Lessons on Civility We Learned From Our Halloween Party

1200x638_11-15-19.jpg

We recently had a fantastic Halloween party in our office that our paralegals and office staffers put together. I already know, from the day in and day out work they do to help clients, protect clients, settle divorces and resolve CPS cases, how well they work together.

Do I need to comply with the discovery process?

If your divorce case goes to litigation, one of the most important things you may encounter is the discovery process. Discovery is based on the idea that there can be no surprise evidence in litigation. Each party has the right to know what evidence will be brought forth before the judge when the case gets to the trial phase. Discovery is the mechanism by which one party can request that information from the other party.

What forms do I need if I'm trying to do my own divorce in Bexar County?

11-1-19_1200x630.jpgIf you're looking to get divorced in Bexar County, it is possible to fill out your own paperwork and go through the process yourself, and the Bexar County District Clerk's website even has a page linking to a number of helpful forms to get you started (which we have on our site as well). The issue, though, once you get started, is how to finish.

What steps can Texas take in child support enforcement?

It happens to a surprising number of parents. They have the best intentions for paying child support, but then something happens that gets in the way of that. In some cases, a parent loses a job, and even with unemployment, there might not be enough to make ends meet and keep child support obligations. In some cases, there might be a medical emergency that not only creates a new financial obligation, but makes it impossible for the parent to work for a time.

Should you trust friends and family when you're looking for financial advice in a divorce?

We recently came across an article from Mint that offered various tips from financial experts in a divorce. While we always advise each client to work with a financial advisor who knows his or her personal finances as well as what's happening with the divorce, we came across an interesting item we wanted to share for discussion's sake. 

Tips for talking to your kids about divorce

When people start on the divorce process, meet with lawyers, and start getting into the legalese around divorce, it can be very easy to become accustomed to that language. But children don't speak that language -- something we were reminded of in a great new blog article we saw recently. 

Help Yourself: Practical Advice for People Experiencing Domestic Violence

When we were creating the Help Yourself section for the Law Office of Lisa A. Vance website, we knew most of the entries would be about divorce. Even though we're a full-service San Antonio family law firm, who work on child custody cases and probate law issues as well as divorce, most of the questions we get are about divorce. But we also get a number of questions from people who are experiencing domestic violence, and wanted to make sure we were covering that as well.

Help Yourself: Practical Answers to Common Divorce Questions

We're big believers in seeking legal counsel when the rest of your life depends on it. Divorce is more than about just leaving someone you no longer get along with. If you've acquired assets during your marriage, you want to make sure you're getting your fair share of those. If you have children that came from the marriage, you want to make sure they're taken care of and that you minimize any emotional impact the divorce will create for them. 

How do I know there's gaslighting in my relationship?

This blog article is by Dr. Becky Davenport with the Institute for Couple and Family Enhancement in San Antonio, a mental health professional who works with the Law Office of Lisa A. Vance on select cases. 

Gaslighting is a term that originated from the 1944 movie Gaslight. Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse in which someone is manipulated into doubting their own experience of reality.
