Divorce: Some parents have to fight to see their children

Many Texas parents may understand what actor Jesse Williams ("Grey's Anatomy") is going through. He and his wife are in the midst of a divorce, and it recently came to light that his estranged wife may not be playing nice when it comes to him seeing their children. Her actions prompted Williams to file a request with the court for a parenting plan that allows for joint physical custody of the children.

Designing a parenting plan that will work after the divorce

Most Texas couples want to do the best for their children. When it comes to divorce, this can be a challenge since no matter what parents do, there will be changes to which the children will need to adjust. Designing a parenting plan that works for the whole family could help make the transition from one household to two less stressful and upsetting.

Property division in divorce, Texas style

Divorce is rarely simple, but, like many things, it is a little more complicated in Texas. Unlike most states, Texas uses community property guidelines to govern how couples divide assets and debts in divorce. However, unlike most other states that use community property guidelines, Texas uses "equitable" division instead of typical 50/50 property division.

Doing the best for the kids despite a Texas divorce

Unfortunately, some Texas parents end up in a custody battle worthy of Hollywood. They are unable to move past the emotional fallout of a divorce and seek to "punish" the other parent by denying him or her access to the children. This could ultimately cause the children issues in the future.

Yes, the court still has to approve your divorce settlement

Many Texas couples no longer want to go through a potentially contentious, time-consuming and expensive courtroom battle. Instead, they negotiate their own divorce settlements with or without the assistance of mediation or collaborative law. However, that agreement is still subject to the approval of the court.
