How might House Bill 65 affect the divorce process in Texas?

If you are a married Texas parent and you disagree with your spouse about whether to divorce, you may soon find it considerably harder to have that divorce granted. Per WSPA.com, an amended version of House Bill 65, which would put an end to what the state currently considers “no fault” divorces, is expected to pass, meaning it is likely to eventually become law in the Lone Star State.

Is your marriage working the way you want?

Typically, a marriage does not suddenly fall apart, rather, there is a steady decline in the relationship. And as time passes, a spouse may not even realize the degree to which things have deteriorated. But if you are starting to have doubts about the future of your marriage, it may be time to assess the situation.

Common methods used to conceal assets

Odds are, you did not walk down the aisle with anything less than complete trust in the person you were about to marry, but regrettably, trust and relationships in Texas sometimes fade over time. When a marriage is on the brink of failing, it is not uncommon for one spouse to begin to try and set his or herself up financially ahead of the split, and he or she may attempt to conceal assets in doing so. At Fabio & Merrill, we are well-versed in the tactics spouses sometimes use to hide funds from one another, and we have helped many clients make sure that any community property acquired during the marriage is divided equally.

What are the elements of a parenting plan?

If you are a parent who is in the process of getting a divorce, it is quite likely that your life seems very chaotic at this moment. And child custody may be one of your chief concerns. You may even be worried about how your divorce will impact the amount of time you will be able to spend with your children or when that time will be.
