When does a prenup matter?

As part of a dating or engaged couple in Texas, when you look ahead to your future with your partner, it is important that finances be part of the picture. Certainly there are a lot of things that go into making a marriage work but the fact of the matter is that marriage is akin to a business partnership in many ways and the financial intermingling that happens cannot be avoided. Too many otherwise good relationships have been undermined by financial incompatibility or problems.

Divorce trends in the U.S.

Texas residents who have gotten divorced at least once or who may be contemplating their first-ever divorce know how complex this experience can be. The decision to end a marriage is a big one with ramifications that touch every part of a person's life. One of the parts of life that can hit people hard is financial health and planning. When getting divorced at a later stage in life, the financial impact can be even greater.

Family concerned about guardian's actions

Texas residents who must help their aging loved ones know how difficult this can be. In addition to managing logistics like providing proper care, there are often concerns about a person becoming exploited or financially abused. Sadly, this type of thing often happens at the hands of those who are intended to care for people. This is why great care must be taken when establishing guardianships or making other estate plans.

Apps may help co-parenting

Texas parents who are getting divorced have no shortage of things to learn and adjust to. Figuring out how to work with a former spouse to raise children is one of those things and it is no small task. Even with the best of intentions, putting conflict aside and kids first can be a challenge. Today's technology has evolved to provide parents apps and website that may well make things a bit easier.

How Soon Should You Begin Planning For Divorce?

Many people believe that the divorce process begins when one spouse files for divorce. That is not necessarily true. There is so much involved in the divorce process that it can be beneficial to begin planning well before the filing of the original petition for divorce. In fact, careful planning and taking proactive steps ahead of filing can make the process smoother and increase the chances of a positive outcome.

Estate planning for single parents

Are you a single parent in Texas? If so, you know firsthand some of the daily issues you must contend with when raising a child on your own. While managing these and taking care of your children is important, equally important is looking out for your children's needs in the event that something happens to you. Regardless of your age, estate planning should be a priority for you as a single parent for the benefit of your children.
