Determining if divorce impacts a probate homestead

It has been our experience here at The Law Office of Roland R. Esparza that marriage is one of the events that prompts many in San Antonio to begin to consider estate planning. Unfortunately, the same consideration is not always given if and when couples divorce. You may have happily created a will, trust, or other estate planning articles with your new spouse shortly after you married, yet failed to consider the implications of those same documents when you separated. If you never remarry, then the issue of whether or not you ever updated your will may never be relevant. However, if you do marry again, then failing to change your will could potentially cause problems between your current and former spouse upon your death.

When couples divorce in San Antonio divorce, the common school of thought may be that abuse or infidelity may have been involved. However, in many divorce cases, some couples cite irreconcilable differences as the grounds for their separation. As the name implies, irreconcilable differences are defined as one or both parties to a marriage determining that they are unable to reconcile with the each other over the differences contributing to their marital strife. Once this point is reached, both may decide it better for the marriage to be over given the potential for further discord.

Understanding parental alienation

Family courts in Texas may maintain the hope that when parents divorce in San Antonio, they will still be able to act amicably towards each other for the best interests of their children. Unfortunately, this may not always be the case. Recent years have seen the rise of a new issue related to child custody known as Parental Alienation Syndrome. This refers to the potential negative view a child may develop of one parent due to the influence of the other.

Who assumes your parental role while you are on military duty?

If you are a divorced parent who also happens to serve in the military, then the possibility of your being sent far away from San Antonio for an extended period of time may be ever present. You may wonder what sort of implications a deployment, mobilization, or temporary military assignment may have in regards to your rights and access to your kids.

Determining child support with kids in multiple households

For many that divorce in San Antonio, the dream of finding love again and remarrying may be very much alive. However, as we at The Law Office of Roland R. Esparza, P.C. have seen, doing so can potentially complicate matters for those paying child support. Yet if you do remarry and find yourself having to support children in multiple households, the law does allow you to revisit your original child support agreement.
