Can you maintain financial stability during your divorce?

Because you and your spouse have decided to pursue a divorce in Texas, you are now faced with the task of recreating your life as an independent person. Sometimes, this can be quite a challenge, especially if you were married for a significant period of time. As you start to make changes, you should be watchful to protect your finances. The slightest misstep or irrational decision could leave you financially strapped and struggling to make ends meet. Fortunately, there are things you can do to stay financially stable during your divorce. 

WNBA player to pay one-time, $400,000 alimony payment

For divorcing couples in Texas, the stress of making important decisions about their future can often be overwhelming. One of the common topics that needs to be discussed and settled is alimony. This is when one of the spouses is required to pay so much money to the other spouse to aid in financial obligations. Often, the paying spouse is the person who has made the most money and is in more of a "stable" position. While couples can opt not to require each other to pay alimony at all, there are many times when courts require this payment to be made. 

Fighting with a spouse before divorce

Couples decide to end their marriage for many different reasons, from infidelity to incompatibility. In some instances, a marriage is brought to an end due to relentless fighting or a single incident that left one party emotionally scarred. Moreover, fighting may also take place once a person informs their spouse of their plans to file for divorce, during the process of divorce, or after a marriage has already come to an end. With regard to fights and divorce issues, it is important to know your rights and move forward cautiously.

How an approach to equal parenting can benefit your child

When you are facing a divorce and still coping with the emotional trauma of a dramatically changing relationship, it can be difficult to see your ex as a qualified parent. In fact, you may be tempted to focus on your former spouse's negative traits, faults and weaknesses. However, it is important to remember that he or she is also dealing with challenges and probably wants what is best for your children just like you want what is best for them. At Fabio + Merrill, we have helped many parents in Texas to negotiate beneficial child custody arrangements. 

Self-care can make divorce simpler, healthier and happier

Divorce is often associated with feelings of despair, depression and anger. Under many circumstances, couples resort to divorce only after they have exhausted all other efforts to try and amend their marriage. Because divorcing couples are left to try and separate all of their assets, finances and even time with children, the legal process of separation may seem painstakingly long in Texas. Despite bitter court battles seeming normal, couples have the chance to focus their energy on self-love as they work through their divorce in a healthy and effective manner.
