Social media, such as Facebook and Twitter can have serious consequences regarding your divorce. Do not publish any statements or pictures you wouldn’t feel comfortable ending up in front of a judge. And if you communicate via text message or email, it is very important to understand that anything you say can and will be used against you, so keep it clean, polite and to the point.
Divorce is dividing up the marital estate between yourself and your spouse. It is important to know, and have documentation of things such as your income, your spouse’s income, bank accounts, real property, oil/gas royalties, retirement plans, automobiles and debts (such as student loans, credit cards, mortgages, home equity loans, etc.). If you have children, it’s good to have an idea in advance as to custody and visitation arrangements.
A guardianship is when a guardian takes custody over another person. The person over whom the guardianship covers can be a child or an adult. If a child is involved, often times the biological parents are unable to exercise care and custody over the child for reasons such as incarceration. Where the guardianship is over an adult, that person may no longer be able to make basic decisions about themselves and be at risk for fraud or undue influence.

The cost of your case will be the result of many factors, such as the type of case, the attitude of the opposing party, the attitude of opposing counsel, whether your case settles, the number of court hearings, the number of filings made and many other factors.

You can get a general idea of the child support amount by running a child support computation. At a minimum, you must know the number of children, the gross monthly income of each parent and the number of overnights each parent will exercise annually. Please note that any computation you run is only an estimate and should not be relied upon, as there may be unaccounted for factors that could change the final computation.
