Social media posts could be used as evidence

It is not uncommon for individuals in Texas to have one or more social media accounts. Therefore, it isn't unheard of for evidence gleaned from social media sites to impact a divorce case. According to data collected by Web Preserver, roughly 33% of divorces occur because of affairs that take place online. Furthermore, it found that 81% of attorneys have found evidence from social media platforms that was worth using in divorce cases.

Strategic divorce may save money in some cases

There are situations in which a married couple might want to file for divorce in Texas even if there are no problems in the marriage. Strategic divorce can sometimes save the parties money on their taxes or help one of the spouses qualify for Medicaid. In many cases, though, filing for divorce can also cause problems with retirement accounts or health insurance. Ultimately, whether to file for strategic divorce is a case-specific question that a lawyer might be able to help answer.

Some things indicate divorce on the horizon

For people in Texas who are considering a divorce, it can be difficult to know what the right decision is. While it may be best to go through with the process, it can also be daunting as divorce brings with it a number of stresses that may otherwise be avoided. It is natural to want to avoid the financial, mental and emotional issues that come with divorce, and those considerations can cloud a person's judgment. Couples that lack respect for one another, mock each other or don't want to come home, though, might be better off divorced.

How to deal with your emotions in divorce

There is more to divorce than matters of property division, child custody, child support and alimony. While you're dealing with all these issues, many emotions will come to light. The way you approach these will impact your mental health and well-being now and in the future.

Making child support agreements outside of court

One way that child custody agreements can be decided upon is in court. However, some Texas parents opt to decide on child support using a more informal process. There are two main ways that child support agreements can be reached, including using alternative dispute resolutions and informal settlement negotiations.
