Here’s a brief overview of how property division in Texas works, so you have an idea of what to expect.

Standing up in front of your family and friends and professing your eternal love for another person is as special as it gets.

Acknowledging the potential for divorce could result in a difficult conversation, but it may be one worth having given the right circumstances. While no one plans on separating, the American Psychological Association estimates that 40% to 50% of United States marriages end in divorce.
