If you’ve had a car accident on one of our busy roads, there’s a good chance that you wanted nothing more than to get on your way again. That is what the police advise most of the time in order to keep traffic moving. But that doesn’t mean that the event is over.
Question: My wife and I ran our own restaurant near Houston for the past twelve years. We’ve had our ups and downs, but ultimately our arguments over our relationship have leaked into our business. Our disagreements over every little decision have cost our restaurant thousands. I’m ready to go through with a divorce, but I don’t know what’s going to happen to my business. How can we go through a divorce without destroying it?
We’ve all heard the news stories. There’s a major crash on I-45 with two people killed and three sent to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Imagine for a moment if you were married to one of those people. They’ve got spinal cord injuries and through no fault of their own, now they may never walk again. With a long road to recovery that will include multiple surgeries and hospital stays, medical bills will mount. Hiring an attorney in this case is a no-brainer.
Going through an emotionally charged divorce is a more rigorous challenge when partners have a high level of assets between them, and no prenuptial agreement. However, the road back to a single life requires carefully walking through this tedious process.
Question: My husband and I split about 5 years ago. At the time, we agreed to fifty/fifty custody and I thought that was the right decision when the kids were young. My ex, however, is very permissive. It was annoying when the kids were little, but now I am beginning to think it could be genuinely harmful for the kids. Can we change custody and if so, what does that involve?
