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.

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. 

How can you manage your finances during a messy divorce?

If you and your spouse are currently going through divorce proceedings in Texas, you may have already begun to experience the stress that comes with making an onslaught of important decisions in a relatively short period of time. While divorce is a satisfactory option if you are looking to end your relationship with your former spouse, it also requires you to be flexible and willing to compromise on issues related to child support, alimony, separation of assets and other topics. Managing your money during this time can be difficult if you do not know where to begin, and failing to be proactive about making smart decisions can leave you in a dangerous place when things are finalized.

Domestic incident tied to couple's pending divorce

For many divorcing couples in Texas, the process of separating is not without struggles, disagreements, compromise and sacrifice. In many instances, one or both people are required to give up a desired outcome for one that appeals to the needs and wants of both parties. Often, circumstances become increasingly challenging and hostile when a couple has had children together. 

Divorce after a car accident

When someone is hurt in a motor vehicle crash, various changes may come into their life. For example, they may lose the ability to walk, either temporarily or permanently, which interferes with their job or prevents them from taking care of other responsibilities and participating in activities they are interested in. Financial problems, mental trauma, and physical pain are some of the other consequences of a crash. Because these accidents can upend a person’s life in so many ways, there may be additional challenges they find themselves facing, such as the end of their marriage.

My partner wants a prenup. Do I have to sign it?

Many people associate a prenuptial agreement with divorce, and if your future spouse brings up the topic before your Texas wedding, it could leave you feeling anxious. However, your partner is not necessarily planning to split up; a prenup is good financial planning, and it can benefit you just as much.

Preparing for the financial changes that accompany divorce

For couples seeking a divorce in the state of Texas, each will face unique challenges depending on the circumstances surrounding their separation. For some couples, complicated decisions regarding child custody are inherent. For others, disagreements about spousal support will need to be solved. Then, there are other issues like separating assets that will require the attention and flexibility of both partners. One of the biggest changes that both people will face is an uncertain financial future. When people are proactive about protecting their financial health when a divorce is approaching, they may be better equipped to face the challenges head-on and maintain financial stability.
