Divorce more common when woman earns more

Sharing finances can be difficult for many couples, and money is often a touchy subject that may lead to divorce for married partners. Not having enough money is not always the problem. Texas residents might like to learn more about issues that could arise when a woman makes more money than her husband.

Insurance issues for stay-at-home spouses

A divorcing couple typically considers issues regarding real estate and child custody early in the separation process. However, there are other very important matters for divorcing spouses in Texas to take into consideration. One of those issues is insurance. Spouses with and without children should look into how they will handle health and life insurance after their divorce is finalized.

Stay-at-home mothers and property division

Some women in Texas who get a divorce may be among the more than 25% of mothers who do not work outside the home. Among mothers with at least a master's degree, 10% stay at home. This choice is approved of widely with over 50% Americans saying they think the mother is a better caregiver for a newborn than the father. Despite this, not everyone agrees that the mother deserves an equal share of the marital assets in a divorce.

Silent marriage killers to avoid

Texas couples get divorced for many reasons, including infidelity and other major breaches of trust. However, according to relationship experts, there are several less dramatic reasons that marriages fail. These "silent" relationship killers can be difficult to spot, but couples who learn to recognize them before they take root may be able to save their marriages and avoid divorce court.

What to know about spousal support

As part of a divorce settlement, estranged spouses in Texas may receive alimony. Alimony payments are determined based on a number of factors including the length of the marriage and a person's ability to pay. The age and health of those involved in a divorce will also play a role in determining how much spousal support a person receives. A judge may also consider whether a spouse has any assets or children to support.

Child custody modifications and the legal requirements

Divorce in Texas and elsewhere involves strong emotions. It is sometimes necessary for one divorced parent to appeal to the court for a child custody modification. A parent may have more than one reason for appealing to a judge. The court must follow one basic legal regulation requiring a judge to act in a child's best interests. This means that the court will not modify a child custody agreement without good cause.

Tracing cryptocurrency in a divorce

The divorce process for some Texas couples may be more complicated if one or both partners own cryptocurrency assets. Most people both in and out of the legal system are unfamiliar with cryptocurrency, and the asset can be both easy to hide and difficult to valuate.

Claiming dependents and tax credits following a divorce

Many things change when a couple ends a marriage in Texas, especially if children are involved. One of these things is how taxes are handled, especially when it comes to claiming dependents and taking advantage of tax credits. Being able to claim a Head of Household filing status coupled with the possibility of claiming tax credits has the potential to add up to significant savings or provide extra cash.

Getting through a gray divorce

As many people in Texas may already be aware, divorce can be a very difficult process that's emotionally and financially draining. This is just as true no matter how old the couple may be. However, the increasing rates of "gray divorce," which involve spouses over 50, has led to many unique issues for Americans close to retirement.
