Don't Get Left in the Dark: Know Your Property Rights in Divorce

Marriage involves taking care of various household responsibilities, and in most cases, duties are divided up between the spouses. For example, while you handle most of your kids' needs -- picking up from school, driving to extracurricular activities, etc. -- maybe your spouse handles financial matters -- paying bills, monitoring the bank accounts, monitoring any investments.

The problem with this scenario, however, is that you may be left in the dark with regard to financial matters -- and property division -- if you're going through a divorce.

Should I get divorced?

Question: I'm not sure that I want a divorce. Things have been bad for a while, but I am still hanging on. Sometimes, I feel like it is over, but then I think of the kids, our house-our life. Is divorce really worth it?

10 Reasons that You Should Not Represent Yourself in Divorce: Doing it Right the First Time and the Pitfalls of "No Contest" Divorces

16296502555_f67784abe2.jpgThere are somethings you can afford to cross your fingers and hope to get right without much effort. Divorce is not one of them. Too often, I get hired to "fix" the wrongs of a couple who thought (admirably so), that they would agree to all the terms of the divorce, only to wind up three to six months now in the office of the divorce lawyer that they never intended on using in the first place. Why does this happen?

Just like I would never do surgery on myself, I would never suggest the do-it-yourself divorce. A do-it-yourself divorce may be so attractive and seemingly inexpensive- especially at time when money is the commodity that we are fighting over. I tell potential clients that walk through my door, "Whether you have one cent one million, you still need an attorney to represent you." The following are the reasons why:

7 Apps that Help High-Tech Cheating: Affairs on the Smartphone Just Got Easier

shutterstock_226987096.jpgAffairs have only become easier with Smartphones. There are a multitude of apps that facilitate and promote adultery. The thoughtful development of these apps is disturbing to say the least. If you discover that your better half is using any of the top 7 cheating apps, you need to rethink fidelity and consult a divorce lawyer because your sneaking suspicion is probably accurate.

Mediation: Choosing Not to Shake the Magic 8 Ball at Trial

Every good ending has a hard-won and sometimes difficult beginning. Mediation is no different. The process of ending a marriage in one day of negotiations is gut-wrenching, tragic and emotionally exhausting. And I'm just speaking from the perspective of being the divorce lawyer.

Be Careful What you Ask For: Why You May Reconsider Giving Your Ex More Time with Your Kids

I am paid to "fight for custody" of children, to represent parents who want the majority of access with their children- sometimes at a great cost. I watch clients walk through divorce and then live out the consequences of their choices. Many times, clients will not tell me what they want, but rather what they don't want. "I don't want HIM to have MY babies any more than the law allows." 

Another satisfied client!

Spousal Maintenance in Texas: Myth, Dream or Reality?

Not all states are made equal. This is especially true with spousal maintenance. California and New York are great states to be in if you poll divorcees about their maintenance awards. But Texas falls short in the spousal maintenance arena. And just as you cannot choose where you are born, you also cannot choose where you get divorced for the most part.
