What are some of the common causes for divorce?

Over the years, researchers have spent a considerable amount of time attempting to figure out what causes marriages to end. The results can vary widely from study to study, but a review of several studies does highlight some common reasons why couples divorce. More than likely, Texas couples either contemplating divorce or already going through the process can relate to at least one.

In today's world, more fathers win child custody battles

Without a doubt, courts here in Texas and across the country once favored keeping kids with their mothers. Even under questionable circumstances, family courts used to believe that children were better off with their mothers than with their fathers full time. Fortunately, that bias is fading away, and even though most courts would prefer parents to share custody these days, more fathers win child custody battles than at any other time.

Texas family law accounts for the fact that you life could change

When you finalized your divorce and/or child custody agreement, you may have attempted to account for the inevitable changes that life can bring. However, no one can account for every possible change, and there could come a time when you need to change the terms of your agreements. Fortunately, Texas family law accounts for the fact that you may need to modify, or even enforce, your divorce settlement or child custody agreement to better fit the current circumstances.

Do I really need a prenup in case of divorce?

Prenuptial agreements are a fantastic planning tool for soon-to-be married couples. Virtually every couple in Texas could benefit from the protections afforded by prenups, but some people are understandably hesitant to utilize these marriage contracts. For those uncertain about whether a prenuptial agreement is appropriate for them, it is important to consider what is at stake in a divorce.
