Divorce: mediation as solution to child custody disputes

Summer holidays are mostly portrayed as a time of excitement and fun, but it may bring along problems for working parents. In the case of divorce, Texas parents may have an agreement in place which works wonderfully throughout the year, but when summer holidays start, things may fall apart. At worst, a good working child custody agreement can turn into a dispute.

In one state frozen embryos could be used after divorce

Many Texas residents choose to create and freeze embryos in the hopes of becoming parents at a later date. For some of those individuals, their plans will change due to a breakup or divorce with the other party who contributed genetic material to create the embryos. When only one party wants to use the embryos to have a child, courts across the nation usually side with the party who objects. In one state, a recent law allows the party who wants to bring the embryos to term to do so, even if the other party is strongly opposed. 

Some couples divorce when it's the last thing they want to do

Most people think about divorce as the end of a very long and hard road; a time when spouses have tried everything and have determined that there is simply nothing that can be done to save the marriage. That, however, is not always the case. This Texas couple is considering divorce out of an abundance of love for their young daughter. 

How do courts determine the best interests of children?

Texas child custody disputes tend to center around the best interests of the child(ren) involved. Of course, every child custody matter is limited by the reality of the parents' work schedules, physical locations, financial means and personal histories. However, Texas family law courts invariably consider these issues and decide the matters in ways that reflect the best solutions for the kids.

Timing is everything (this year) in high asset divorce

For Texas spouses who are considering bringing their marriage to an end, timing is always an important consideration. That's especially true this year for those who are anticipating a high asset divorce, since changes to federal tax laws will take effect at the end of 2018. Specifically, spouses who are tasked with paying spousal support will no longer be able to claim those expenses as tax deductions.
