The process of answering a divorce petition

When a divorce or dissolution petition has been filed with a court in Texas, the petitioner must ensure that the petition was, in fact, served -- which is the legal term for "delivered." This is usually accomplished via the individual's lawyer. The other spouse who receives the petition is known as the defendant or respondent in the overall divorce or dissolution process, and he or she must answer within a certain amount of time -- usually around three weeks.

Texas couples divorce, but who gets pet custody

Texas families come in all shapes and sizes. Some are small and consist of just the husband and wife; others are large and include children. One thing that many of these families have in common is that there are often one or more family pets. When it comes to a divorce, many couples are finding that the issue of pet custody is an important consideration.

Experts predict that the recent divorce proceedings between actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard will occur in much the same fashion.

How crossing state lines can affect grandchild visitation

Families are frequently spread out across the country. Your children may still reside within Texas but across the state in Austin or San Antonio. Other kids may have moved to California or New England. This can make spending time with grandchildren difficult in the best of circumstances.

The typical timeline of a divorce

When a couple decides on ending their marriage, neither one may really know what to expect of the process. As divorce can sometimes be a rather complicated legal process, frustrating delays or unpleasant surprises may occur along the way. When a Texas resident has at least a general understanding of the general timeline, this can help in setting reasonable expectations for the process as a whole.

What divorce can and cannot do

When a Texas couple is contemplating a divorce, most have a general idea of what to expect. Due to its depiction in movies, television and literature, divorce has become a familiar idea in our culture. Nevertheless, actually facing the prospect of it is a different story.
