Divorce required to end common law marriage in Texas

The recent news of unmarried Iggy Azalea being served with divorce papers might have some of our Texas readers wondering exactly how that can happen. While most people assume you can't get divorced unless you were married, that isn't the case in Texas. Common law marriage is one of the interesting options when it comes to relationships in Texas.

Common-law divorce plagues Iggy Azalea

Imagine getting notified that you are being sued for divorce. That might be a shock for someone who really isn't expecting it. Now, imagine that you get that notification while you aren't divorced. You can imagine how much of a shock that would be. For rapper Iggy Azalea, that is exactly what happened.

Flexible child custody and visitation arrangements help bonds

Last week, we discussed the various types of child custody arrangements that are possible. After reading that post, some of our Texas readers might be wondering if any of those stringent child custody arrangements will work for them. Many parents have factors, such as a varying work schedule, that make sticking to a strict schedule almost impossible. We understand that and want to help parents who need flexible visitation and child custody schedules to still be able to parent their children.

Child custody: Cooperative parents might make things easier

You have often heard us discuss child custody on our blog. One such case was last week when we covered the Jenner divorce and how Bruce and Kris Jenner are seeking joint custody of their 17-year-old daughter. That might have our readers wondering exactly what this means.

Kris Jenner files for divorce under amicable conditions

When many people think of divorce, they think of a messy process that is full of strife and heartache. While that is the case in many divorces, it doesn't always have to be the case. Texas residents who enjoy watching "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" might be sad to know that Bruce and Kris Jenner are divorcing.
