Getting a divorce can negatively affect your health

Going through a divorce is hard, but some people don't realize just how much divorce can affect you. In fact, divorce can have some negative effects on your health that you should know about if you are considering a divorce, currently going through a divorce or going to head to the courthouse soon to file a divorce petition.

Property division sometimes involves more than monetary values

Diving assets can often be a complicated process for people who are divorcing. A lot of people think about items like homes and vehicles when they think of property division. As we discussed last week, those aren't the only items that people might fight over when they divorce. In some cases, family pets are what cause a huge issue during the divorce.

Property division and family pets

Compared to issues like child custody and alimony, property division may be one of the more straightforward aspects of divorce, but when that property includes the family pets, things can get heated quickly. In the state of Texas, pets are considered the same as livestock and fall under the state's property division guidelines.

Grandparents rights questioned in Texas

Grandparents' rights continue to stay at the forefront of the discussion involving what is in the best interests of the children, as states across the county continue to work on legislation to deal with this growing need. In situations where there are two living parents, it may be more likely that the courts will side with the parents' wishes, but this can change if one of the parents is not present in the situation.
