Texas divorce: Marriages and divorces not created equal

Sunday, September 24, 2017

A Texas divorce is never the same as any other because of the differences in couples going through such proceedings. Sometimes settlements and custody problems are not an issue because one person chooses not to fight over them. Although a Texas divorce can be difficult if the couples can't communicate, sometimes divorces can happen quickly and with no issues.

One mom involved in the Occupy Wall Street protests has chosen to divorce her banker husband. The woman is one of the most famous Occupy protesters and left her four children with her husband to join the protests. The woman later sought a divorce from her banker husband and is walking away with quite a settlement.

The divorce settlement, filed just a couple of weeks ago, awards the mom a fund of almost $80,000 and an account that contains almost $6,000. Her court papers list her as a protester and state that she does not have an annual salary. Her husband listed his income at $65,000 per year. The couple listed the reason for the divorce as 'irreconcilable differences.' The husband will also receive primary custody of their children. When the woman was asked about leaving her family for the protests, she responded that she was 'fighting for a better world' and had nothing to feel bad about.

This couple's divorce appeared to be handled relatively quickly and with minimal problems. This story shows that all marriages and subsequent divorces are not created equal. For couples seeking a Texas divorce, it is important to remember that communication and the willingness to work together can help create a fair and equitable settlement for both parties. It may also allow some couples to settle far faster than others.
