Think about insurance coverage during, not after, divorce

Texas spouses who are ending a marriage can quickly become overwhelmed by the sheer volume of choices that need to be made in a relatively short period of time, and under considerable stress. That can lead to important issues falling by the wayside. One of those issues is health insurance, and how those spouses who rely on their partner's employment benefits need to ensure continuing coverage after a divorce takes place. 

Earning potential of parents: What divorce courts look at

Whenever a case involves children, a court has to ensure that the best interest of the child is protected at all times. As such, during a divorce, the court needs to determine the earning potential of each of the parents before deciding on child support. This means the court has to establish what each parent can pay toward the financial support of the children.

Did a financial upturn factor into your decision to divorce?

Not all Texas spouses choose to end their marriage based on a single traumatic experience or many years of turmoil. In quite a few cases, the decision to divorce was made based on financial matters. Notably, many divorce experts believe that a spouse's odds of divorce increase during times of financial stability. Money brings opportunity, including the opportunity to move away from a faltering marriage. 

Temporary divorce orders -- necessary or not?

Marriage is a partnership characterized by many ups and downs. Unfortunately, in many cases, there may be more bad times than good or one bad incident that can destroy everything. The problems that often lead to someone asking for a divorce are more often than not emotionally driven, making it very difficult to think clearly about important matters at hand.

Your past addiction does not need to affect your future

Addiction is a disease, and it is something that anyone can be a victim of at some point in their lives. Alcohol addiction and substance abuse can have severe consequences in regard to the relationships we have and our ability to care for ourselves and our children. This is why it is often the case that children get taken away from parents when their parents are abusing alcohol or drugs.
