Let Us Worry So You Don't Have To

April 2018 Archives

A prenuptial agreement doesn't have to be stressful

When the word "marriage" begins to become a mainstay in conversations for young Texas couples, the bliss and excitement can often outweigh the serious need to talk about finances, both present and future. The very idea of sharing everything with a person one feels is his or her soulmate could cloud honest truths that can lead to financial and emotional disaster later down the road. Speaking with one's betrothed about money, assets and the idea of a prenuptial agreement may be a wise choice to helping couples develop a closer bond and preserving the couples' financial future should a divorce loom on the horizon.

Divorce after a short marriage and splitting the marital assets

Many issues, both inside and outside of a marriage, can lead a couple to separate. Whatever the reason, a divorce can be hard for some and an escape hatch for others. One Texas man is questioning his financial future after his wife of two years asked for a divorce. He is unsure of the exact reason, but feels he was financially used to help his soon-to-be ex-wife wipe out her student loans and other significant debts. The man now fears for his retirement and home.

A prenuptial agreement may not be upheld if a friend weds couple

As the world embraces the advances that technology has fostered, many Texas couples are opting to have their marriage vows performed by a friend. It is now easier than ever for almost anyone to be ordained online, and more millennials who do not identify with a particular religion are opting for this now-popular option. Many fail to realize the potential consequences of such a choice and may find that their marriage and prenuptial agreement may not be valid.

Child custody after abuse can further complicate divorce issues

For those who are victims of domestic violence, the idea of relinquishing custody of their children to their abuser seems inconceivable. Many instigators of abuse have found that the court system can sometimes enable one to continue the abuse by means of obtaining joint child custody. A Texas representative has introduced a bill that would require family courts to investigate all claims of abuse before ruling in matters of custody.

Divorce, remarriage and adult children

As seniors in Texas and across the country are learning, people outliving one or more spouses is becoming more probable, leaving many seniors with the opportunity to invest in new relationships later in life. Even a divorce later in life can leave the space to find another soul mate. But finding another partner so late in life has drawbacks, and the adult children from previous relationships may see the new spouse as a means to diminish their inheritance.
