TV star Kaley Cuoco to divide assets in divorce

While celebrity divorces are often the topic of some news coverage, they can sometimes teach important lessons about divorce preparedness. Kaley Cuoco, who Texas fans will know as the star of the hit television series "The Big Bang Theory," has announced that she and her husband, tennis player Ryan Sweeting, have officially divorced. What is interesting about this story from a divorce law perspective is that the couple will divide assets based on a prenuptial agreement. 

Financial steps to consider during Texas divorce

The financial terms of a divorce settlement are among the most important stipulations to an already-challenging life process. For residents of Texas, divorce can be a difficult, acrimonious battle, especially if children are involved. This is why it is so important for both parties to seek support to determine what their best steps will be to secure their individual futures once a settlement has been reached. 

Celebrities approaching divorce issues differently

Celebrity news is inescapable in the era of social media, most especially when a divorce is on the table. Texas pop culture aficionados are already aware that celebrity power couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are in the process of ending their marriage, but they may not be aware of how the couple is choosing to approach their divorce issues. Mediation is just one form of divorce of which not everyone is immediately aware. 

Gray divorce comes with divorce issues

Getting divorced at any age is challenging. Many Texas residents who have gone through the process can attest to the fact that divorce issues are not always obvious or expected, and this is equally true for those individuals seeking so-called "gray divorce." A relatively new phenomenon, gray divorce refers to couples over the age of 50, often married for decades, who decide to end their marriages. 

Social media can exacerbate divorce issues

Most American adults in 2015 have some access to social media in their day-to-day lives. Texas residents upload photos, post to Facebook and share their lives with friends and family. However, divorce experts have suggested that doing so in the midst of ending a marriage can actually make divorce issues worse.
