Billionaire divorce has interesting twists and turns

There are some divorce cases that might make our readers in Texas sit in awe as they learn the details of the divorce. In the case of Harold Hamm, the oil tycoon, a tense divorce proceeding has come to somewhat of an end. The "somewhat" comes because it seems likely the wife will appeal the court's ruling that resulted from a 10-week trial.

Property division in Texas: Assets and debts count

Property division is one topic in a divorce that can lead to problems. Each party probably has very specific desires that might not line up with what the other party wants. Because Texas is a community property state, marital property is classified as either separate property or community property. The items considered community property are divided equally between the spouses. What our readers might not realize is that debts are also classified as community property or separate property.

Grandparents' rights have a short history

As we have covered in the past, there are some instances in which grandparents have the right to seek visitation with their grandchildren. All states, including Texas, have laws governing grandparents' rights. That hasn't always been the case.

When can grandparents seek visitation of grandchildren in Texas?

For most grandparents, their grandchildren are a source of pride. These little ones are meant to be loved and spoiled by their grandparents. Sadly, some grandparents don't have that type of relationship with their grandchildren for various reasons. The grandparents might miss out on the grandchild's life and the grandchild might be deprived of a grandparent's love. For grandparents in Texas, there are certain rights that a grandparent has when it comes to their grandchildren.
