Real estate appraisals a key point in property division

For couples who have never gone through a divorce before, it can be easy to assume that a family law judge makes all the important, legally-binding decisions. Where property division is concerned, however, the estimates of certain professionals outside the legal field can also prove crucial in court. In Texas, before a judge can make any decisions regarding a residence, he or she must be confident of the true value of the property, and this is where a professional real estate appraiser enters the picture.

Texas man, famous for unique courtship, gets divorce

In the age of online dating and social media, countless relationships and marriages are now forged via the internet. In one headline-making instance, a young woman from Florida was surfing the web in 2009 when she came across a male who shared both her first and last names. She sent him a message, the two eventually met in person, and they wed in Florida in 2009.

Mediation paves way for couples to live together post-divorce

With the recession forcing many Texas families to reconsider their living arrangements, some divorced couples are choosing to stay under one roof for the time being.
