The definition of uncontested divorce

Texan couples who have decided to get a divorce will be looking at two distinct categories that their divorce could fall under: contested and uncontested. To be considered an uncontested divorce, it must hit certain criteria that can be somewhat difficult for many couples to achieve.

Preventing divorce from destroying your children

There is little else as unsettling as knowing that your marriage is coming to an end. You have exhausted all of your resources and you and your spouse have decided that separating is your best option to overcoming marital problems and moving forward with life. At Woodley & Dudley Lawyers, we have helped many people in Texas to work through the legal process of securing a divorce, arranging child custody and negotiating the separation of shared assets. 

How to speak with your kids about divorce

Divorce is rarely easy. For couples in Texas, one of the most difficult aspects of a divorce is telling their children the news. While your kids are bound to experience negative emotions about the split, there are steps you can take to deliver the news in a kind and loving manner. That’s why HealthyChildren.org recommends the following advice when talking to your kids about divorce.

Addressing negative emotions over family law matters

Family law issues can be challenging for all sorts of reasons, from a time-consuming custody dispute to the financial impact of divorce (property division, alimony, and so on). However, the emotional impact of a divorce should not be overlooked, either. There are a wide range of emotions that may arise before, during and after a divorce and it is important for people to address negative emotions properly. From anger to depression and anxiety, these emotions can have a negative impact on one’s divorce case and their life in general.
