Resolving Texas property division disputes

The divorce process requires spouses to consider a wide variety of factors. Many of these decisions are overwhelming; however, they are necessary to complete the process and to avoid post-divorce issues. One of the most contentious divorce issues is property division. Because it is tough to part with certain assets and property, divorcing spouses often find themselves in a battle over who gets what in the termination.

Special needs children could have an impact on alimony

Most parents with a special needs child who consider divorce already know that the child's medical condition could impact both child support levels and the division of assets. One thing that people are less likely to consider is the potential impact it could have on a request for alimony, which is also called spousal support or spousal maintenance. In cases where a divorcing couple has a special needs child, the proper term for your alimony is likely spousal maintenance or potentially contractual alimony.

How do you develop a co-parenting plan?

Divorcing with children is anything but easy. And, while it might not be the most ideal situation for parents, it is sometimes in the best interests of everyone involved. This leaves divorcing parents with the task of determining how best to parent post-divorce. There is no one-size-fits-all to post-divorce parenting, but there are ways to assess what type of parenting plan could benefit everyone, especially the children. If it is possible to maintain a relationship post-divorce, it can be extremely beneficial and valuable to co-parent.

What to expect when you are divorcing

Couples in Texas understand that no relationship is perfect. While some might be able to overcome the ups and downs that come their way, other couples become defeated by the disputes and conflicts that could arise in marriage. Even when divorcing is the obvious next step, this does not mean both spouses are prepared for what comes next. Individuals likely have many questions regarding what to expect during the entire process and ways they could overcome any divorce issues that come their way.

Custody of your special needs child could impact asset division

Going through a divorce when you and your spouse have children is complicated. When one or more of your children has special needs, however, the process becomes infinitely more complicated. There are many things to take into consideration.
