Splitting assets such as retirement accounts can get dicey

Staying married to the same person long term sometimes is impossible due to irreconcilable differences. However, getting through a divorce can sometimes feel like an impossible feat at the start as well. A couple of tips may help individuals in Texas who are dealing with divorce issues, such as the division of money in retirement accounts, to navigate the process effectively.

Dividing assets, like retirement accounts, may be unavoidable

Many couples in Texas and elsewhere are struggling with their marriages but are simultaneously trying to make their marriages work. However, in some cases, divorce is inevitable, in which case, spouses must tackle issues such as the division of retirement accounts and other assets. Here are a few signs that getting divorced is a smart move.

DUI/DWI charges may sometimes come in bunches

In Texas and elsewhere, it is not unusual to see the same suspect arrested on two or more separate incidents of alleged drunk driving within days or even hours of each other. Despite suggestive appearances of guilt, however, the authorities must still prove the elements of DUI/DWI on each separate charge beyond a reasonable doubt. That is not always easy for the prosecution, especially when the accused is represented by an experienced and seasoned criminal defense attorney who is proficient in handling such cases.

How an underage DUI impacts college prospects

Texas has a zero tolerance policy for underage drinking and driving. If a teenager is found with any amount of alcohol in his or her system, then the minor could face a fine, license suspension and community service. Beyond all that, a teenager could also have a much more difficult time getting into college. 

Settlement agreement can cover retirement accounts, other assets

Negotiating with a future ex-spouse on a settlement agreement in Texas may seem like an arduous mountain hike. However, the process does not have to be difficult. A couple of tips may help with negotiating divorce settlements, especially when dealing with retirement accounts or other potentially high-value assets.

Man suspected of DUI following Texas crash

Car accidents often happen faster than those involved can even consider reacting. In the aftermath of a crash, a person involved could panic and respond in an unexpected way. Unfortunately, a man in Texas is suspected of DUI following a crash that appears to have only caused minor injuries.

Police officer faces DUI/DWI charge following head-on crash

A police officer in Texas currently faces a criminal charge related to driving while under the influence. His drunk driving charge came after police said he collided with another vehicle head-on. Anyone facing a DUI/DWI charge in Texas has the right to fight these charges aggressively in the criminal court system.
