Divorce will be more difficult after the first of the year

Ending a marriage is never an easy process, but there are recent changes to tax laws that could make it even more difficult in the New Year. On January 1 of 2019, laws that have been in place for 75 years will change, affecting how taxes work for those who pay or receive alimony. As a result, many people have been trying to finalize their divorces before the end of the year. Those in Texas who will file for divorce in 2019 will find it beneficial to learn about how the process will affect them and what to expect.

Moving? Include virtual visitation in child custody agreement

Life is already complicated enough as it is, but add in issues like parenting and divorce and things can get so much more difficult. This is especially true when it comes to balancing child custody and work or family obligations. Sometimes, life simply requires that a Texas parent live far away from his or her child, but there are solutions to bridging these distances.

A postnuptial agreement can protect you during divorce

Some Texas couples feel that they do not have enough assets to warrant a prenuptial agreement. Others worry that bringing up the topic will send the wrong message to their fiance. For whatever reasons a couple decides to forgo a prenup, ideas of what a marriage will be like and the reality of how it actually is are often quite different.  However, this does not mean that they will have to resign themselves to being unprotected during a divorce.

How to establish paternity of your child in Texas

If you and your girlfriend part ways, but she is pregnant with your child, do not assume you will have any rights as a father. In fact, Texas law states that being the biological father is not enough to establish paternity when the parents are not married. Until you take the steps to establish paternity, your child does not legally have a father. 

What to do about your pets during divorce?

Leaving a spouse is one thing, but saying goodbye to a pet is another altogether. For many people in Texas, pets are truly members of the family, making separating from them a painful and difficult experience. However, going through a divorce does not mean potentially giving up on ever seeing a beloved animal again.
