Brides don’t walk down the aisle with bouquets in hand and thoughts of divorce in mind and rarely does a groom get married with plans of dissolution of the union. Yet there are couples every day,whether they’ve been together for decades or just a few months that make the tough decision to go their separate ways.
Just last year, Texans outpaced the nation in marriage, and consequently, divorce as well. As proceedings begin, obvious concerns like division of assets, child custody and visitation, and who gets the beloved family pet might immediately come to mind. But other questions that aren’t as clear such as matters of retirement payout, amendment of tax forms, and insurance adjustments aren’t always at the forefront. What about grandparents’ rights? And exactly how long does the divorce process take?
