Divorce and division of property for stay-at-home parents

Texas is a community property state, and this means that in a divorce, each spouse is entitled to 50 percent of all marital assets. However, most states have a policy of equitable division of property. This means that property will be divided fairly, but it does not necessarily specify what is considered fair. One study found that when it comes to valuing the contributions of mothers who stay at home versus fathers who are breadwinners, men and women differ in their conclusions.

Ending a marriage amicably

Ending a marriage in Texas, or any other state, is often distressing. The events that led up to the decision to divorce take an emotional toll as many spouses dread the divorce process, assuming it will be adversarial, stressful and expensive.

Child custody modification and legal considerations

A divorced mother or father with a difficult child custody arrangement may need to request a modification order. Parents can ask the judge to change a custody arrangement. However, Texas courts generally do not wish to make modifications unless a parent names specific reasons recognized by law. If the current arrangement functions for everyone involved, the court will not usually make any changes. The court will not modify a custody arrangement based on trivial reasons.
