How do family courts view your military allowances?

As a member of the military in San Antonio, you are likely very familiar with reasons behind your current military pay scale placement. However, if you also happen to be a spouse (or a parent) that is in the process of filing for divorce, you may not know exactly how the court views your income status when determining things such as alimony or child support. Military members receive added benefits on top of their regular pay which many view as offering income advantages not enjoyed by civilians. The question is whether or not those benefits affect the amount the court considers when determining your potential child and spousal support obligations.

Detailing the process of petitioning the court for enforcement

Many in San Antonio may view being awarded the right to receive child support as the final hurdle that custodial parents face in supporting their kids. However, several may later come to us here at The Law Office of Roland R. Esparza, P.C. needing legal assistance to have their child support agreements enforced. If your ex-spouse has fallen behind on his or her child support payments, you may want to familiarize yourself with the legal process of having his or her obligation enforced by the court in the event your case requires it.

What is an agreed parenting plan?

You may find that during child custody proceedings in San Antonio, the court may care little about the tension between you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse, and instead focus on what it believes to be best for your children. Thus, it might be more advantageous for you to work with your ex to create an agreed parenting plan. What is this? It is a method by which the two of you can retain control over your child custody arrangement.

Revoking your ex-spouse’s power of attorney

When people in San Antonio choose to marry, they may often also decide to entrust their new spouses with certain legal privileges, such as power of attorney. If their marriages end in divorce, many may believe that their separations invalidate such agreements. However, they may often come to us here at The Law Office of Roland R. Esparza only after discovering that assumption to be untrue. If you are getting a divorce and have given your soon-to-be ex-spouse power of attorney, then you may want to know how to revoke those rights.

Divorce saga between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard ends quietly

There may be times when San Antonio couples going through a divorce bring with them a fair amount of emotional tension in regards to the failure of their relationship. Oftentimes, couples are recommended to try and work through their divorce proceedings in mediation. Such sessions are conducted in private without the risk of any disclosures being made public. However, there may be cases where a couple is simply unable to reach an agreement as to the terms of their separation in mediation, in which case their proceedings may move on to court. While this may ultimately be a better forum in which to resolve their grievances, they potentially run the risk of having their “dirty laundry” aired in the public eye.
