Divorce can be a positive step in the New Year ahead

The choice to file for divorce is never easy, no matter how amicable the two parties may be. Ending a marriage is a long process, and it can lead to financial changes for both spouses. Concerns over money and economic status post-divorce is one of the main reasons why people have concerns about moving ahead with this step, even if they are ready to do so.

Owning a pet is complicated when it comes to a Texas divorce

Some families just do not feel complete without a four-legged friend. These pets are often regarded more as family members than animals, forming deep bonds with owners. While there is perhaps nothing quite like the experience of developing that unique bond, it poses a pretty big problem during divorce. Namely, who gets the dog?

Do you know the most popular month for divorce?

The end of the year is usually a time of introspection. Many people in Texas use this as an opportunity to look back over the past year and to consider their hopes and goals for the future. This means that some people are thinking about whether divorce is the solution to their unhappy marriages. For many, it absolutely is.

Are you financially prepared for divorce?

Really looking into personal finances can be hard, especially for someone who has money worries constantly on the back of his or her mind. Avoiding these thoughts is usually not a good idea, especially when filing for divorce. This is because divorce can and usually does impact people's financial positions. This thought is not pleasant either, but the average person in Texas can minimize any negative impacts by focusing on both of these uncomfortable topics.

Can you catch a divorce from a friend? Maybe

There are few things quite as personal as deciding to end a marriage, or at least it seems that way. However, it is possible that factors outside of marriage could influence whether a couple actually files for divorce. One factor might come as a surprise to couples in Texas, because simply knowing someone who gets divorced raises a couple's chances of doing the same.

What do your parents have to do with family law?

Even though the last millennials were born over 20 years ago, some baby boomer parents are still actively involved in the details of their childrens' lives. These parents are even inserting themselves into family law matters. As the predicted amount of generational wealth transfer grows, baby boomers are frequently insisting that their kids sign prenups before getting married.
