Social media spews rumors in high asset divorce cases

When any couple endures a less-than-ideal spot in their marriage, rumors can start to swirl about the status of their union. High-asset or high-profile couples in particular can find themselves fending-off unwanted conjecture regarding their marital status. While celebrities have dealt with this issue for years, thanks to social media, non-famous people in a high asset divorce can also encounter a damaging rumor mill. The extent of that damage, however, can depend on each spouses' own online behavior.

Workplace grind takes toll on family life and family law

Even in Texas, where the economy hasn't taken as harsh a toll as it has in other states, families have to contend with a host of tough issues. Finding secure jobs, earning the income to support a middle-class lifestyle, paying for children's education, and countless other worries plague families every day in the Lone Star State. Recent findings from a professor at MIT, who studied family issues in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, point to continuing family strife as a result of the recession.

Filing for divorce online best for those with few assets

Residents of the greater Houston area can do just about anything online these days: pay bills, support charitable causes, fall in love, and now, get divorced. Less than a year ago, the Texas Supreme Court allowed spouses in the state to complete some basic divorce forms via the internet. This alternative was originally intended to help low-income residents or those with no children and few assets. However, some Texans are taking advantage of this increased accessibility to hide assets from their spouses.

Tax concerns can crop up during property division

While annual tax filing is a regular, routine habit for most Houston area residents, changes in tax obligations can prove surprising following a divorce. Amidst all the hubbub of property division, there are plenty of tax-related considerations that divorcing couples can easily overlook while focusing on marital property, community property, and the like.
