The health effects of a 'gray divorce'

From depression to anxiety to insomnia and even symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, divorce can lead to a lot of health issues. Such ailments might be particularly pronounced for ex-spouses age 50 and older in Texas. The chronic stress may worsen a number of medical conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.

Prenuptials still carry a stigma

While marriage certainly shouldn't be considered as a business proposition, people should realize that the act of marriage creates a legally binding contract between the two spouses. No Texas business owner is ever considered anything but wise by planning for the possibility of an exit strategy, but somehow, the prospective spouse who presents a prenup is often met with resistance from the other party or family member.

Making goals and raising children after a split

The new school year brings an opportunity for parents in Texas to set new goals and expectations with their children. For divorced parents, this might mean putting aside their differences and working together as much as possible to provide support and stability for their children.

Elements of a child custody hearing

Parents in El Paso who must attend a child custody hearing should dress professionally and prepare for questions the judge may ask. Examples of these questions might be whether the parent can offer adequate emotional support for the child and what the sleeping arrangements are if the parent has a small living space. The judge might ask a working parent what child care will be available when the child is not in school.
