Diagnosing property division for medical professionals

A sector of the economy that was left relatively unscathed after the recession, healthcare employs many in the Houston area. For those who own a medical practice, however, the booming field carries a host of wide-ranging responsibilities. These obligations become even more apparent in the event of a divorce, as it forces practitioners to assess their current practice in light of changing times.

A high asset divorce can feature a fair conclusion

In divorce cases where one spouse is a celebrity and the other is not, it is sometimes assumed that the more famous or wealthier partner will be financially damaged by a split. For years, media reports of non-famous spouses who received lavish settlements fueled these fears. Nowadays, though, the final outcome of a high asset divorce in Texas can depend on many factors, and the higher-earning spouse may not be hit as hard as they expect to be.

Timing is everything when it comes to prenups and postnups

Planning for a wedding involves weeks, months, or even years of preparation that culminate in the events of a single day. Planning for a marriage, on the other hand, is a continuous process that doesn't stop after wedding bells have rung. In Texas, couples pondering marriage have the option of completing a prenuptial agreement to outline goals and priorities. However, if a prenup is not finalized before the marriage, Texas couples can also make a postnuptial agreement after tying the knot.

Surprise splits show high asset divorce can occur at any time

In booming cities such as Houston, couples can become wealthy - or destitute - very quickly. In our media-saturated world, when a high-profile couple undergoes an equally high-profile split, it can feel as if the entire world is watching. For actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, whose marriage was arguably one of the most scrutinized Hollywood unions in recent years, their divorce was just as closely observed as their time together. Still, when a well-known pair parts ways, the initial public glare can cloud more important matters that happen later on.
