Some things in life are just more stressful than others. For many Texas residents, the prospect of a divorce can be stressful. However, with the proper guidance, property division and other aspects of this stressful situation can be made easier for the individual.
The dissolution of a marriage can be financially challenging no matter how long or short of a period two people have been married. One of the most contentious aspects of a divorce in Texas and elsewhere is property division. A particular area of property division that has especially sparked a lot of discussion lately is the division of an individual retirement account, or IRA, that has been inherited.
Computers, telephones, tablets and other electronic devices have replaced traditional forms of communication and document storage for many Texas residents. In many instances, married couples share accounts or at least passwords; they also may have their devices synced so that they can quickly and easily share information. However, when this is the case, and the couple finds themselves involved in a complex divorce, these same devices can become a privacy concern for the individual.
Parents who separate or divorce will want what's best for their children. In a joint custody situation in Texas, that may mean putting their animosity aside and focusing on their children's needs as they move forward with co-parenting. Joint custody works best when parents still believe they are family even though the family dynamic may have changed.
