Whether you are an artist or just have a keen eye for appreciating others' art, you understand the importance of these creative pieces. Over the years and during your marriage, you may have collected or created several pieces that could hold significant value, both to you personally and monetarily.

Now that you are going through a divorce, you may worry that the art collection or even some of your personal works of art could end up in the possession of your soon-to-be ex-spouse. Because Texas is a community property state, it is possible that your ex could end up with an equal portion of the art unless you fight for a different outcome.

It is not unusual for people to find themselves in situations in which they must make difficult decisions. For some Texas residents, an unexpected pregnancy could put them in a predicament that has them questioning their futures. If you have a loved one who does not feel ready to be a parent, you may be considering adopting the child.

Kinship adoption can often help mothers-to-be have an option for helping their children have happy and healthy lives even though the biological parents may not currently be capable of raising children. If you are in the position of potentially adopting a relative's child, you need all the reliable information you can get.

Paying child support is a necessary annoyance. While you may understand the logic of providing funds for your child's needs and wants, child support is an expense that does not fluctuate, no matter your financial circumstances. In fact, if you are experiencing a serious setback, you may find the monthly support payments to be a heavy burden or even a hardship.

With your other financial obligations, you certainly have alternatives to explore when times get tough. Child support, on the other hand, is a constant, and Texas family courts do not appreciate excuses when you do not pay. However, if you are going through a difficult time, you may find relief in a modification of your support payments.

What it means to be a family has changed over the years. In most households here in Texas and elsewhere, strict gender roles no longer exist. Blended families exist all over the country, and many of them thrive.

Because of these and other societal changes, the way that people divorce has changed as well. Numerous couples decide to work together to reach a settlement on their own rather than engage in litigation. Granted, in some instances, going to court is necessary, but when possible, many couples take the opportunity to take another path.

Why avoid litigation?
