Retirement may be derailed by divorce

Getting divorced in Texas can be challenging from both an emotional and a financial standpoint. Unfortunately, for those nearing retirement, divorce can be even more detrimental financially, as not much time is left to recoup any losses suffered in this type of family law proceeding. A few tips, however, may help those getting divorced near retirement to have as healthy of a financial future as possible.

Refinancing the marital home can be difficult following divorce

For those getting divorced in Texas or elsewhere, solidifying their main goals early on is critical. One primary concern for some may be to keep the family home. However, retaining ownership of the marital home after divorce can sometimes be tricky.

When divorce is envitable, protecting finances is essential

At times, continuing in a marriage can be difficult, and when it becomes impossible, getting divorced is the only option. Individual decisions, unforeseen events and even time can all lead spouses to make the decision to get a divorce. A few tips may help those navigating this type of family law proceeding in Texas.

Uncontested divorce offers many advantages

If getting a divorce is inevitable in Texas, the best situation is for both parties to be on the same page about the need for divorce. It can also be helpful if the two spouses are generally in agreement on how to handle potentially contentious matters such as asset distribution, child support, child custody and spousal support. In this scenario, it is possible to file for an uncontested divorce.

Understanding ancillary probate in Texas

Dividing and distributing property after a loved one’s death can be a stressful and complex undertaking. This is certainly true if the decedent owned extensive assets or failed to clearly establish a will. Either way, the estate may enter probate court, where representatives will be appointed to notify heirs, record an estate inventory, pay any debts and execute the appropriate property transference.
