Several privacy issues arise when considering use of technology in Texas divorce proceedings.

When a marriage ends, there are often many factors to consider. However, those going through a Texas divorce or elsewhere in the country face even more complicated issues when children are involved.

The partner makes it clear that, in her experience, the judge in a divorce case does not care about whatever personal drama may be occurring.
