You may have seen descriptors for attorneys letting you know whether or not they are certified by the Texas Board, but what does this really mean? And how important is it that your attorney have this qualification?

If you are getting a divorce, you might have concerns now that you previously hadn’t considered regarding the division of your assets. Among these, you may be wondering, “What happens to any property or wealth that I have inherited?”

It is common in a divorce for people to be concerned about marital debt. You want to be sure that debt is divided evenly between both parties, but this actually may not be in your best interest.
