Social media's impact on divorce

Social media has drastically altered the way people conduct themselves. While considerable research has gone into how social media apps such as Facebook and SnapChat have affected teens, it is also vital to recognize how adults use these services. In fact, some have found a correlation between excessive social media usage and an increased likelihood of divorce in married couples. 

6 injured in 3-vehicle accident on Texas highway

The blame for a rear-end collision in Texas almost always rests with the driver of the vehicle that strikes others from behind. This is especially true when the driver of the other vehicle(s) stop lawfully at an intersection or crossing because even if the driver sees the oncoming vehicle approach, there is little he or she can do to avoid the collision without further endangering the lives of all vehicle occupants. A rear-end collision last week on Highway 73 in Texas reportedly involved three vehicles. Altogether, six people involved in the accident went to the hospital, three of whom received serious injuries and one of whom required transportation by helicopter. 

Can divorce mediators help with custody disagreements?

On top of the usual matters of divorce like alimony and property division, Texan parents have one other incredibly important aspect to handle: their children. How will you raise them?

What do you do after a hit and run?

Records hidden no longer: open adoption in Texas

Prior to the 1970s, it was common for most adoption records to remain hidden from the public eye, preventing any contact between birth parents and adopted children. The assumption was that this would provide adopted children with a concrete sense of security and belonging to a single family unit while providing birth parents with a sense of closure to move on with their lives. However, the assumption did not always reflect reality. As a potential adoptive parent in Texas, you now have the opportunity of participating in either an open adoption or closed adoption. Because this decision has long-term ramifications, we at the Law Office of Roland R. Esparza believe it is important for you to learn as much as you can about open adoption. That way, you can make an informed decision.
