Common questions about Texas property division

Texas is a community property state. That means when a couple divorces, property is defined as either separate property or community property. Community property is divided evenly and each party keeps his or her own separate property. It can be difficult to determine what is community property and what is separate property in some cases. Here are the most common questions about property division in Texas.

Grandparents can often exercise rights to grandchildren

Grandparents love to spend time with their grandchildren. Many grandchildren have fairly free access to their grandparents. When parents decide that grandparents shouldn't see their grandchildren, there might be an issue. Of course, some grandparents don't have access to their grandchildren for other reasons. We know the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is a relationship that usually benefits the grandchildren. We will fight for the rights of grandparents when they have a legal basis for exercising their rights.

Consider the benefits of settling child custody with your ex

Working through child custody matters can be difficult, but it isn't impossible. In some cases, you won't have to rely on the court to decide what happens with your children. Instead, you and your child's other parent can work together to settle the child custody issues. There are several benefits to working with your ex to resolve these matters.

Do grandparents have any rights?

When a couple divorces, it creates a ripple effect. Suddenly, friends, coworkers and even extended family members can feel like they are caught in the middle or have to choose one person over another. Grandparents are often some of the most affected by a divorce outside of the actual couple.
