Mediation may simplify negotiations about child custody and more

Although divorce is the last thing anybody would wish to go through, some Texas couples decide to file for divorce as soon as a marital crack appears. With the many aspects that will need negotiation, such as child custody, parenting and visitation plans, and property division, it may be easier to achieve mutual agreements if communication channels are still open. However, some suggest that rushing into a divorce is not advised.

Older and getting married? Consider a prenuptial agreement

The average age of couples walking down the aisle is said to be increasing. While previous generations typically got married in their early 20s, millennials say "I do" closer to 30 years of age. Also, many same-sex couples who have been together for years can now get married as a result of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision, and other couples may be getting married for a second or third time. With the high number of divorces nationwide, including here in Texas, a prenuptial agreement may be an important insurance policy in the event of a subsequent divorce.

Postnuptial or prenuptial agreement can avoid divorce contention

Although some celebrity divorces involve months or even years of bitter legal battles, the divorces of others may even provide valuable lessons to divorcing couples nationwide, including some in Texas. When Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith announced their intention to consensually divorce back in June of last year, many people were cynical about their ability to keep it civil. However, the couple showed that by the lack of a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement can resolve some of the issues.

Property division can be successfully navigated by women

Women nationwide, including in Texas, are often stereotyped as more emotional and less knowledgeable than men when it comes to family finances. Regardless of these preconceived ideas, times have changed. Today, women as well as men  know how to protect their rights when it comes to divorce and property division

Appraisal for property division is typically multi-faceted

Divorcing couples in Texas typically have many important matters to cover in negotiations. Property division can be a contentious process, and accurate valuation of assets is vital. Deciding on what to do with the family residence requires each spouse to know the worth of the house to themselves and to potential buyers. Homeowners may put more value on special features than others would. An accurate market-related value is required, and for this reason, the services of a professional appraiser may be beneficial.
