Divorce issues: Women now paying more child support and alimony

Women in Texas, throughout the country and around the world have long fought for equality in many areas. What initially comes to mind is the desire to have equal pay for equal work in addition to comparable advancement opportunities on the job. However, a recent report by the Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers shows that women are rapidly gaining ground on men in a different area. The report shows that there has been an increase in the number of women who pay alimony or child support following a divorce.

Divorce and pensions

Many Texas residents and others around the country plan for their retirements over the course of several years. They work on their jobs and routinely save money that will be used when they are no longer employed. Often, in a marriage, one spouse may be the primary wage earner and be responsible for funding a retirement account. This is a common practice, and it poses no problem for couples who remain married. However, a couple who gets a divorce faces some challenges in how to deal with dividing retirement funds.

Post-divorce tax considerations

Divorce in Texas can bring with it surprises that a couple may not have considered. One of these surprises can be dealing with taxes. In most marriages, one person deals with finances and taxes. This has the potential to yield surprises for the person who doesn't take care of those matters after a divorce. There are some pitfalls to be avoided.

Understanding proper courtroom etiquette

In today’s laid-back culture, etiquette has become something of a lost art in Texas and across the nation. Gone are the days when Emily Post and other etiquette experts instructed us on exactly what to wear, say and do, not to mention how to behave, in any social situation.

These are some of the most expensive divorce cases in history

When it comes to dividing marital wealth, every Texas spouse feels as though there is a significant amount of money involved. That's because everyone grows accustomed to their specific financial circumstances, and generally lives within those means. In some cases, however, a divorce can be astronomically expensive. A recent article takes a look at some of the most expensive divorce cases in recent history.
