Misunderstanding of separate versus community assets in divorce

Couples or individuals can often get tripped up with common mistakes during a divorce. For Texas divorcees, these often result from misunderstandings of family law and financial mismanagement. Whether it's a misunderstanding of separate versus community property or reckless financial behavior following a separation, these common issues can make it extremely difficult to rebuild after a marriage ends.

Local teacher and coach arrested on DUI suspicion

Being accused of a crime can often have personal and professional consequences as well as legal ones. Recently, a teacher and volleyball coach was arrested on DUI charges by a Texas State Trooper. The situation has resulted not only in a police investigation, but also an investigation from her employer, a local school.

Disputing rights to possession of a child can lengthen divorce

Getting a divorce can often take a long time, and many people seek ways to shorten the process. This is sometimes possible with mediation, but other time contentious issues like rights to possession of a child require added attention. While it can be necessary for some Texas divorces to involve a judge or multiple rounds of disputes, it is important to remember that this process can lengthen the divorce process.

Are bartenders responsible in juvenile DUI/DWI cases?

When people drive home after going out and consuming alcohol, there can be serious criminal consequences. Recent DUI/DWI charges against minors in Texas has led to bars and restaurants in the state questioning their ID policies. While it is understood that young drivers could face DUI/DWI charges after driving under the influence, there are lesser known consequences for businesses and bartenders who serve them.

3 reasons to fight for full custody

In an ideal situation, parents divorce on amicable terms and remain committed to parenting their kids collaboratively. This is not always how things go, though, of course—a divorce often involves animosity, and that animosity often bleeds into custody negotiations. If you are unsure that your ex is fit to co-parent your children, you might be considering advocating for full custody rights. 

Juvenile defense and corrections system looks to make changes

Juvenile justice systems are often the target of much controversy and criticism. This has particularly been the case in Texas, where turmoil and scandal have plagued the state's juvenile defense and corrections system. Recently, a new set of goals were handed down to the agency in order to support young offenders in rehabilitation, in hopes of refocusing the Texas Juvenile Justice Department as a whole.

My ex isn’t paying child support. Can I keep the kids from him?

As a single parent in Texas, few things can be as frustrating as not receiving the support you need to help care for your children. For some parents this means regular child support checks, while others would just like the other parent to spend some time with the children. If your ex’s child support payments are sporadic or nonexistent, you may understandably feel angry. Plus, the court system can be slow in enforcing child support orders. What if you were to take matters into your own hands by not allowing your ex to see his children until he fulfills his child support obligations?

Breastfeeding may have impact on parenting plans

The dissolution of a marriage can understandably be complicated, especially for those with children. However, it can be even more difficult for parents in Texas who have a breastfeeding child. In light of this, breastfeeding can certainly have an impact on a child custody case, including on the parenting plans created during a divorce proceeding.
