If I go to rehab, will I lose custody of the kids?

It's well-established that the opioid crisis has reached epic proportions in our nation, and Frisco is no different. Families have been torn apart by the addictions of one or more of their members.

When that family member is a parent of minor children, however, it is especially heart-wrenching, as these youngsters may be forced to grow up without one or both of their parents involved in their lives.

Fair but not necessarily equal asset division in divorce

One of the main concerns with divorcing spouses is how to divide the assets they have worked together to attain. Property that was once considered joint now needs to be separated, but not every asset can easily be split. Also, Texas is a community property state, which means that community property, such as money or your home, is considered marital property.

Dividing a home, retirement benefits, and vehicles can halt the proceedings as couples struggle to decide how to divide the joint assets. Also, couples may start the division process amicably, but tempers can flare when one feels they are getting the short end of the deal. If spouses cannot agree a third party may be needed to help.

A parenting agreement is your key to a better future

When you decide to move forward with divorce, it's easy to believe that your life will never be normal again. Despite the challenges you're sure to face, there's no reason to believe that you won't get through this.

If you have at least one child with the other person, it won't be long before you turn your attention to child custody, child support and other related details.

Sometimes Litigation Is The Better Way To Divorce

If you're getting a divorce, you might be reading online about how litigation isn't the only way to secure a divorce, and that you can get the job done through alternative dispute resolution with less stress and less impact to your wallet. That may be true for some people. But not every relationship is the same, and in some circumstances it may in fact be better to go the traditional litigation route, either through settlement or by taking things to court.

Abuse

Why do some spouses hide assets?

You entered your marriage trusting that your spouse would "love and honor" you and your marriage, but now you're not so sure.

While it seems reasonable (and maybe even obvious) that when an extended marriage ends the joint assets should be divided fairly, not everyone is always on board with this idea.

Is Mediation For You?

It's no secret divorces are usually litigious, aggravating, emotional and expensive undertakings. It's rare for one party to complete the process and recover everything they sought in the divorce, but one constant recurs in a majority of divorces: both parties often end up with what they would have had the case settled sooner.

Why You Should Be Honest in Your Child Custody Case

When your children are part the equation in a divorce, it can be hard to be reasonable and rational, especially when you believe that their wellbeing is at stake. Going through a divorce when you are having differences regarding what you believe is best for your children is an extremely upsetting and highly emotional process.

Parental Alienation Syndrome

The term parental alienation syndrome was coined by the late Columbia University Professor Dr. Richard Gardner, in 1985. He used this phrase to describe the process by which one parent socializes his or her child against the other loved parent. He noted that the condition or disorder occurred exclusively in situations of high-conflict divorce and child custody cases.

Keeping Your Cool in High Conflict Divorce

When you are dealing with high conflict in your divorce, it is critical that you get support for dealing with the big feelings that arise and that you have good counsel that can help prevent you from making decisions based on emotions and upset, rather than rational, long-term goals for yourself and your family.
