3 aspects to remember when divorcing as a parent

When you decided that the time had come to file for divorce, you may have had a laundry list of reasons for why it was the best decision. Still, you likely have many concerns and apprehensions about the legal process itself and how you will contend with certain issues that will come up. You may even struggle with your emotions during this time, but allowing emotional reactions to guide your decision making may not work in your favor.

Is it time to choose a successor for your family business?

Running your own company may have become one of the highlights of your life. The sense of accomplishment you have felt over the years and the successes your business has garnered may have filled you with a sense of pride. You may have felt an even greater sense of pride when your children were born, and the idea that you could one day pass your business on to them may have brought you great joy.

What should you know about tortious interference?

There are many challenges that come with owning and operating a small business in Texas. It is not easy to maintain operations, stay profitable and meet all of your obligations, and sometimes, the temptation to step over the line with the competition can be too much. When the behavior of a competitor is improper and unfair, the other business has the right to hold the competitor accountable.

Business contracts could help better protect your company

As you have reached the point in your life when you feel ready to move forward with your long-desired business venture, you likely feel a sense of excitement and accomplishment. Though you may have already gone through many of the business formation steps necessary to get the ball rolling, you could still have much to do in order to get your company off the ground. While you bring more individuals on to help achieve your goals, you may need to more closely consider your business contracts.

How is child custody determined in Texas?

Every state handles custody cases a bit differently. At the end of the day, though, they all have the same goal in mind, protecting these young individuals and making sure they are in environments that will best help them grow and develop. As every family is unique, no one-size-fits-all approach to child custody will work. That is why Texas offers several custody options and various ways in which to reach custody arrangements.

Closing the breach in a business gap

When you and your partners first decided to go into business together, you were likely excited and nervous at the same time. As a business owner, you typically have a lot more obligation and responsibility within your company than you might if you were merely an employee. As you and your partners worked out your business plan, designing a structure, employee base, details regarding production, marketing, sales, payroll, etc., you may have run into several obstacles when differences of opinion arose.

Will my retirement savings still be mine after a Texas divorce?

Divorce changes everything, including your plans for the future. Despite years of hard work, the end of a marriage will almost certainly signal significant changes in your financial situation, including your retirement savings. While retirement is an important consideration in a divorce, it does not necessarily mean that you will have to give up on your closely held hopes and dreams for the future. 

Can you be in the same room? Divorce mediation could be for you

Some Texas couples simply cannot sit in the same room together without an argument erupting as they go through the divorce process. They rely on the court to make decisions for them that affect their individual futures. If you and your spouse can sit in the same room together, you might consider using divorce mediation, which allows you to create your own settlement.
