Gray divorce: Sometimes surprising

As someone who is 50 or older and considering divorce, you may wonder what it would do to you financially. You're part of a group of people known as "gray divorcees," and you could end up facing financial ruin if you're not cautious when you separate.

Are you ready for a 50-50 parenting plan?

Many modern parents want to have a 50-50 custody plan for their kids. Indeed, family and child psychologists -- in addition to medical researchers -- tend to agree that the more time a child spends with both parents, the better the outcome for the child. That said, the 50-50 arrangement, in which the child lives half the time with one parent and half the time with the other, will not work for all parents and children.

Divorce after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

No one gets a divorce to take advantage of tax benefits. Divorce and separation are two of the most stressful and painful life events, and while property division and support are weighty factors, they generally are not what drives the decision to end a marriage. Yet divorce can bring about some major tax consequences, and the newly enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("TCJA") could make an already tumultuous time in one's life beset with traps for the unwary. This article will highlight some of the recent changes to Federal tax law that potentially have a significant impact on divorce settlement negotiations.

Can grandparents get custody of their grandkids in Texas?

Children growing up in divorced families may have one problem that they deal with over and over again; there are more people who want to see them than they can see when they're split between two homes. When parents divorce, it sometimes makes it harder for children to see their extended family members. This is true either due to the time constraints or because of ill feelings among family members.

Changing your name after your marriage ends

There is no question that it's an annoyance to have to change your name when you get married and again upon divorce. Every time you sign up for something new, that's another account you have to remember to change in the future. Things like your license, bank account and passport all have to be adjusted to your new name, whatever you decide to make it.
