Amicable divorces can and do happen

Many people going through a divorce may be full of doubt and distraction. During this time of emotional imbalance, it can feel as if conflict resolution is just not possible. However, couples in the Houston area have the option of using collaborative law to increase their chances of a relatively amicable divorce.

Home equity a hot topic in high asset divorce

In countless divorces throughout the Houston area, both spouses decide that the best way to move on is to sell the home in which they once lived together. This can be beneficial for many reasons: a new residence can help each spouse move on emotionally, while the funds from the sale can be split more easily than other types of property and assets.

Even already-amicable divorces can benefit from mediation

When the option of divorce mediation is brought up in many conversations, it is frequently assumed that only combative couples can benefit from the deliberately neutral focus of mediation. However, even couples whose divorce plans are amicable from the get-go can take advantage of divorce mediation in Texas.

State's property division systems can differ, confuse

When couples seek a divorce, the final outcome can depend greatly on the state in which they live. In particular, property division is affected greatly by the type of system each state uses to allocate assets. Texas is one of a minority of states to use the community property system, which differs from the equitable distribution system in use by most other states.
