How do I handle financial stress after the divorce?


One of the most relatable and troubling elements of this ongoing government shutdown is how it's affecting everyday families. Hearing about federal government employees going without paychecks, and how they're having to cope with that loss of income, has made many of us wonder what would happen if we were in their shoes.

How are children's birthdays handled in standard orders?


The Texas Family Code, in creating the standard orders that many parents end up using their divorce decrees, tries to account for how parenting time is apportioned in most scenarios. There are rules governing the regular school year, the summer months, and the holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. If you look close enough, you'll even see that there's a provision for birthdays.

Get back on track in the New Year


If you're looking to improve, New Year's Day provides a great opportunity. The psychological boost that the new year brings with it can motivate people to start doing the things they know they should, and to stop doing the things they know they shouldn't keep doing.

Practice the art of giving in your divorce


It's better to give than to receive. We say it a lot around the holiday season, and while some people might think it's corny or cliché, there's definitely truth to it. Seeing the face of a child light up, when he or she is opening a present you've selected, is one of the best things about the holidays.

How does the holiday possession schedule work?


One of the biggest adjustments that parents of children must make when they get divorced comes with the holiday season. There is a challenging reality a parent must face in not getting to spend every day of the holiday break with his or her children - assuming parents follow the standard guidelines laid out in Texas Family Code Section 153. Of course, it's possible to craft an alternative to what is in most divorce decrees in Texas, but as with all things decree-related, it's up to the individual set of parents to come together and craft an agreement they agree on, in the best interest of the children.

Take a break from your divorce this holiday season

While a number of couples try to "get through the holidays" before getting started with a divorce, some couples find themselves in the midst of divorce proceedings in the midst of the holiday season. And that's tough for a few reasons.

Lessons on Negotiating and Civility from the Late President Bush


This week, the nation mourned the death of President George Herbert Walker Bush, and his loss was especially felt by all of us living in Texas, his adopted home state. It's always a time for somber reflection when a leader of his stature passes, especially when considering both his military service and his decades of public service. 

How can a family law firm be both compassionate and tough?

Promoting Healthy Families

Blog 11-16-18.jpg

One of the most important things to keep in mind in family law - for everyone involved - is that the parent-child relationship is fundamentally the same throughout the divorce. A divorce decree means that parents will go about their routines differently, and they will have to be mindful of rules set up to manage when each parent will get to be with his or her kids, but they don't stop being parents.
