More and more couples nationwide, including in Texas, choose to dissolve their marriages in an amicable way. Prolonged court battles for child custody, property division, alimony and other contentious matters have made way for divorce mediation. Celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have spoken about the benefits of mediation as opposed to litigation.
Texas couples who are going through a divorce may be so overwhelmed by all the important decisions and considerations that form part of the process that they fail to pay attention to practical issues that may affect their post-divorce financial stability. That is quite understandable because most people are in emotional turmoil at such a difficult time. However, qualified advice for all aspects of a divorce is available.
Unmarried fathers nationwide, including in Texas, may be interested in the child custody battle of a father in another state. After eight years, this father has not given up and continues to fight for sole custody of his child. While child custody laws may vary by state, the dynamics of unmarried fathers fighting for their parental rights may be similar.
Coping with the emotional trauma of a divorce is typically so difficult for both spouses involved in a Texas divorce that the intensity of their children's feelings is sometimes not recognized. While parents are discussing and negotiating matters such as property division, child custody and visitation plans, children are commonly left out of the discussions, leaving them confused and stressed. They may experience anger toward their parents, despite being reassured that they are loved by both.
It is not uncommon for visitation rights to be one of the most contentious matters of a divorce. Fortunately, divorcing parents in Texas have access to the combined knowledge and experience of the attorneys of Warmbrodt, Winslow & Associates. We recognize that the circumstances of every family are unique, and we endeavor to honor the parental rights of both parents while not losing sight of the best interests of the children.
In Texas, as in other states, a person cannot get married if he or she is already married to another person. After an ongoing complex divorce, Rep. Alan Grayson's legal battle recently ended when a court in another state granted an annulment. This ended Grayson's marriage to wife Lolita that had lasted 24 years but was apparently never legal in the first place.
