The importance of life insurance in a divorce agreement

When Texas parents of young children are contemplating ending their marriage, they often try to negotiate a settlement agreement that will deal with spousal and child support, among other matters.

Is the easement to your property leaving you uneasy?

Maybe you weren't initially aware of it, or you were but had since forgotten that when you purchased your property, it came with an easement.

It's a good idea to get a copy of it so that you can reference it if there is ever a need.

What to know about divorce trials

Texas residents who are going through a divorce may be tempted to take their cases to trial. This may seem especially attractive for those who don't believe that their spouses are negotiating in good faith.

It isn't uncommon for individuals to spend thousands of dollars in legal and other fees.
