Revealing hidden assets can lead to a more equitable settlement

The disintegration of a marriage may take place over a number of years. Within that span of time, it is not uncommon for one spouse to secretly amass assets that are unknown to the other spouse. In fact, National Endowment for Financial Education research indicates this occurs in two out of every three marriages. The reason that a spouse would attempt to hide assets is to prevent them from being presented in court for the purpose of property division.

National Adoption Month 2014 emphasizes sibling relationships

The adoption process can be a very trying experience for a child who needs caring parents. As we have written previously, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services is making a special effort to see that older children find good homes. While this is an important and laudable endeavor, it is also true that sometimes children who are eligible for adoption already have family members in the form of brothers and sisters.

Early mistakes can lead to long-term marriage issues

So often the things that cause fissures in a relationship are not what we may think of as big important issues, but rather things we may initially believe are trivial. Relationships can also start to fray if one partner allows the other partner to act in a manner that is in some way disrespectful. It is not unusual for a divorce to result from a spouse wanting to leave behind a daily grind of hurt feelings and resentment caused by spending time with someone to whom they no longer feel connected.

Virtual visitation helps non-custodial parents see children

After a divorce, a non-custodial parent can face challenges when trying to maintain contact with their children. Ideally, ex-spouses will live within a short traveling distance so it is easy for the non-custodial parent to take advantage of their visitation rights with their children.
