Could common law marriage affect spousal support?

One of the most divisive issues that divorcing couples face is whether and how alimony payments will be structured. No matter what side of the issue a Texas spouse is on, there are often deeply held beliefs concerning whether spousal support is fair. When continuing financial support is part of the divorce agreement, it is important to recognize the situations that could trigger an end to those payments.

In her recent divorce from her husband of less than two years, Cuoco was saved from paying spousal support by a well-crafted prenuptial agreement.

When it comes to divorce, virtually no pet owner wants their beloved pets to become part of the property division process.
