children can help them through the process to the other side by understanding what the kids are going through and by considering the advice of professionals who counsel parents and children in divorce. Whether the family atmosphere has been positive and warm despite cracks developing in the spousal relationship or the parental conflict has been clear to the children, the divorce news will rarely be easy to share.

Will I get alimony as part of my Texas divorce?

The answer to that question, like so many other ones in the legal arena, is "it depends." The Texas legislature, following years of debate on the topic, passed sweeping reforms to the state's alimony provisions in the past decade. The changes were largely made to clarify the circumstances in which it is possible for divorcing spouses to obtain spousal support payments and to make it less cumbersome for people who genuinely need alimony to obtain it.
