What is the role of a parenting coordinator?

Texas family court judges make child custody and visitation decisions based on the children's best interest. If both parents can come to an agreement about child custody issues and the judge agrees that the arrangements are in the children's best interests, it is likely that the judge will accept them. Some parents find it difficult, or even impossible, to come to any sort of shared parenting or child custody agreement.

What to expect on the day of divorce

The end of a divorce proceeding in Texas might be as simple as answering a couple of questions at a hearing or as complicated as going through a jury trial. Once everything is settled, either by a judge or jury, the final decree of divorce will be issued and all issues resolved, such as asset division and child custody. However, there might be some steps people need to take before being allowed to have their final hearing.

Texas prenuptial agreements

Although the outlook at the start of a marriage may be positive, a parting of ways later on can become heated and frustrating. By working to establish plans for such a scenario through a prenuptial agreement, you may head off some of the biggest battles of a divorce if the need to dissolve your marriage arises. A thorough evaluation of your current financial standing and assets is the first step to developing a solid prenuptial agreement.

Federal law addresses military divorce

In most cases a military divorce in Texas is not much different than a divorce between two civilians. Most differences arise from the state residency status of a service member on active duty or the state residency status of their spouse. Divorcing military couples can sometimes choose from more than one state in which to file for divorce. In some cases, different means of determining the length of a marriage can affect how division of assets are administered.
