Mediation may not help during divorce in certain situations

If two spouses in Texas are at the point where they realize their marriage cannot continue, they may be ready to get divorced. However, they may question how hard it will be for them to untangle their financial and legal lives. Splitting up through divorce mediation does have its benefits over traditional divorce litigation, but it may not necessarily work in every situation.

Handling the mortgage can be tricky during divorce

When it comes to getting divorced, one of the biggest areas of contention is often the marital home. After all, after living in the house for years, the couple may naturally be emotionally attached to it and thus not want to give it up. However, in some cases, one spouse decides to stay in the home, while the other agrees to take other assets instead and move on. A few options exist for the spouse who has chosen to keep the family house as part of a divorce in Texas.

How divorce affects adult children

One of the biggest concerns when Texas couples divorce is the effects it will have on their children. The process can increase family contention, especially when it comes to determining custody. New schedules, homes, stepparents and other lifestyle changes can be emotionally overwhelming for young children. 

Essential facts to know regarding divorce

For some couples in Texas, not getting divorced is simply not an option due to their irreconcilable differences. Knowing where to start when the decision to get a divorce has been made can be overwhelming. However, there are a couple of important facts to know about the dissolution of a marriage.
