How to know when divorce is the best possible option

Many Texas couples spend years trying to repair their marriage. Few spouses are willing to give up easily on a relationship that they intended to last the duration of their lifetime. However, there are certain circumstances under which a marriage is simply untenable and where divorce may be the best possible option.

Alimony can play a central role in a Texas divorce

Far too many Texas couples plan for their marriage without giving adequate consideration to drafting a prenuptial agreement. Prenups may not be the most romantic topic in the world, but they are a financial necessity when statistics suggest a divorce rate that affects nearly half of all marriages. Negotiating alimony and other terms of a divorce prior to walking down the aisle can make a big difference if the union ultimately ends.

Understanding how alimony can impact finances after divorce

As Texas couples prepare to end a marriage, they are faced with a multitude of important decisions that must be made in a relatively short period of time, and often under stressful circumstances. Many of those decisions are related to financial matters. The choices made during a divorce have the power to shape the financial future of both spouses. One commonly overlooked topic is how alimony payments will factor into post-divorce budgeting.

Mediation's benefits continue long after divorce

Mediation isn't just for contentious divorces. It works in almost any divorce to reduce stress and help settle child custody, alimony and property division concerns in a way that is agreeable to both parties. It's a good idea, because the mediator knows the laws and educates everyone involved in the divorce.

Prenups, divorce and estate planning all interconnected

Many Texas residents are aware of the recent passing of controversial media mogul Hugh Hefner. The 91-year-old founder of Playboy magazine lived a long life that was largely defined by his drive to create an enduring presence in the publishing world. Many of his personal choices were also called into question over the years. After two previous divorce experiences, Hefner was married to his third wife at the time of his death.
