Applying for a mortgage after a high value divorce

When it comes to property division and divorce in Texas, decisions will need to be made regarding the family home. If a party keeps the home, he or she will need to have it refinanced in his or her name. If a party was not awarded the home, he or she will want to buy a new one. And, if the parties agreed to sell the home and split the proceeds, they will both be purchasing a new home. In any of these situations, a person may need to apply for a mortgage. The following are some tips for those who are planning on refinancing or purchasing a home post-divorce.

Texas parents going through a divorce can seek legal help

When parents in Texas divorce, decisions will have to be made regarding their children. Texas statutes do not use the term "full custody" when referring to child custody. Instead, the term that is used is "conservatorship." Conservatorship involves the rights parents have to the child. These rights can be awarded to only one of the child's parents, to both of the child's parents independently or they can be shared between both of the child's parents. Conservatorship rights include the right to decide where the child will live, primary possession rights and who will be granted child support.

Can a parent interfere with their ex's parenting time?

Sometimes when parents in Texas divorce, the bitterness and rancor they have with each other lasts well after the official divorce decree is signed. When a divorcing couple has children, a parenting plan will be established that is supposed to meet the needs of the child. Unfortunately, parents may not always follow the plan. While sometimes unanticipated changes may need to be made, other times a parent purposely interferes with his or her ex's parenting time.

Modifying a standard possession order in Texas

Parents in Texas who are no longer in a relationship with one another will want to see that, despite their differences, they are both able to provide their child with a supportive and stable environment in which to grow. Therefore, the parents will either work out a standard possession (child custody) order out-of-court or one will be decided upon by a judge that meets the child's needs and allows each parent to have a meaningful relationship with their child.

Divorce turns high school football from pastime to legal dispute

Playing football is seen as a rite of passage for many young boys. For parents, having their son in the sport is a source of pride. Not to say the game is without its downfalls. From minor scrapes to broken bones football can be a dangerous passion. When it comes to concussions, tends to be especially true. As a parent, you are an advocate for what is best for your child and their future. Recently football has become a point of contention in family court. Divorcing couples are battling it out in an effort to decide if their child should be allowed to participate in an activity where the outcome of one bad play could leave lasting damage.

Who is eligible for alimony under Texas law?

Some people think that, as part of a divorce settlement, one party will automatically be ordered to pay spousal support (also known as alimony) to the other party. This notion may be especially true in a high value divorce where both parties are accustomed to living a certain lifestyle. However, Texas has strict laws on who can receive spousal support, meaning that many spouses will not be eligible for such payments.
