Texas spouses who divorce may believe that financial overlapping will end after their decree is entered. However, spouses who were married for ten years before they officially received a divorce may be entitled to receive Social Security benefits that are based off of their former spouse's information.

Texas Supreme Court debates allowing same-sex divorce

The Texas Supreme Court has not yet come to a decision about whether to allow same-sex divorce in the state. According to reports, it could take months for the court to reach a decision on the family law matter. The question arose when two same-sex couples sought divorces in Texas after being married in Massachusetts. Texas state policy does not recognize same-sex marriage.

Prenuptial agreements increasingly common

An increasing number of couples in Texas and around the country are entering into prenuptial agreements before tying the knot. Based on a recent survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, 63 percent of the divorce attorneys who responded said that they have seen an increase in demand for these contracts over the past three years. There are a variety of reasons that people may not want to face a divorce without such an agreement, including a better understanding of the financial impact of a divorce.
