Divorce finalized for Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony

Texas fans of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony might be interested to learn that after separating in July 2011, the couple's divorce has been finalized. A judge gave the singers joint custody of their twins in a judgment on June 16, two years after Anthony filed for divorce. The terms of the divorce recognize that former couple will work to shield their children from the press. Unlike Anthony's previous divorce, he won't be required to give his now ex-wife, Lopez, any money in child support.

Woman alleges former spouse lied about home in foreclosure

A woman in Texas has filed a lawsuit against her ex-husband in the Galveston County District Court alleging that he committed fraud during their 2008 divorce. According to the complaint on file, the husband is accused of falsely declaring the home they'd shared to be in foreclosure when it was not. As a result, the woman says that the terms of their property division were inaccurately assessed.

Court finalizes Halle Berry's child support obligations

Texas movie fans familiar with the work of award-winning actress Halle Berry may be interested in the result of a child support settlement established on May 30. The star of "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge", "Monster's Ball" and other notable films will be responsible for a monthly payment of $16,000 in child maintenance to Gabriel Autry, the male model who fathered and is currently in custody of her 6-year-old daughter.

Understanding the process of divorce

For Texas couples about to end their marriage, it may be difficult to understand the exact steps that are involved in the process. It may be easy to assume that divorce is just a simple split in life paths, but it generally takes a good deal of logistical work to get there. Just as marriage is a financial, emotional, and property entanglement, divorce is an extrication. Often, one of the most trying aspects of divorce is the division of assets. Texas is a community property state, and thus, absent an agreement between the party, the court will divide marital property equally between the parties.
