Divorcing Texans can still take advantage of tax exclusion

While the Internal Revenue Service has come under the watchful eye of the media lately, it's easy to overlook some of the fundamental functions of the agency. With real estate in Texas and other states appearing to bounce back a bit from the great recession, it's important for couples to familiarize themselves with divorce-related tax issues. Such actions can impact property division and other aspects of a divorce.

Oil mogul's lack of prenup could prove costly

In oil-rich states like Texas, the combination of the words "oil tycoon" and "divorce" might make one immediately think of the cost of such a split. Especially if the couple involved lacks a prenuptial agreement, the money that could be moved around during and after a divorce could be staggering. For oil magnate Harold Hamm, this may indeed be the case, as he and his wife are reportedly close to breaking-up.

Digital behavior can translate into real-world divorce issues

From both demographic and family law standpoints, Texas is a huge, diverse state with all types of divorce cases. One specific type of marital dissolution is the high asset divorce, not uncommon in a state where fortunes can rise and fall rapidly. In today's age of technology and social media, though, the effects of the parties' behavior on a high asset divorce can strongly impact a Texan's career.

Collaborative law incorporates simple steps to bypass discord

It is probably safe to assume that most Texans, as well as most people the world over, would like to avoid contentious breakups whenever they can. However, divorce-related disagreements can be notoriously difficult to resolve sometimes, but innovations such as collaborative law have emerged as ways to help.
