High-profile child custody case centers on embryos

Many Texas residents are familiar with actress Sophia Vergara, one of the stars of the hit show Modern Family. Vergara is one of the highest-paid actresses on television, but she's making recent headlines over her ongoing child custody battle centered on two frozen embryos. She and her former partner have been fighting over control of the embryos since they split in 2014. 

Billionaire couple's divorce full of conflicts and contention

When a Texas marriage comes to an end, there are numerous issues to resolve and questions to answer. Also, emotions can run very high for all parties involved during the divorce process. In some situations, the conflicts are major and contentious feelings may last for quite some time. For example, a couple in another state has entered into territory far beyond what the majority of divorcing couples experience.

New study says divorce can help women retire well

The party line on how women should negotiate the end of a marriage may change in light of recent research. It has long been held that women shouldn't try to keep the family home during a divorce, but a recent study found that real estate serves as a great asset as a woman enters retirement. While every Texas woman has a unique set of needs when it comes to divorce negotiations, focusing on the family home may not be a bad strategy after all. 

Divorce issues: More prenups addressing social media usage

More and more couples in Texas and all around the country are having discussions before they get married about how to handle things should they split sometime in the future. Prenuptial agreements have long been helpful in divorce proceedings when it comes to issues of property division. However, many soon-to-wed couples are now addressing social media usage in their prenups.

What are the duties of a Texas executor?

Making a will is a serious responsibility that many Americans tend to put off for all too long. Investing careful thought and planning into this endeavor, as well as enlisting qualified legal help, is a good path to creating an effective will that reflects a person's real wishes.

Changes coming soon in how alimony is taxed following a divorce

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that was signed into law late last year made significant changes to the way alimony payments will be handled. These changes will have a major impact on those couples getting a divorce in Texas or elsewhere around the country. The changes will affect those people whose divorces will be final in 2019. However, some parties may need to act quickly if they live in a state that requires a longer waiting period to finalize a divorce.
