The unique challenges of late-life divorce

The end of any marriage can be a very emotional and taxing experience. However, older couples who are going through a divorce later in life can experience a myriad of unique and special challenges. Divorce rates among couples who are over the age of 60 have risen significantly in recent years, not only in the state of Texas but across the country. Older couples who are going through a split can stay secure and happy through their golden years by gaining an understanding of their options and the common issues that go along with ending a marriage later in life.

Providing financial support for one's child is not always the easiest thing to do, especially when money is tight after going through a divorce.

This week's column will give a brief overview of child support basics.

Families may insist on protection of wealth through divorce

Accumulating wealth is very often an arduous process, and one that takes a long time to complete. Handing that wealth down to the next generation is something that many families take a great deal of pride in, and hold up as a goal. For wealthy families in Texas and elsewhere, protecting that wealth from loss in a divorce is a top priority. Requiring a prenup as part of an inheritance structure is one way that families help to ensure that wealth remains part of the extended family.

When an addiction prevents a parent from providing the proper level of care for a child, things can be even more complicated. This set of circumstances places extended family in a position of having to step in and provide a safe and loving home for the kids, and grandparents are often the first to accept that responsibility. Now, one state has passed a law that will help grandparents gain child custody of their grandchildren.
