Finances can be tricky to untangle in divorce

During the dissolution of a marriage in Texas, financial decisions can easily become complicated in light of the emotional challenges associated with a marital split-up. Even when a divorce proceeding starts out as a seemingly amicable one, it can quickly escalate into an emotionally charged, drawn-out battle. One area where making clearheaded decisions is especially important, however, is credit accounts.

Divorce may impact retirement plans

Among adults in the United States, including in Texas, who are 50 years old or older, the rate of the dissolution of marriages is nearly two times what it was in the 1990s. That means more spouses calling it quits right before their golden years. A couple of tips may help those getting a divorce in their later years to protect themselves financially.

Child custody disagreement can spark various emotions in children

Divorce is an emotional roller coaster that sparks varying emotions in those going through it. Even as parents in Texas struggle with anger and frustration when dealing with matters such as child custody, the children can also deal with anxiety and sadness. In some cases, the children try to hide their feelings, but their feelings will end up manifesting themselves in one way or another.

Estate planning when there are estrangement issues/no heirs

Many people in San Antonio believe that they must have good relationships with their loved ones or have children to benefit from estate planning. Instead of taking the time to write their wills and provide instructions as to how to handle their finances, health care and other important issues if they become incapacitated, they neglect them. You do not need to have a great relationship with your family members or have any children to enjoy the peace of mind and benefits that estate plans bring.
