Addressing custody, retirement accounts and more in a divorce

Ending a marriage is an emotional time for everyone involved, but the challenge of dealing with that aspect is not the only concern Sugar Land couples have. The divorce process itself presents numerous challenges as well. Determining what is separate versus community property, deciding how to divide retirement accounts and more can cause a great deal of stress in their lives. Things continue to get even more complex for couples with children. 

Drug crimes: The basics of possession in Texas

Whether it is prescription medication or illegal narcotics, if police find an individual with them, it could result in criminal charges. The state of Texas takes drug crimes seriously, and understanding the charges a person may face could help in building a defense. It may be possible to defend against the charges if certain circumstances exist.

Preparation is key before a child custody hearing

No one expects a relationship to end when it begins. Sadly, not every romance lasts forever as they do in books, movies and on television. Instead, a couple may end up relying on a stranger to make decisions that affect their future as they end their relationships. One of those decisions could affect the children's futures as well. When it comes time to go to court for a child custody hearing, preparation is key.

What to do with home equity in divorce?

If you are a Texas resident who is divorcing and who is also a homeowner, one of your major challenges may be determining what to do with the family home. As Texas is one of the few states that follow a community property regime, this is especially important, as each spouse is entitled to receive 50% of the total assets — as well as sharing the debts.

Driver faces DWI charges after accident involving police officer

Some road construction work here in Texas is done in the overnight hours in order to avoid causing traffic jams. The problem is this increases the danger to both the workers and drivers who may come upon the work unaware of it. Even with flashing lights, police vehicles posted at these areas may not be as easy to see as hoped, which could lead to accidents. On one such occasion recently, police suspected the alleged driver involved of DWI, but arrested him for failing to stop and render aid.

Consequences of an underage DWI

It’s a familiar scene: A group of college friends decides to drive across town to an off-campus party. There’s a keg, maybe some live music. It’s a big turnout. Problem is, nobody thought to designate a driver. Once the party’s over, that same group of friends piles back into their vehicle to head back to campus. Things go south when the driver swerves and gets pulled over. They get even worse when the driver fails the field sobriety test and gets arrested. Worse still when that driver turns out to be your son or daughter.
