Property and asset division is different in a divorce, depending upon which state the proceedings take place. With Texas being a community property state, the courts split most property acquired during the marriage between both parties. It is important to understand this concept and how it applies to your pension in the case of divorce.
If you are divorced with kids, negotiating custody is often one of the most stressful prospects to deal with. It is ideal that both parents be equally involved in a child's life, but schedules, living arrangements and other obligations often complicate the matter. A custody agreement is drafted based on the circumstances of each parent. What happens, though, when these circumstances happen to change?
Child custody disputes are known to be traumatic for kids, but they are often just as stressful for the adults involved. This is especially true for parents who may not receive primary custody and then find themselves unable to see their kids regularly--or even at all. This is not as uncommon as you might think, but even if you have not seen your child in years, it is not too late to reconnect with them.
