Modifying child custody arrangements after a divorce

Child custody arrangements are not set in stone and can be modified after a divorce is finalized. If both parents agree to proposed modifications they simply need to submit the revised custody arrangement to the court for approval.

Requests for modifications where parents do not agree are more challenging and require assistance from the court. When reviewing motions to modify child custody arrangements, the court will always keep the best interest of the child in mind.

When will my divorce be final?

Couples seeking a divorce have a lot of questions about how the process works, and one of their main concerns is how long the process will take. When will everything be finalized so they can move on with their lives?

In Texas, there are some time constraints that do make the process less than expedited. To meet the grounds for a divorce, a petitioner or respondent must have been a domiciliary of Texas for the preceding six-month period and a resident of the county in which the suit is filed for 90 days.

How a prenup can be challenged and invalidated

Prenuptial agreements have many stigmas attached to them, and one of them is that the document is ironclad once signed. Many stereotypes in movies reinforce this idea, but this is actually a myth. Prenuptial agreements can be poorly written contracts that don't hold up under the scrutiny of the law, and they can certainly be invalidated -- partially or wholly -- as a result of malfeasance by one of the spouses.

But what, in particular, are we talking about here? Let's look over a few examples of why a prenuptial agreement may be invalidated.
