Protect your interest in a family business in a divorce

Protect your interest in a family business in a divorce.  If it is a partnership, a corporation, llc, or proprietorship, get professional advice. You need a lawyer to help you value the business and get your fair share of it when the marriage ends.  One of the worst positions to be in is to be in business with your exspouse.  Very few couples can make that situation work.   Remember, human nature being what it is, if a couple is divorcing, they are not going to look out for each other's best interest.  The fiduciary relationship that exists between husband and wife ends when the divorce is granted.  Don't count on your ex to "be fair" in the future. Protect yourself by hiring an experienced divorce attorney. Talk to W. Tyler Moore at [email protected], 713-929-2242, 5005 Woodway, Suite 201, Houston, TX 77056--just off the West Loop.

Is adultery a property divisionissue in Texas divorces?

Is adultery a property division issue in Texas divorces?  Adultery may be the reason for a divorce in Texas if the spouses cannot reconcile their differences.  As a practical matter, adultery is one of the factors a judge may consider in making a disproportionate division of the marital estate along with a variety of other factors such as disproportionate earning capacity of the spouses, the respective needs of the spouses, and other factors.  It is a fact that the issue of adultery may be considered by cynical lawyers and judges as a question of the chicken or the egg. In other words, judges may not consider adultery as a key issue unless the children are exposed to the paramour.  That being said, it's good to have ammunition such as proof of adultery if it exists.
